Sting Reportedly Very Interested In WWE Deal

There was more than met the eyes to Sting’s rare appearance in a video on WWE RAW this past Monday. According to a report the Stinger has strong interest in jumping and WWE fans can start preparing to see him in 2014.

[adinserter block=”1″]I am sure I wasn’t the only one that found it a little odd to see Sting featured so heavily in a video on RAW profiling former world champions. The WWE has done plenty of these kinds of videos over the years and Sting was never given this much prominence. Well according to a new report this was more than just coincidence.

Dave Meltzer reported on his F4Wonline.com post-RAW podcast that Sting has sent feelers to the WWE. Meltzer reports that WWE officials are confident that he will sign with them when his TNA deal is up. This is big news although not entirely surprising given recent statements Sting has made on media interviews.

The seeds were certainly planted in that video package looking at the greatest world champions. When Sting comes (always an if to be fair until the contract is signed) he will be seen as a legend among new fans. If you are a Sting fan you couldn’t ask for a better way to get the ball rolling.

Sting has been out the last few weeks doing media for a new movie. In the past when asked about the WWE Sting gave polite answers but remained rather neutral. When asked about interest in the WWE, specifically a WrestleMania match against The Undertaker, Sting has put on his cards on the table and said he’s interested.

It’s no secret. I’ve always wanted to wrestle Undertaker; I’ve said that for years. And who would not want to work WrestleMania.

It would be awesome to have had at least one match with him. Again, never say never. I’m happy right where I am at the moment and we’ll just see what unfolds here.

These statements only came a few weeks ago so the new report is really not that surprising. I also heard rumblings that Sting was a little surprised to be booked to lose in a match where he could no longer challenge for the TNA world title. The Sting to WWE rumors have always been out there but I can’t recall a time where mutual interest has been this public between both sides.

Sting signs a one-year deal with TNA at the beginning of every year. Sting’s current deal should expire in time to have him debut around the Royal Rumble. Sting’s availability throws a real wrinkle into current WrestleMania plans. I don’t think he’s coming unless he’s wrestling The Undertaker. Brock Lesnar is already penciled in with the Dead Man should The Rock be unavailable.

What would happen if Sting is in and The Rock is out? Could they go with a Sting vs. Cena main-event instead and save Taker vs. Sting until the next WrestleMania? Both guys will be much older and there is just something special about doing this match at 30 instead of 31. Cena doesn’t have any strong challengers on the horizon so a Sting vs. Cena match actually makes more sense. Sting was somewhat introduced this past Monday as one of the greatest champions in history. But is that what Sting is coming for?

Regardless it will be interesting to see how Sting is booked in TNA going forward. The company has him for another five months and they appear committed to using him to get a new Main Event Mafia off the ground. If it truly is the end for Sting in TNA does the relationship end badly or do they Sting off with class?

[adinserter block=”2″]Sting on a reduced schedule could be a great thing for the WWE. You’d get fresh matches, some dream matches, without exposing Sting for being older and slower. Sting’s big worry in the past has been the WWE track record of burying ex-WCW guys. I would have to assume if Sting is coming that he has a personal guarantee that won’t be the case.

WrestleMania 30 just got that much bigger!

  1. Also, Hulk Hogan was in the videos on RAW. Does that mean a return is on the cards for him? Calm the speculation down. This happened two years ago and everyone was left disapointed.

  2. To be fair, though, you're citing a report that is also pure speculation.

    Yes, he's always said he'd like to do a Wrestlemania gig with the Undertaker, but in the very same interviews he also said that he's had no real direct contact with WWE for about 10 years.

    Also, everyone is forgetting the inevitable "no-compete" clause. Sting's TNA deal is up in January, but with a standard 3 month no compete clause, there's no way he'd be ready for Wrestlemania, and certainly not the Royal Rumble.

    I'd like to see it; I think Sting deserves a good send off on a bigger stage than TNA can provide. But I'll believe it when I see it, as the IWC has an appalling track record of inaccurate reporting on this subject.

    • Not really. Did you listen to the report? There was nothing speculative about it. The report said Sting has sent the WWE feelers. Do you honestly think he'd be spotlighted on Monday if they didn't think he was coming? No way.

      • WWE try to make it like sting has worked there before. They try to put WCW's best moments as part of their history. Like one big family. That doesn't mean he's going. I personally don't think he will.

    • He has repeatedly said he is interested. That does not mean he would actually go through with it. Of course a match at Wrestlemania would cross his mind but i think his loyalty to WCW and TNA would stick in the end. Sting has no reason to join WWE he is filthy rich as it is and his legacy in the industry is already secured. He is already considered THE Icon.

        • Sting was loyal to WCW and is loyal to TNA. He would have gone to WWE a long time ago if he wasn't. He is signing one year deals because he wants to make sure he can retire any year he wants. Why would a 54 year olf tie himself to a 3 or 4 year deal?

    • Exactly. This guy is only reporting this because he is anti TNA. This writer is a sad, sad person. If sting chose to go to TNA when it was still in Nashville over WWE then he isn't going to jump now after he helped to build it into a mainstream show and the most watched wrestling show in the UK. This speculation comes every year at this time because sting only signs one year deals because he doen't want to be tied down if he is considering retirement. Every year same Nonesense speculation. Get a life.

      • Yep that's it. I am not creating this story, I am just commenting on a story that is out there. I hope I hear from you in a year when he's wrestling on Money in the Bank.

        • Same here. I know where to find you when the exact same thing happens as last year and the year before….This story was "out there" twice before and nothing came of it. Don't get your hopes up man.
