There is a rumor going around today that Sting has signed a WWE Legends deal with the company. Actually, negotiations are still going on and WWE feels confident that they will be able to reach a deal with Sting. One of the things I was told with this deal is that Sting would be working limited dates with the company (similar to Brock Lesnar) and the thing WWE wants is to have the “face” of WCW to help promote the WWE Network. WWE is hoping to have a deal done within the next 14 days.
As far as a possible match with Undertaker this year, that is not happening. It could happen at next year’s WrestleMania. Sting may still have a role at this years show though. As we reported previously, The Undertaker is scheduled to face Brock Lesnar at this years WrestleMania. One other thing that is being discussed in negotiations is what Sting feels comfortable doing especially at this stage in his career. Sting wants input on creative and wants to be able to protect his character.
