Backstage News On Sting Possibly Leaving TNA For WWE Soon

sting

Many fans noticed current TNA Impact Wrestling performer and general pro wrestling legend Sting in the WWE video packages that highlights past World Heavyweight Champions on Monday’s edition of WWE RAW.

According to new reports, Sting was included in the aforementioned video packages for a reason.

Word is that Sting is once again reportedly interested in signing with World Wrestling Entertainment. While Sting has apparently not opened direct negotiations with the company, he has reportedly sent feelers to WWE.

Reports claim there is a lot of confidence on the side of WWE that Sting will eventually be a part of their roster.

  • Angelo

    So Sting vs Undertaker will eventually happen??

    • Kris Mystery

      In a wheelchair match if it doesn’t happen soon.

  • ADementedJim

    It’s about DAMN time (except 10 years too late)

  • Eric

    I think we would all love the thought of Sting in WWE and him facing The Undertaker. For me I wish it would have happened 2 – 3 years ago because now I don’t see them as great as they used to be (father time seemed to knock at their door and they answered). However, I still think it would be a great “get” for WWE if “The Icon” signed with them…I could see the fueds beyond the Undertaker like with Punk, Cena and possibly Triple H. Not to mention it will allow Sting to work even less often and not have the need to return every 3 – 4 weeks (like he seems to be doing in TNA now).

    • pwnez

      For me I wish Undertaker vs Sting would have happened 10 years ago. I’m not going to get my hopes up because we’ve heard all of this before and it never happened.

      • Don

        Agreed. I was over it after 2009.

    • GodsLoyalSon

      I agree with those names and I may even pitch a possible Lesnar/Sting fued as well with a program with him Nash and/or Booker

      • Al Oli

        I never wanna see Kevin Mash wrestle on tv again.

        • Andrew “The Raven” Outlaw

          y not?

        • GodsLoyalSon

          Yeah but think of the nastalgia factor the fans would get when they see those two in the ring together (I’m saying that because I didn’t watch TNA while Nash was there).

          • Eric

            I think because of a recent run those two both had in TNA and them being in the same stable there I would not think back to WCW but to TNA.

        • AVPredator4985

          I’d be fine with it. All for nostalgia man.

    • AVPredator4985

      I disagree, I think for their age they both are in quite good shape. How many other 54-year old wrestlers do you know that could still put on a decent main event match? Honestly, the quality of the match isn’t what I’m worried about. For these guys it wouldn’t be about that, it would be all nostalgia and the fact that these two iconic legends are in the same ring for the first time. I think they will still be able to put on a great match. It doesn’t have to be high risk for it to be a great match. However, if they’re going to do it, they’d better do it soon.

  • yrabadi

    I won’t believe it till I see it.

    • Pozessed

      Same. If Sting had a match against Undertaker which is what would probably happen then it wouldn’t live up to what we would hope, it would be better to be a wrestling fans dream match.

      • yrabadi

        I agree completely with you. I think, it’s safe to say, that particular match would be far more enjoyable in the ‘what if’ minds of wrestling fanboys across the world.

        Though to be honest, if it didn’t happen, I can’t say I wouldn’t be hyped for it. More than anything else, curious, as to how it would all play out.

        Who knows man? HBK and Hart hugged it out on RAW. Anything can freakin happen.

        • Pozessed

          Yeah, I would be more than hyped and probably be the biggest match in years behind Rock Vs Cena, but normally in a Taker WM match he goes up against a younger guy who can still perform at top level, for example Punk who did a lot in that match which gave Taker a chance to rest even though he did a lot. When I see Sting perform these days it reminds me of when Undertaker was near to retiring to the once a year return since he slowed down in the ring and began to need more resting periods in matches. I think the guys would deliver but it would not be a GREAT match as all of us expect but instead something shorter and more satisfactory.

