Out of the dozens and dozens of rumors that have been flying around about WWE SummerSlam, the biggest and most confusing have been about the man known as Sting. He was scheduled to be in a match and then another match and then just appearing, but was then pulled from the card entirely. Now, with SummerSlam less than 24 hours away, will Sting end up on the show?
Sting did appear at the SummerSlam Experience fan event this week, and that was expected. It was well known that he was going to be there signing autographs, taking pictures, and meeting with the fans.
Well, as of Friday, Sting had officially finished up what he was scheduled to do for WWE this weekend and left town, per WrestleZone.
Sting left New York City on Friday as he actually had another appearance he was scheduled for this weekend. He was on the list of celebrities that would be at the Wizard World Comic Con in Chicago on Saturday, and he certainly did show up.

Now, Sting was in Chicago on Saturday, and did his appearance there, but there is something that a lot of people need to realize. Many believe that him leaving town and no longer being in New York means that there is no chance he will be at SummerSlam.
Not so fast.
Sting’s schedule at the Wizard World Comic Con included the hours of 11 a.m. through 3 p.m. That isn’t just enough time for him to get back to New York in time for SummerSlam, but he very well could have been back in time for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn at the Barclays on Saturday night.
The biggest rumor was that Sting was going to team up with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose to take on The Wyatt Family. It was expected that the Wyatts could get a third member, but that match didn’t happen either and remains a tag team match.
As per Wrestling Inc., Dean Ambrose was asked about whether or not Sting will still be involved in his match at SummerSlam. Ambrose gave a very simple answer, and just said, “I didn’t hear that.”
Ambrose did say that he “would hope that we see Sting in a WWE ring again.”
Fans may see him on Sunday, or maybe next month at Night of Champions. Just to finalize things, Sting is not scheduled to be back in New York this weekend, but nothing is 100 percent set in stone.
Will Sting end up at SummerSlam on Sunday night? Well, he is not going to be included in a match unless WWE makes a major change, but he could still get involved in the tag match or even the main event between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar. For now, there are just rumors, but anything is possible.
