WWE news: Sting to make appearance at SummerSlam 2014

According to an Aug. 17 report from KDramaStars.com, Sting will be making a guest appearance during the WWE SummerSlam 2014 pay-per-view spectacular at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Sting, the most popular pro wrestler to have never competed under the WWE banner, was reportedly spotted backstage at the event, just hours prior to the main card going live.

Sting, 55, was part of a SummerSlam panel over the weekend, and he has been working with the WWE for several months now. However, he has not yet appeared inside the ring at a WWE event. By the afternoon of Aug. 17, rumors were swirling that Sting would show up inside the ring following Brock Lesnar's SummerSlam match with John Cena, to challenge the winner.

If that were to happen, it would set up what could be one of the greatest Wrestlemania matches of all-time. Sting vs. Lesnar would be a huge match, but so would a bout between him and Cena. Sting is a legend pro wrestler, and WWE Universe has been waiting for what seems like forever to see him compete under the WWE banner.

At age 55, Sting doesn't have much time left in the sport. He is well past his athletic prime, but he can still turn in solid performances inside the ring. Sting was originally rumored to take on The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31, but Lesnar or Cena would make for interesting options if "The Deadman" isn't able to compete.

Will Sting show up at the Staples Center for WWE SummerSlam 2014? That's the burning question fans have been asking, even since the rumor got started on social media. It is certainly a possibility, but the WWE has remained tight-lipped on the matter. If Sting does appear, the WWE wants it to be a surprise to as many people as possible.

Since the first batch of WWE Network subscriptions expire next month, it seems the time would be right for the WWE to bring Sting into the fold for at least a cameo appearance. The WWE needs to create a little buzz to get fans to re-up on their network subscriptions, so a Sting appearance could definitely do the trick. WWE SummerSlam 2014 goes down at 8 p.m. on the WWE Network.
