Regarding the latest with Sting, he was originally scheduled to appear on the January 31st iMPACT! taping in Orlando, Florida but at this point has not signed a new contract with TNA Wrestling. Dixie Carter is aware of the WWE rumors surrounding him and has stated that she would be “disappointed” if he jumped ship to Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment. She has told creative to create a storyline for Sting’s return.
Triple H is scheduled to return within a few weeks and is slated to appear at WrestleMania 27. The reason he hasn’t been brought back quicker is because he is not involved in the Elimination Chamber angle and obviously wouldn’t win, so WWE want his return to have a big impact. In terms of his role right now, he is continuing to learn all aspects of the business and has received praise at the dedication he is showing in trying to learn. It should be noted that after the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on the 20th, they would only have about six weeks of television to build a feud for him heading into the biggest WWE event of the year.
