Breaking News: Sting Appears On WWE’s Network

Well, this is going to get everyone talking. Sting appeared in the first part of the Ultimate Warrior Week special that aired tonight, talking about his memories of the Ultimate Warrior. In the interview, he talks about training with Warrior and said that the late Hall of Famer used to put tuna fish and orange juice in a blender and tell him that he was getting his Warrior dose of protein & Vitamin C.

This is Sting’s first-ever appearance for WWE in any capacity. As you likely know if you’ve been paying attention to news, there has been a ton of speculation about Sting’s potential WWE signing, with recent reports saying he had a contract offer but had not signed it yet. This could indicate that he has signed, or it could conceivably be a one-off appearance in honor of his early tag team partner.

We reported over the weekend that Sting hadn’t signed his WWE contract but is expected to at any point. As noted, the deal is done “in principle” and has been for a while; it is now just a matter of pen hitting paper.

Also and to few people’s surprise, that the belief is he will not be wrestling on a regular basis.

    ummm sting first appeared on wwe tv as part of wwf : wcw monday nitro live on tnt and usa network. so in a way it was already owned by the wwe at that point. now the wwe network spot tonight would be his first wwe contracted appearence, but not first ever wwe appearence

      Accctually..it was..the Sting/flair match appeared exclusively on TNT..at that point was still on WCW (turners dime) ..That episode of Nitro was still under Turners ownership..but part of the deal was Vince could come on and announce the sale

    From what I've read, and am hoping for, Sting may not be wrestling now since Taker may be retired physically now. I expected to see Sting in this capacity and possibly a GM role on one of the shows.

    I still wouldn't be surprised if this was a "one off" for UW, and we see Sting elsewhere soon. The Stinger never shows his hand until it's time to the lay the cards down.

    • Ha Hork says:

      Sting is a traitor and back stabber. Let’s hope WWE jobs him out.

      • Peckar says:

        Grow up. He's worth more than the $1.20 TNA pay there talent now.

      • jbcissom says:

        What is there left for Sting to do in TNA? What is the left for AJ Styles to do in TNA? These two guys have had some pretty good programs, and there was even a passing of the torch, but the creative team screwed that up.

        I would rather Sting go to WWE, open a spot for a younger guy in TNA, and a future star be made. TNA really wasn't using him at an optimum level IMO. Plus now, if he has signed, all the real Sting fans can get that career DVD… you know, a real one. Sorry, but Goldberg, Batista, and certain others really shouldn't be getting career DVDs.

        • fritiz1 says:

          I hope when WWE puts out there DVD TNA puts one out as well to give a full view of his career. I know TNA did one but that was so early in his run it hardly covered much.

        Relax guys – he's kidding.

    Sting in the WWE would not make sense anymore. The wwe as stupid as it already is dropped the ball on Sting. If he is still around it would make better sense if he was in GFW

  4. DJBIGCG says:

    Sting may not wrestle on a regular in wwe, but I'm pretty sure he will wrestle at least one match in wwe

  5. JoeWrestling says:

    He's confirmed signed except for the part of signing with a pen. I saw Zack Ryder in a drive through at McDonalds, not confirmed yet if he's taken a job working at McDonalds. To mosts surprise, it's belief that he won't be making the burgers. In principle he works there now, just a matter of putting pen to employment application.

  6. fritiz1 says:

    Not really a big deal. Sting filmed his comments at home then sent them to the WWE. Could be just a free agent paying tribute to a guy he broke into the business with. Wouldn't it be funny if the "confirmed" contract Sting has with WWE was simply for this?

  7. DarkNexxus says:

    Whatever Sting ends up doing is fine by me, as long as it's fine by him. He's entertained us for a very long time. Now it's time for him to think of what is best for Sting.

    Sting talking about the Ultimate Warrior, well duh.. How many times has Sting stated they started out together in this business. For WWE, not to get the Stinger's comments on Warrior would have been dumb.

  8. WWEsucksbigtime says:

    I saw Sting and UW before they were famous. They were a damned good team together. They made a lot of rookie mistakes but they learned from them. They were, contrary to some thought, were best of friends. i got the joy of meeting UW and man he was impressive. It would have been wrong NOT to have Sting in the documentary.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      so you obviously have no idea what youre talking about..considering both Sting and UW have stated that that were not very close, and have not kept in real contact since they split up..but yes..ill believe what you have to say

    • The Broodwich says:

      Yeah. Right. I was best friends with Ric Flair back in the day. Yup. He used to come over, wash my car, and then screw my wife. Vince McMahon would come over to watch and cheer him on, occasionally.

  9. Get_Carter says:

    Sting's "interview" was less than 20 seconds. Not exactly an interview, more of a reminiscence.