      • http://twitter.com/TheSobi SOBI

        Yeah they should just face off
        Nod in acknowledgement and respect
        and leave with out saying any thing

    • Cronion2415

      Same Bro

  • RomBuster

    Wait wait… what? Let me get this straight.
    Sting has expressed his feelings on how and why he will ‘never’ be a part of Vince Mcmahon’s ‘system’, has declined the offer of being in the WWE HOF and facing Taker at WM 27.
    While he refused those amazing offerings, he showed his ‘loyalty’ and came back toTNA while TNA was on it’s most confusing storyline roller coaster rides in 2011 ( not to mention Victory Road ).
    And NOW, after being the first inductee in TNA HOF and had 2 straight years of being in the main event and also when NOW they’re doing some nostalgic stuff like bringing back the Main Event Mafia and making him be the leader….. NOW HE WANTS TO GO TO WWE ?!!!
    Nah I’m sorry, I call BS on this one. Just a fantasized rumor.

    • yrabadi

      Not necessarily. Peoples views and perspectives on things change with time. It’s very possible Sting has come to a place now, where he knows he’s winding down, and the idea of doing a match or two for big money in WWE appeals to him. You never know.

    • Kayne Corey

      His contract doesn’t even expire until I think next January or something. Calm down.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        End of the year I believe.

    • Mr_DJ

      Well sir, you’re wrong. My friend of mine has said the following…

      “Sting tends to be good about business.
      He avoided the WWF/E when they were the most raunchy because he really does have a strong Christian fanbase. I think seeing the current product and seeing people like Shawn Michaels and Ted DiBiase support it has been noted by him.

      That and here’s the sad truth: retire in TNA and maybe get a few legacy t-shirt and DVD sales. Retire in WWE with a legends contract? Still get booked for signings, still get action figures made, still get asked to do interviews for new DVDs.”

      Throw in Bruno Sammartino who was strongly against WWE’s product before and you have valid reason for Sting to show up at Royal Rumble when his contract expires w/ TNA.

  • Jordan Meeks

    WWE is going to have to make Sting lose that gut of his and quit wearing a t-shirt in his matches if he’s going to be taken seriously.

    • Jesse

      Oh man… I’ve been wondering for a long time why others haven’t noticed this.

    • askbillmitchell

      Just like they made Tommy Dreamer?

      • Jordan Meeks

        Tommy Dreamer, as far as I can remember, always wore t-shirts. It was like his thing. Sting does it now to hide his gut because he’s old and out of shape. Honestly, Sting just needs to retire. I watched a recent match of him with Matt Morgan and it was beyond boring. The guy just can’t go like he used to.

        • askbillmitchell

          Relax it was just a quip. :)

    • AVPredator4985

      I think he would for this

  • Stephen

    Again, Sting vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania is a waste because Sting will not win. Sting has to beat the Undertaker at Survivor Series, and then again at the Royal Rumble, so that The Undertaker challenges Sting to a match at the one event he knows he can’t lose at: WrestleMania.

    • Andrew “The Raven” Outlaw

      Undertaker said it himself that he doesn’t want the streak to b intact when he retires

      • Stephen

        And that may be, but Sting will not be the man who breaks it. Undertaker wants what’s best for the business, and that’s not it. John Cena, Sheamus, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt are people who could break it, but not Sting.
        But Sting beat Undertaker a few times prior to WrestleMania, then it would seem more possible, maybe even to me.

  • Steven Harris

    I’d love it to happen, even if it’s only a one match deal i’d love it to happen. Will it, I doubt it.

  • Steven Harris

    I’d love it to happen, even if it’s only a one match deal i’d love it to happen. Will it, I doubt it.

  • Progressed_Now

    lol dream on, just more hollow hype.

  • Peer Pressure

    Sting is a brokendown old man. I don’t want to see him fight Taker anymore. Both men are way past their prime.

    • Paul Kersey

      Those “broken down old men” would steal the show at WM. Let’s face it – take away the part timers of the past, and WM is just a glorified Raw show that costs $50+ to watch.

      • Peer Pressure

        I know, bro. WWE just doesn’t have any legit young stars, that are worth watching. They have to rely on old men, that are well past their prime to sell WM tickets. To be honest, I’m getting sick of some of these old guys.
        I thought they were gonna do something with Ryback, but thsy failed with him also.

