Dave Meltzer noted during Saturday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Sting‘s WWE Legends Contract had expired several months ago. As a result, the company is no longer contractually obligated to sell his items.
It’s just like Brock Lesnar, who had his merch pulled from the website a few months after his contract expired in April. Typically, WWE has a timeframe of up to six months when WWE can continue to sell merchandise of wrestlers even after their contracts expire.
Meltzer did speculate that it is possible that Sting could show up in AEW although there’s been no word yet of that happening. He could work in some wrestler’s corner or just making a general PPV appearance.
