The icon, Sting’s, WWE debut brought with it many questions that WWE fans wanted answered last night on Monday Night Raw. Unfortunately, nearly none of them were answered. In fact, Sting didn’t even show up to Raw. He wasn’t expected to, but Raw‘s ratings increased because of the aftermath that Sting began. He was on screen for about five minutes and changed the dynamic of WWE for the foreseeable future.
Earlier in the day, the Inquisitr updated on the Sting situation as far as who his opponent will likely be down the road. Right now, Triple and the Undertaker are the two people that will likely face Sting at the Royal Rumble and/or WrestleMania 31.
Since then, new information has already surfaced about Sting’s contract and how he will be used going forward. According to E-Wrestling News, Sting may be the next Brock Lesnar, in terms of contract details.
Sting recently signed a performers contract with WWE. While the length of the agreement and specific details are not yet known, the deal is likely structured similar to Brock Lesnar’s, where he is getting paid a lot and is only required to make limited appearances.
While he almost certainly won’t be working live events, the feeling is that he will be wrestling more than just “one more match.”
As noted earlier, WWE reached out to Sting last Thursday to set up his Survivor Series appearance.
There you have it WWE Universe, Sting signed a Lesnar-type contract to win a title and never show up. Of course that’s only a joke, because Sting would never do such a thing. Winning a title at this age wouldn’t make any sense. He’s here to have a match or two and then get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Just like I mentioned earlier, everybody and their mother wanted Sting to appear in WWE. Thirteen years ago, the WCW invasion occurred and a lot of the WWE fanbase wanted Sting to come along with his WCW brethren. However, that wasn’t the case as Sting decided to not defect to Vince McMahon’s camp. Through the years, he became famous for solely not leaving TNA or WCW, among other things.
All of the credit in the world goes to Triple H and Vince McMahon for making this happen after so many years of failing. The dollar amount that Sting agreed to will not come out, so the guessing game will have to do for now. It goes to show that WWE’s business efforts do not go unnoticed. They brought in a legend that can now solidify his wrestling career in the industry’s top dog. Whether or not Sting shows up once a month, he is here to stay in the WWE.
