Latest Backstage News On Sting’s WWE Status

Posted by Matt Boone March 27, 2014 13 Comments

The working idea right now in WWE as it pertains to Sting is that he will do one match and then retire from in-ring competition. As of right now, everyone seems to be under the impression that the one match will be against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara. Sting has reportedly been studying tapes of Undertaker matches, leading many to believe that he is under a similar belief.

Whether the idea for this match is made clear at WrestleMania, RAW the next night or at some point closer to the actual show is unknown. As of right now, the only thing that seems to be for sure is that Sting will only be doing one last match, likely against Undertaker.

As far as his contractual status with WWE, nobody has confirmed that he has actually signed at this point, although the feeling seems to be that it’s an inevitability.

      I dunno I think Sting said he didn’t just want to be used in one match and lose. There is no reason for him to end the streak because he has nothing else to prove IF someone does end it let it be a young guy to give him a push. So if it is the Undertaker it would probably be the RAW after Wrestlemania. Of course then it wouldn’t be fair for him to just wrestle one match and win then be done in WWE. I personally hope he never sets foot inside a WWE ring or work for Fat Cat Vinnie Mac so he has that accomplishment of a big star and not working for Vince or WWE.

        he just can’t give up his spot like Hogan/flair and batista.

        The only way to get a push off of beating Taker at Mania isn’t to actually break the streak. A 2 out of 3 falls match is the only way as someone could get a pinfall and still lose the match but come out red hot for it. Otherwise, you’d be hated for the rest of your career as the guy who effed up the streak.

          True that would be the way to do it. That way JBL could hype him up by saying the only guy to ever get a pinfall/submission on The Undertaker at wrestlemania. I’d rather JBL use that than Cole or King as he is the better announcer out there IMO.

          Excuse me good sir, but why aren’t you working for wwe creative?

          • Not Chris Jericho

            Trust me, that’d be a dream come true.

    • Brandon Roberts

      eh they could use him as a gm or announcer like with all washed up wrestlers no offense to sting

    • Dan Pedreyra

      Same comment and they bs’d a WM31 “possibility”….you marks dont know shit so stop w the “Backstage News.” If any of you got backstage I see restraining orders.

    • Kris Godwin

      Jesus, if they announce Undertaker vs Sting for WM 31 in the RAW after ‘Mania…

      I will mark out like I’ve never marked out in my life. Just imagine that crowd reaction!

    • Big c

      I hate the idea of 1 match and go, he does not deserve to semi headline any wwe ppv much less wm. No dues paid in wwe whatsoever 3-6 month run or no thanks go back to tna.