  • EMPunk

    If Sting signs on… bring him in for Survivor Series or Royal Rumble debut. Win some matches – job out guys like Jericho, Kane, Henry, etc. – set up Sting to challenge Taker at WM 30.
    Easy peasy.

  • Paul Kersey

    Sting’s career will be incomplete without competing at Wrestlemania. He knows it. It will happen. Plus, the Wrestlemania payday, Legends deal, and HOF induction are nice too.

  • raven

    this is BS clap clap clap this is BS clap clap clap
    sting will never be seen in a wwe ring.

    • askbillmitchell

      He’s already been seen in a WWE ring.

      • Drmgiver

        He has NEVER been in a WWE ring.

        • askbillmitchell

          Yeah he was. :-D He has just never been under contract with the WWE.

          • AVPredator4985

            He was in a WCW ring. Doesn’t count (even if the WWE technically owns his WCW career)

          • askbillmitchell

            WCW >> WWE Bought WCW >>> All assets that were owned by Time Warner were acquired by WWE. A ring is an asset. Translation it was a WWE ring. Just deal with it, he was in fact inside a WWE ring, he just has never signed a WWE contract. It’s not a difficult concept to grasp.

          • askbillmitchell

            Fine, then Sting doesn’t go into the Hall of Fame. Since it’s a WWE Hall of Fame and even if WWE owns WCW, Sting doesn’t get in period because Sting was never in a WWE ring. Even though if you watch the WWE produced DVD from a couple of years ago. Many have gone on record, to say the last Nitro WAS a WWE produced show. WWE was calling the shots, and WWE owned the company by that point. But okay. we’ll have it YOUR way and just block Sting from going into the HoF. Sounds legit.

      • raven

        wrong

        • askbillmitchell

          Right. :-) It might be a matter of semantics but it’s still true. He was performing at a WWE ran show, there for it became WWE’s ring by proxy. Sting has been inside of a WWE ring, he did wrestle Ric Flair on a WWE show, he just has to date never signed a WWE contract.

          • AVPredator4985

            It was still WCW. Even if Vince had control

          • askbillmitchell

            No it was a WWE ring, once WWE bought it. :-D That’s how ownership works.

          • raven

            no it was on wcw nitro, on a wcw tv deal, on wcw money, on wcw contracts, in a wcw ring

          • askbillmitchell

            WCW was purchased by who again? I forget… When you find out let me know because it bugs me that I can’t recall it, I know I should know it but my mind draws a blank.

          • Daniel Tilson

            The deal was set to finalize after the end of the final WCW Nitro. This is how corporate ownership stuff works. Money changes hands, and then there is a lot of waiting for the deal to be official, and then there is chaos when the new management takes over. It is not final until the agreed upon time.

            The fact that Turner and Mcmahon worked together on the last episode so that Mcmahon could work it into a storyline does not mean that Mcmahon was actually in control of WCW at that time.

            Sting takes a great amount of pride in being one of the only big names in wrestling to have never worked for Vince Mcmahon, I can’t see him giving that up.

          • askbillmitchell

            The deal was signed prior to Nitro like practically the week before. Again, the show was a WWE show. Sting was getting his marching orders from WWE not WCW, he went out there on a WWE controlled show, did his thing. All one can actually say is that he has never been signed to a WWE contract. Which I’ve stipulated many times, stipulated NOT disputed. The evidence you need to prove that Sting was in a WWE ring is by watching the Rise and Fall of WCW – people are on video telling you hey WWE’s people came in took control, it was a WWE ran show.

          • raven

            wcw was purchased by wwf/wwe
            so pepsi sells to coke and coke continues the line, is that pepsi can now coke?
            your logic doesn’t work anyway you try to spin it.

          • askbillmitchell

            If Pepsi sells to Coke, Pepsi then becomes a Coke product and those who worked for Pepsi now works for Coke. Just like when WWE bought WCW, those that once worked for WCW now technically worked for WWE because WCW became a WWE product.

