    Sting Negotiating w/ WWE; Hogan Signed?

    Post by StylesClash on Thu Jan 16, 2014 1:49 pm

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter via Gerweck.Net wrote:WWE has entered into discussions with wrestling icon Sting, who has yet to renew his TNA deal.

    The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE hall of famer Hulk Hogan also reached a verbal deal to return to the company this past week. Hogan won’t be at a match at WrestleMania 30, at least as things stand now (Hogan can’t pass the physical). Hogan will be around for WrestleMania weekend and be part of the show in some capacity.

    I'm kind of mixed on the idea of Sting in the WWE...he's held out for so long that I'd hate to see him go for just one big match against Taker (presumably). However, I think he deserves to be in the WWE HOF, and TNA is not doing much for him and they could use his money elsewhere...It'll just be sad to see it happen after so long of saying No, but the idea of finishing in front of tens of thousands has to be appealing versus 2,000-3,000 max for TNA.

    As far as Hogan, I'm not surprised. I wouldn't be surprised to see him come out at WM and "Hulk Up" one last time against someone like 3MB, it wouldn't surprise me at all

    They've been trying to get Sting for years, this might be the year he actually signs though. Wonder what they would do with him though. And what he would do with his shirt.

    I want Sting to sign WWE just so everyone can shut up about whether or not Sting will ever sign with WWE.

    Plus the possibility of a Sting DVD that could actually show the majority of his career (at least from its Start up until the end of WCW)

    Sting should stay in TNA where I don't have to watch him.

    I feel like Billy Gunn wrestling in a t-shirt the past few weeks is foreshadowing. Just like Cena's red and yellow boxers.

    Yeah I was game for a Taker/Sting match a few years back because the other option was Taker/HHH but I would pass on it this year, and that leaves the question, who the fuck would he wrestle and why?

    Maybe he can be vince's guy to take on HHH and that midcarder CM Punk can get knocked back down to the pre show battle royal or something

    Yeah... the problem is that he just doesn't have an appealing feud with anyone. He can't go like he used to. If the E was willing to offer him enough money to make one final huge push to get in the best shape possible, MAYBE. I'd mark for even a mediocre Taker vs Sting match. The problem is - as it has always been - that sting doesn't want to just come in and put people over and the only people it makes sense to have him beat are probably not wild about jobbing to a shirt wearing, long past his prime, sting. It is just so hard to book him.

    All they need to do is come up with one good storyline that Sting will agree to, give him 6 months on WWE programing, make a sting DVD, a few figures, a clever t-shirt, and put him in the hall of fame next year and it will be way worth the investment.

    The boat has sailed for me on Sting in WWE. As mentioned, who would he work with? No one wants to see Sting/Taker anymore. Too little too late for me.

    I want it to happen at some point just for the DVD. Honestly, if he just signed to enter the Hall of Fame and get a DVD I would be fine.

    TNA spoilz but they wrote him off next week. This could be getting real.

    Well, if RVD's return is any indication, WWE could certainly pull a miracle in making Sting feel like a major star again even after TNA killed most of his starpower.

    Sting would obviously have to be motivated in getting into great shape for a big run though, much like RVD was after coasting in TNA for years.

    As for who Sting would actually wrestle though is a mystery to me. Him vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania is obviously out of the question, and since Taker doesn't work much aside from WM these days, I doubt it might happen ever.

    A Hall Of Fame induction and DVD & merchandise deal is certainly good enough, but it does seem like WWE would want to use Sting in the ring, if only for a brief run or select appearances. I say throw him out for a surprise appearance, ala Heath Slater vs. the WWE Legends, and gauge things from there.

    I read a while back that Sting only really wants to work with BIG names, excluding even the likes of CM Punk. Punk seems to me the most logical choice for a short run. Punk is over enough to where he doesn't need to win everything, good enough to make sure everything goes ok in the ring, and creative enough to keep just about any feud interesting. He could go one on one with sting 2-3 times just to give him a small run and at least one really solid match. If Sting is in great shape at the end of it maybe they could take a swing with HHH vs Sting.

    Still very conflicted here...

    There are a few people in the E i want to see Sting face (Taker, Punk, Danielson) Tho I still hold to my hopes that he never appears on their programming.

    If he enters the WWE Hall of Shame, I will be sick. He deserves to be in considering everyone else that is, but For someone to enter that joke of a hall of fame that has never appeared on a show seems ludicris. I hate the Warrior accepted. Savage would have refused if he were Around. Owen's Family will not let it happen. WE NEED MORE HOLD OUTS.

    a short term deal for Sting with WWE is what I would love, the pop he'll get in WWE will be amazing for a short time, a match with Undertaker, a DVD, go into the hall of fame, ride off into the sunset, the end.
