Sting has officially signed a new deal with the WWE, the first time he has ever signed a contract with the biggest professional wrestling company in the world. However, it is not a contract as a wrestler but a PR contract. However, according to an interview Sting conducted with Grantland on Thursday, he wants to wrestle one more match against The Undertaker at “Wrestlemania 31.”
The contract Sting signed was to appear in the WWE 2K15 videogame as well as work in other promotional areas with the WWE. In the interview, Sting said that he is “all in” and wants to participate in anything the WWE wants him to work on. Sting wrestled in the WCW and NWA his entire career until the WWE purchased them. After that, Sting sat out his contract and then signed with TNA Impact Wrestling.
Sting is the highest profile WCW star to never step foot in a WWE wrestling ring. That should change now. Sting said he is honored to get the WWE PR contract and is happy to be part of the WWE family in any capacity. He said that he wishes he had signed with WWE years ago, but said that Vince McMahon told him that they would one day work together, and that is now. He said he has one more match in him and that will be against Undertaker before he retires.
As for Vince McMahon, he fuelled the fire as well when it comes to Sting. After the promotional video for WWE 2K15 hit, McMahon went to Twitter. He simply showed the image of Sting looking at the camera at the end of the video and asked if art imitates life. It in no way indicates that Sting will wrestle in the WWE, but fans should take it to mean that McMahon is hinting that there might be more to the Sting deal than just a video game.