            Thank you for proving my point. Regardless if you intended to or not, you just did. Thanks :)

          • raven

            SO whatever name is on the book is what’s inside?
            thanks for proving your stupidity.
            I have a mansion behind my house i’ll give you for real cheap. don’t mind that it looks like a pissed on box..it says mansion on it.

            and time frame has nothing to do with it either right?
            I mean shane o’mac is on screen 3minutes after wcw ended so that whole show was a wwf show?.. I mean do you read what you type???

          • askbillmitchell

            The whole show was a WWE show because WWE show was produced by WWE producers who were employed by the WWE. Just because the ring said WCW is irrelevant.

  • Reality

    He waited to have his fat belly to make to move… *sigh*
    Well I just hope he doesn’t wrestle Taker at Mania, the match wouldn’t live to the hypes and it needs to remain fantasy.
    Anyway, the guy needs to be in the HoF.

  • Michael Jobe

    Pretty sure this gets posted every year.

  • WrestlingNerd

    At this point, John Cena vs. Undertaker at WM30 would be more appropriate than a Sting vs. Undertaker match. I’d rather see Cena and Taker go at it. Still hoping that Sting can contribute in some other capacity though.

    • Cronion2415

      Yea right lol…. You know you wanna see Sting vs. Undertaker….

      • WrestlingNerd

        I do, but John Cena vs. Undertaker HAS to happen. It makes too much sense. The biggest name in wrestling for the last 10 years versus the most respected name in wrestling history. I do wanna see Sting vs. Taker, but if Taker only has one match left in him, it should be with Cena. If he can do 2 more, Cena and Sting are exactly who they should be against.

  • Michael Jobe

    Hey SESCOOPS don’t yall always bite the bait for the “Sting to WWE” crap every year. Post something when yall get true confirmations.

  • Jamie

    Sounds pretty fake.

  • Drmgiver

    Get a grip folks, it isn’t happening. I bought into it during the whole wood cabin thing, but no it isn’t happening.

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Sting and Taker could still have an outstanding match, if they were to face at WM. The hype, promos, storytelling would be extremely engaging.

    It’s just just been teased too many times to get super excited about it at this point.

    • Andrew “The Raven” Outlaw

      maybe the 2/21/11 videos again?

  • Guest

    I can see this happening now esp with the pg way of wwe and the more adult wa tna are , also I would see it being stings last match then he will get hall of fame and a nice DVD box set as wwe own all of his matches with wcw now. I think if you wanna retire you want your legacy remembered and that may not happen if he stays in tna plus he would get a nice pay packet

  • Eugene

    Even if this does get posted every year it certainly gets us all talking doesn’t it. I don’t care if we are wasting our breath on the matter because it’s something atleast 95% of wrestling fans want. Sting vs Taker at Mania would have to be the match up that comes from it if Sting does make it to the WWE, otherwise i don’t see the point of it. Sting/Angle/Goldberg who I want to see back in the WWE.

    If Takers streak has to come to an end (which I think shouldn’t) then i’d like it to be to Angle, but that’s just my choice.

  • beatskeetskeet

    I can imagine what kind of debauchery Vince has to do to get Sting. He is already sucking off The Rock for what its worth.

  • Macho Stud

    He’s scared of the Undertaker and being outperformed by him. He knows that the Undertaker is better than him in the ring, and he will be schooled like a 10 yr old boy. You think that’s white paint on Sting’s face? No! The mere thought of being in the ring with the Phenom makes him look that way. Sting thinks about it every day, and it scares him straight.

    • Donte Shoshona Gopual

      lol you make it seem so fun i wish it was “STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT” lol jk

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      You’re out of your mind if you actually believe that crap.

      • X

        That dude is sarcastic with almost everything he posts…. I can’t believe you couldn’t see through that $hit… You wrestling nerds are uptight and corny as FOCK! Lmao

        • Bushwald Sexyface

          Hence the “if you actually believe that” part. Reading comprehension isn’t a strong suite of yours, is it?

