Latest News On Sting Signing A Deal With WWE; Is His Arrival A High Priority For The Company?



sting

WWE has been working on concepts for Sting t-shirts pushing the theme of calling him “A Man Called Sting” since WCW trademarked the phrase and WWE owns the intellectual property rights to it. A memo came in to WWE’s merchandise department last week to start working on the ideas for Sting.

Regarding Sting signing a deal, as of Monday the word is that he has not signed but is very close. As PWMania.com reported, RF Video’s Rob Feinstein mentioned on Facebook that Sting has signed a deal with WWE within the last couple of days.

Another source noted that internally, the idea of Sting coming in has not been talked about as a high priority issue compared to deals to get names like Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar, Batista or The Rock.

  • James Humwood

    considering sting is a better wrestler than all 4 of them he should be high priority

    • Raihan Khan

      sting is better than brock? really?

      • James Humwood

        as a WRESTLER yes sting can go longer matches and have good technical matches show me one match that brock had since hes been back that doesnt involve no dq

        • Raihan Khan

          hell no, brock is fast, powerfull heavy, he has everything

          • James Humwood

            his matchs last 10 seconds hes got no mic skills and cant wrestle i mean dont get me wrong he was an impressive mma/ufc fighter but as a wwe wrestler he cant wrestle a match without it having a stipulation

          • Raihan Khan

            10 sec? wake up, his matches last more than 20 min, dont count the his match with big show, this is stupid, sorry to say. look at his mathes since 2012, not counting his match against bigshow

          • James Humwood

            oh look they were all no dq shocking i dont hate lesnar but he isnt a wrestler hopefully he doesnt do something dumb and hurt taker on accident

          • Raihan Khan

            he is a wrestler thats why u said “hopefully he doesnt do something dumb and hurt taker on accident”. in real wrestling u get hurt, and lesnar cant handle storylines, its hard for him to handle the storylines.

          • James Humwood

            while i do agree real wrestlers you do get hurt im just saying if your looking at “fake wrestling” then sting is better he can handle storylines and do more “fake wrestling moves” i think me and you were tlking about different wrestling sorry i should of said when it comes to wwe wrestling or something

          • George Solorio

            You all do know that Brock has amateur wrestling background and his first run was filled with technical matches with Guerrero, Kurt Angle, Undertaker, Rock, ETC. He main evented a stacked Wrestlemania card that had Hogan. Austin, Rock, & HBK on it. And he did it with Kurt Angle & they had a “wrestling” match. Some of you need to do homework.

          • James Humwood

            everyone know that hell even i know that but since lesnar has been away for 10 years he aint as good as he once was

          • Raihan Khan

            he is more better thn ever, he was never that dominant than he is now, if u still dis agree then i have nothing else to say

          • James Humwood

            you do realize thats storyline writing making him dominant but sigh whatever its just an opinion no need to get fussy over it i respect ur opinions you should repect mine

          • Raihan Khan

            even i dont like lesnar haters by the way, cz eveyone likes him, i mean all want to see him wrestle, most people i would say

          • James Humwood

            dont give me wrong i like seeing him wrestle i like where his character is heading its just i think in my personal opinion sting is a better Professional wrestler. lesnar is a better fighter and more dominiant yes but when i think of wrestlers i dont think of cena or any big guy i think of cm punk and daniel bryan who are very technical and diverse much like how sting was back in his prime

          • Austin Shaw

            to all of you, yeah i like brock but honestly… he doesnt wrestle on raw, EVER. His matches are not too long, and when they are theyre no longer than 20 and theyre only at ppvs. brock had a total of what 4 matches in 2013 being at WM, Extreme Rules, Payback, and Summerslam. Honestly, brock does not have the gas tank he did. Sting yes is very old but he can still wrestle as long as brock if not longer!

          • James Humwood

            austin thank you thats what i was trying to say you made it sound better thats for sure lol

          • Austin Shaw

            Anytime man

          • Guest

            I don’t care what anybody says about Brock Lesnar. He is just an egotistical meat head. He sucks on the mic and if it wasn’t for Mr. Paul (Walrus Twinkietits) Heymen Lesnar wouldn’t even be in the WWE, because he can’t talk or do anything for himself. He knew as well as the creative team did that he couldn’t beat The Big Show unless he broke about 5 chairs over his almost 500 Lb. Carcass. I’m even from Minnesota like Lesnar is, but I not a Lesnar fan and doubt I’ll ever be one. Now as far as the matches he had in 2013 Cena beat him, Punk beat him. HHH would’ve beat him if Heyman wouldn’t of gotten into the ring to low ball HHH. Lesnar is a fighter, not a professional wrestler by all means. He was a damn good Wrestler for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, a damn good fighter for the MMA/UFC, but sucks as an actor and a professional wrestler. When he does talk he sounds like a little pussy, Mysterio sounds more manly then Lesnar does. Lesnar’s wrestling days are done, is only still trying to make a name for himself because he is totally done strength wise & health wise in the MMA/UFC. On a final note, Lesnar looked better in a Minnesota Viking Jersey then he ever has in professional wrestling, but even though he had his little moment with the Vikings he couldn’t play football either. Lesnar is a Fat ass meathead with a big body, but his head is still big for his body…lol

          • James Humwood

            nice to see ppl get what im saying

          • samwich

            MAY I HAVE SOME DECORAM PLEASE!

