Backstage News – RAW Post-Shows + Sting/WWE Update


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— As of right now, the tentative plan in WWE is to tape the WWE RAW post-shows backstage during the shows each week. The key reason for this is due to the fact that the post-shows would be going on at the same time as the dark match main-events live inside the arena.

— The latest word going around is that Sting has yet to sign a contract with WWE. The feeling is that the delay in the signing is more on WWE’s end, as the company doesn’t consider him a priority. WWE is reportedly in no hurry to sign Sting in time for a match at WrestleMania XXX, although those close to Sting claim he was hoping to have a match on the show, specifically against The Undertaker.

Since Sting lives in the Dallas area, he was apparently willing to meet up with Undertaker and work out the match in advance, something that many of Taker’s past opponents at WrestleMania have done.

There is some concern in the company that Brock Lesnar may not be willing to spend all of that extra time working on the match with Undertaker, as many feel he’s only in the company because it’s a big money deal for a small amount of work.
