Sting could be returning to WWE television down the line.
Sting is one of the biggest names that was ever created in the history of pro wrestling. He made his name known while competing in the NWA, which was later rebranded to WCW. He has wrestled some of the biggest names in the business such as Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan.
However, it took a while for him to join WWE. When the sports entertainment company bought WCW in 2001, WWE was signing WCW talents left and right. Although WWE Chairman Vince McMahon attempted to sign Sting, the deal was never made due to Sting’s fear of how he would be booked.
He decided to join TNA Wrestling and competed in the company for several years. However, as his career was clearly winding down, he made the decision to finally join the company in 2014. He wrestled Triple H at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 but lost the match.
WWE continued to book him and finally made the decision for him to compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. However, that was a mistake as he suffered a neck injury after taking a powerbomb in the corner in his last match against Seth Rollins for the WWE Title at the Night of Champions pay-per-view event in 2015. Sting’s career appears to be over as he hasn’t wrestled since.
The WWE Hall of Famer recently decided to experiment with Facebook Live on his official Facebook page. As seen in the video below, it was brief yet newsworthy. According to the wrestling legend, he can still wrestle despite his injury.
"I can still wrestle," Sting said (h/t Wrestling Inc). "I can still wrestle! I'm just not going to."
Although he may never wrestle under the WWE banner again, he is open to appearing on television again. When asked if he would be open to an on-air role on WWE television like fellow WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is doing right now as Raw General Manager, Sting responded by saying:
"Yeah, I might consider something like that," Sting said. "Good to see Kurt back by the way."
Sting has portrayed a GM in the past under the TNA (now known as GFW) banner and played the part well. Although he could replace Angle as the Raw GM, WWE could come up with another idea for him to return to television. Time will tell what WWE officials and Mr. McMahon decide to do down the line.
