Despite the fact that WWE premiered the WWE 2K15
video game commercial that featured Sting on this past Monday’s RAW, a
commercial that reportedly cost roughly $200,000, it is believed that Sting and
WWE have yet to officially sign a contract.
Additional speculation that Sting had signed with WWE
came when the company began marketing Sting merchandise via the official WWE
Shop. WWE is of the impression that they own the intellectual property to
merchandise Sting materials, since they bought the intellectual property as part
of the WCW sale in 2001.
Regardless, the fact that Triple H teased Sting
possibly coming to WWE one day during his most recent sit-down interview with
Michael Cole on WWE.com had led many within the company to believe that he is of
the opinion that the deal with Sting is an inevitability.
