However, many have said Dean Ambrose may be a better fit for that feud, teaming up two former Shield members in himself and Reigns against the two former Wyatt Family members.
If a third member was to join the Wyatt Family, this would open up for the Sting to join Reigns and Ambrose. Some have said this member could be Bo Dallas, not Erick Rowan as he is out injured.
The reason behind the WWE keeping The Vigilante off WWE programming since WrestleMania is add more hype and shock to the SummerSlam PPV, to catch more subscribers to the WWE Network.
There has been some speculation as well SummerSlam will be a four hour long PPV, but some schedulers still have it down as the usual three hours.
All is expected to be made clear on Monday Night Raw this evening.
WrestleMania 32 Match?
The knock-on effect of the Sting and the Undertaker appearing at SummerSlam could not only mean a boost in network subscribers, but also a setting up of a match between the two icons at WrestleMania 32 next year.
Fans have been wanting to see this match for over 20 years and the WWE may finally be cashing in on this great opportunity before age becomes a huge factor for the two superstars.
With Sting at 56 and the Undertaker at 50, now would be the perfect time to have these two face off in the ring. Both wrestlers are expected to retire after this match and be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Taking place at the Undertaker's home state of Texas, the Phenom would be expected to pick up the win at WrestleMania 32, ending his career on a high.