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    Sting said his contract doesn’t expire until January, so we’ll have to see what happens. As much as I would love to see Sting wrestle in the WWE, I think Sting should stay and finish his career in TNA. I don’t want to see Sting make his WWE debut and face the Undertaker at WrestleMania, and lose. If Sting still wrestles in 2014, it will be with TNA, because he seems comfortable with the schedule and brand. Plus when Sting does retires, his legacy should be remembered as the only top guy in WCW to never step foot in a WWE ring; that would be a good resume.

    Still, 2014 is a long way, so who knows what’s going to happen.

    • Cronion2415

      How is that a good resume? WWF/E Changed and made professional wrestling to what it is today…. He needs to be in a WWE ring, I’ve been waiting for this since 2001!!!!

      • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

        I think it be a good example for other upcoming wrestlers to know that they don’t have to go to the WWE to become a superstar, or to become more famous.

    • askbillmitchell

      I think if Sting really wanted to do this, I think Dixie would let him out of his contract if the WWE were serious about signing him. Yes, she might not like to but she would because she knows what he means to this industry and I don’t think she would do something to intentionally screw Sting financially. Her wrestling organization? Absolutely, Sting? I doubt it.

    • askbillmitchell

      BTW Sting stepped foot inside a WWE ring, the night at Panama City. Its just best to say he’s the only top WCW guy to never sign a contract with the WWE.

      • Drmgiver

        That ring still had WCW written on it, sorry to burst your bubble.

        • askbillmitchell

          The company was owned by WWE. Ownership is 9 tenths of the law, hate to burst your bubble. Yes he was inside of a WWE ring, no he was never under contract with the WWE. Two entirely different distinctions.

      • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

        Technically it was a WCW ring, and the last Nitro aired on TNT.

        • askbillmitchell

          *sigh* I’ve already addressed this.

  • WCWPunk

    There’s still alot of time between now and January. I know Dixie Carter will be pushing hard to get Sting to sign for another one year contract. As for Sting he has nothing left to prove except running the same wheel and same rehashed storylines in TNA. An appearance from Sting in WWE is long overdue. Plus can you imagine the amount of exposure Sting would get, especially if he wrestled at Wrestlemania?! OMG Many of us want to see this happen. Only time will tell for sure.

    • WCWPunk

      The only problem is, after being let down from the 3 21 11 promo, this is something I refuse to believe until his face actually appears on WWE television and no we’re not talking about old WCW footage.

      • Progressed_Now

        as I understand that was your own fault. noone ever implied that it was Sting. you jumped to conclusions all on your own.

        • WCWPunk

          Thank you! :) Which is why after reading this article, I’m not jumping to conclusions Happy 4th of July!! ;)

  • DEX

    I want to see Undertaker get into a feud with Fandango! Undertaker and Michelle McCool vs. Fandango and Summer Rae in a mixed tag match main event prior to WrestleMania 30!

  • Komixfrk75

    I can see this happening….Considering he felt a little insulted when TNA put him in their Hall of Fame. He was quoted as saying it felt like they were putting him out to pasture. A one year run in WWE would be a perfect ending to his career

  • Kickass

    Do it Man Do It

  • 1stMatchISawIN1986

    As mush as I like Sting.. I hate to say it but at this time in his career it would be pointless to join WWE. If all they are going to do is use him for vs. Undertaker. Not worth it. Sting has had a great career by joining the WWE all it does is say “Yes we truly own you” Lets face it sooner or later Undertaker is going to retire and so will Sting. The reason why Rock came back to the WWE is so the can put him into the “Hall of Fame” same thing with Brock.

  • TDR25_Forever

    Please people can we PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let this one go?!!! Sting is well into his 50’s and his last great match was quite a few years ago when he FIRST walked into the doors of TNA wrestling. If he didn’t sign with WWE for various reasons when he could still put on a decent match, why do so now? Is WWE in that much a need for big name stars that their willing to sign a childhood hero from the late 80’s-mid 90’s?

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Sting is the one that contacted them. And they would be stupid to not capatalize on it while they still could. Taker/Sting at WM 30 would be a huge draw. Massive. And it would be a perfect way to put a bow on Sting’s career.
