According to Recent reports by pwmania.com Negotiations with former WCW heavyweight champion Sting are closer than ever.
“Negotiations are ongoing between Sting and WWE, PWInsider reports. Word is that a decision must be made within the next 2 weeks on whether or not Sting is going to join the company.”
“Several factors are being worked out right now including scheduling and what Sting is and isn’t willing to do creatively. This does not mean Sting is definitely coming to WWE and he could very well work another year with TNA but the impression has been given that Sting realizes if he’s going to have a run with WWE, this is the time.”
“The impression was also given, within WWE, that there will not be a match against The Undertaker, at least at this year’s WrestleMania event. However, the idea of Sting debuting at WrestleMania XXX with some kind of cameo or vignette has been discussed.”
“There’s also a feeling that Sting is the face of WCW and with WWE promoting a lot of WCW content on the Network, he could be an asset there. Sting is considered a fresh, unique face when they are used to using people like Ric Flair and Diamond Dallas Page to promote their WCW projects.”
While it was apparently reported Monday that Sting and The WWE hadn’t yet come to any real terms Rob Feinstein of RFVideo.com thinks otherwise.
I was just informed Sting has signed a deal with WWE in the last 24 hours. I still think personally he will show up after Mania since it seems like Undertaker vs Brock is what they are aiming for. Reminds me when everyone thought Brock would debut in Miami but they waited for Raw.
The Icon has been apart of the wrestling industry for over 29 years, but not once has he stepped foot in a WWE sanctioned ring or worked anywhere near Vince McMahon. So having him debut after years of anticipation would be nothing short of exciting.
But after 29 years how much longer can sting really hold on?
Stings departure from Impact wrestling has left a small window of opportunity. At 54 years of age and 29 years of dedication to his craft, this may be the last chance stinger has to sign a lucrative deal and have a worthwhile run with the company.
If Sting decides to once again pass on signing with the company, then there’s a very good chance the two parties will never come to terms, The Man Called Sting will never get the chance to wrestle inside of a WWE ring, and all of this this will become nothing more than a purposeless pipe dream.
