On Monday’s Raw when they aired the WWE 2K15 commercial with Sting, they left the crowd mic’d because they were expecting a big pop for the announcement. What ended up happening was that they did get a big pop at first but then they booed when they realized that the commercial was for the videogame. The Sting merchandise on WWE.com had people thinking that he had signed a deal but that’s not the case. Apparently WWE feels that the Sting character trademarks from WCW is their intellectual property so they believe they have the rights to sell that merchandise. The feeling in WWE is that the Sting deal will get done and both sides are still working on getting a deal finalized.
Triple H hinted today during his sit down interview with Michael Cole that Sting would be coming.
In the 2K15 commercial they pushed the late 90s Sting. The late 80s and early 90s Sting will also be in the game. As noted earlier, the commercial cost 2K Sports $200,000 to make.