            You are all subject to some false quotations and need to re-evaluate your opinions because… i’m afraid i have some bad news!

            Kinda cute how you’re all quick to judge Sting on his wrestling skills when there are people like Ryback etc.. who simply CANNOT wrestle. For those comparing Lesnar to Sting.. isn’t it obvious that there is NO comparison. Lesnar is a powerhouse with a wrestling style that is completely different from a technically gifted Sting. If i see Sting do three consecutive powerbombs or lift a 500lb wrestler on my back and throw him off it.. THEN i will compare the two. But for now, Lesnar can go back to UFC and we’ll have Sting vs Taker at WMXXX. Thank you.

          • James Humwood

            im not sure what you were going with there but you had me at bad news i love bad news barrett lol

          • samwich

            My point is there shouldn’t be a comparison between Lesnar/Rock/Sting etc..

          • James Humwood

            i guess i see your
            point they all have different styles

          • BAYsCokeBudget

            Sting is still fucking terrible. Hes the reason i cant watch tna, he doesnt even leave the ground when he does a stinger splash anymore and his matches have been 5 minutes or less for 5 years. Batista sucks and cant go either, but the rock and brock are both more atheletic and have always been better wrestlers then stink.

          • James Humwood

            you gotta be talking about a different rock because the the rock i know cant go more than 5 minutes in a match without being gassed out

          • Raihan Khan

            tell me or show me a biggg match or show me atleast 100 matches which were longer than 20min, not counting the entrance , and if a match is way longer it becomes boring, why am i even talking ? specially with someone who doesnt know anything, people never complain abt lesnar, so i dont care ,

          • Austin Shaw

            Uhm hey buddy, Lesnar vs HHH at WM29 and Extreme Rules were both very long matches. Also Best vs Beast was atleast 25 minutes.

          • Raihan Khan

            and ur saying his matches r short, wow, nice , i hope u dont expect to see 40 min matches

          • Brad Evers

            I don’t care what anybody says about Brock Lesnar. He is just an egotistical meat head.

          • cj stolte

            Admittedly, I agree with most of this comment. Lesnar, circa 2011 and on, not worth the money to watch in ANY sport, but ya gotta admit, in the earlier years, particularly in his feud with Kurt Angle, they both really looked good.

        • Raihan Khan

          so what? he is powerful, devastating thats why his matches r no dq, and fun to watch

        • LOL

          yes, Sting is without any doubt a better wrestler than a former NCAA champion who then later became a UFC Heavyweight Champion.

          pleaseeeeeeeeeeee.

          • James Humwood

            why thanks for agreeing with me xD i know ur using sarcasm appaently ppl didnt listen to what i said in depth

      • Chad Eugene Rash

        YES

    • Medusa

      Sting and The Rock are kinda on the same level to me. The rest I don’t care about..

    • THE F’N ROCK

      than brock lesnar???

      • James Humwood

        im just saying if your talking lasting in longer matchs and having a good technical match then yes dont give me wrong lesnar could kill sting in real life.sting also has a more vast move set

    • cj stolte

      No, The Stinger, WAS a better wrestler. I’m as big a Sting fan as any, but when you end up in stiff matches, and you’re getting virtually put over by younger guys in what seems like pity props, and the crowd, amped up on adrenaline bcuz they haven’t seen you since the glory days, are chatting,”YOU STILL GOT IT!”, you’re done. Long gone are the days of Hulkamania, 4 Life, stylin n profiling, and It’s Showtime, Folks, without it looking like they should’ve hung em up yrs ago.

  • WWE RaZaR

    Now WWE just needs to get Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle back. Bye bye TNA!

    • James Humwood

      i agree 100% hell add samoa joe to the mix hes good :P

      • RVD4Life

        Joe sucks dude.. in ’05 and ’06 he was ok and had a few good matches..But I think he’s overrated

        • James Humwood

          thats cuz tna holds superstars back

          • RVD4Life

            Haha no. sure they might hold people back, that’s debatable. What they do in the ring is what translates to boring work. he’s just not as good as you want to believe he is. sorry

          • James Humwood

            well thanks for apoligizing what for idk but thanks

          • samwich

            Joe does not suck, he just doesn’t give a fuck anymore. And quite rightly so. If you were misused for 3-4 years wouldn’t you stop giving a fuck? He gets paid to go out there and have an average match. I’d be doing the same

          • RVD4Life

            Wow, Your ignorance amazes me.. One does not simply suck because he doesn’t care anymore. He just sucks because he sucks..

  • Ely Abrams

    They are all old and need to give up. Brock is strong that’s it the rock is popular and sting is a legend enough said.

  • Raihan Khan

    breaking news : wwe planning to make sting the gm manager of raw, it might happen, i think its great cz sting shouldnt wrestle at wm 30 cz the card is already filling up with rumors and it would be great if he returns as a heel and challenge hhh face to face and he tries to take over wwe

  • Ellis Chrischelle

    IF sting did come to wwe,,, and he ditched the crow look and re adopted the crew cut classic sting look,,, that would be sick!
