Sting Has NOT Signed With WWE, Details On Mystery ‘2/21/11’ Vignettes

  • Share

Buzz started making the rounds on Monday’s edition of RAW regarding the two 2/21/11 vignettes that aired within the two-hour broadcast. Internet fans started immediately connecting the trench coat and the rain-filled vignette to Sting. However, according to sources, the whole plan all along was for the vignette to be hyping the return of the Undertaker, presumably on the February 21st edition of RAW. In fact, the arena that is hosting RAW that night recently spoiled the Undertaker’s return by releasing a video package, hyping his return. After fans viewed the video and it spoiling his return, the video was quickly taken down, likely by the request of WWE.

Shortly after the rumors by fans that Sting’s return was connected to the vignette, Vince McMahon apparently reached out to Sting to sign a contract. It should be noted that Vince McMahon usually looks down on Internet reports, but upon releasing the vignettes and the potential buzz it may bring to WrestleMania, don’t be surprised to see much more vague vignettes in the coming weeks.

As for Sting signing with WWE, he remains very loyal to TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter, and as of right now, not signed to either her company or WWE. The New York Daily News, however, went as far as saying that Sting signed with the company. Here is their report: King’s Court – By King Jordan: Steve Borden (AKA Sting), 51, reportedly has signed on to a one-year agreement with the WWE. Sting, who last wrestled for TNA and WCW, has never wrestled for Vince McMahon and the WWE. Rumors have him debuting Feb. 21.. According to our sources, he has yet to sign a deal with the company, though.

Kevin Nash, who returned to WWE Sunday night and is set to sign a contract with the company today, is apparently telling those backstage within WWE to sign him to the company. Sting, of course, has never signed a contract with Vince McMahon and remains rather leery of him. It should be interesting to see if he indeed decides to sign with TNA or WWE, or decides not to go anywhere.

    The video was taken down at WWE’s request? Why was the video voiced by the guy who voices EVERY promo for the company?! It was WWE made! And distributed online!!! WWE are really throwing us, and working us good. Taker returns, and when we think it’s all said and done, Sting makes him debut. Great stuff.

    Sting and Nash are pretty friendly, so at the very least if Nash is pushing for him behind the scenes it’s a good bet Sting is open to the idea- if not Nash wouldn’t waste his time
