More Backstage News on Sting Possibly Coming to WWE – What Officials Realize, Hall of Fame Talk

– We’ve noted from multiple sources that WWE officials do not see signing Sting as a priority. While this is true, they do want him as a part of the company as they realize that Sting is sort of the last piece to WWE’s WCW puzzle. They also realize that there is lots of money to be made with Sting through t-shirts, action figures and other merchandise.

The latest word is that Sting may pop up at WrestleMania XXX, but not wrestle, and then wrestle 1 or 2 matches before being used as a special attraction. With WrestleMania 31 being held in California next year and Sting being a California guy, there’s potential for him to be a cornerstone for next year’s Hall of Fame class.

  • Truth B Told

    On one hand, it’s Sting, a man with plenty of name value for nostalgia lovers. On the other hand, it’s Sting, a man who’s pretty much at the end of his career and is definitely past his prime. Personally, I’d rather not see him get back in the ring ’cause at some point, you’ve really gotta’ know when to walk away, unless you want to end up like Hogan. Or even Edge for that matter. Undertaker would be a perfect example of a guy who doesn’t know when to walk away as he’s now reduced to one match a year, if that. ONE MATCH. In other words, it takes him an ENTIRE YEAR for him to recover from the last year’s match. What kind of quality of life do you think a person in that kind of condition has? So, as a true fan, I’m saying I appreciate the years of entertainment but I’m also saying “hang it up.” Go out while you can still walk out. On your own.

    WWE is their own worst enemy with stuff like this. Yes Sting is past his prime but how is he not a priority? It’s STING you know the most popular superstar WCW ever had multi time world champion. And they openly let this be known he’s not a big deal and he hasnt even signed a deal yet. He should come out at E.C. and tell them to stick it like he did Hogan

    “WWE officials don’t see sting as a priority”

    And yet they’re giving Batista a main event spot after 4 years and not wrestling a single match

    Sound logic……. :/
