What does Sting's absence from Monday Night Raw mean for his WWE career?

According to an Apr. 8 report from CagesideSeats.com, Sting's future in the WWE is in doubt now that The Undertaker's 21-match Wrestlemania streak is over.

Many WWE fans expected Sting to battle The Undertaker at next year's Wrestlemania, but that storyline doesn't make much sense now that pro wrestlering supporters know Brock Lesnar conquered the streak.

Sting, 55, is the most popular pro wrestler to have never competed under the WWE banner. Sting spent most of his wrestling career competing for TNA, but he recently became a free agent and signed on with the WWE.

WWE Universe was expecting Sting to make his WWE debut during the Apr. 7 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw in New Orleans. Hundreds of fans showed up wearing Sting masks and face paint, so excitement was in the air for his WWE debut.

Unfortunately for them, Sting was not in attendance.

What should the WWE do with Sting now that The Undertaker's streak is over?

For one, they could use him to help promote the WWE Network. The WWE could also have Sting fight Brock Lesnar at next year's Wrestlemania.

Sure that match doesn't have as much luster as a possible Sting vs Undertaker bout, but its still one that fans would want to see.

The WWE could also use Sting as a guest ref or host, even if he doesn't actually wrestle for the promotion. Time will tell how the situation plays out, and the only way for WWE fans to find out what happens is by tuning in to WWE programming in the days and weeks ahead.
