Even with The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar headlining WWE SummerSlam in a few weeks, and the show being pushed to four hours, all of the rumors and talk is elsewhere. Everyone wants to know what Sting is going to do, when he will return to WWE television, and how he is going to fit into the whole event. Lately, you need a scorecard to keep up with the Sting rumors, so here are the three ways and matches he could end up in at SummerSlam.
Many may be confused as to how the rumors can be so different from each other regarding Sting, and that’s easy. WWE wants it to be that way.
When Sting returns — if he does for SummerSlam — then they would want it to be a huge deal and as much of a surprise as possible. They don’t want many people to know about it beforehand so it can be a shocking twist and something no one saw coming.
Now, though, Sting’s involvement at SummerSlam appears as if it will go one of three ways.
1. Sting, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns vs. The Wyatt Family
This is the rumor that has been flying around the most and it makes some sense, but is also something that appears just kind of thrown together. There are three episodes of Monday Night Raw and three of SmackDown before the PPV for all of this to come together.
The Wyatt Family would need to bring on a third family member which is rumored to be Bo Dallas, Leo Kruger aka Adam Rose, or both. That would then, in turn, have Ambrose and Reigns acquire the services of Sting to even the odds.
2. Sting and Stephen Amell of Arrow vs. Stardust and The Miz
The feud between Amell and Stardust has been ongoing and building for a few months now, and keeps on going. Lately, Stardust has riled everything up again, and he’s even gotten The Miz involved at times to take his side.
As Cageside Seats reported, Amell (Green Arrow) could get Sting to join him as a pair of vigilantes to fight the bad guys. It could also go that Sting teams with Neville against Miz and Stardust, and Amell would be in the corner of the babyfaces.
3. Sting isn’t even on the SummerSlam card and doesn’t have a match
With each week that passes, this scenario is becoming more and more likely. Sting may not end up wrestling at SummerSlam at all, and those other feuds could go in entirely different directions or use the players already involved.
When the first official SummerSlam poster came out, Sting was noticeably absent. It had been reported that Sting had already been a part of some promotional material shoots, but that could have just been for the “Ultimate SummerSlam Experience” that he will be a part of as a meet-and-greet.
SummerSlam is going to be a big one for WWE, and that is obvious with the new four-hour run-time for the event. Will Sting be there? Well, he’ll certainly be at the big experience event, but he may not end up in the ring at all. Then again, he could.
