Sting has officially signed a contract with WWE, and it appears that the pro wrestling agreement remains a secret. Sources say Sting will be working an exciting project in the near future.
Rumors of the legendary wrestler joining WWE have been going around since January, with many speculating that he would sign on to fight The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31 in 2015.
In the wake of WrestleMania 30, the rumors died down a bit, but have now reappeared thanks to increased Sting-focused segments on the WWE Network. On Sunday, May 11, WWE posted a ’30 Second Fury’ clip featuring Sting, and the wrestler is rumored to have collaborated with WWE on several other video projects.
Sting also recently appeared in WWE’s tribute to the Ultimate Warrior.
He is arguably best known for his time spent with World Championship Wrestling (WCW); owing to his loyalty to the now-defunct promotion, Sting came to be dubbed as “The Franchise” of WCW during the 1990s and early 2000s. He is also well known for his tenure with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
Sting is a fifteen-time World Champion, having held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship six times, the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship six times, the WWA World Heavyweight Championship once and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship four times.
He is a WCW Triple Crown winner, has held 21 total championships between WCW and TNA, and is the only man to hold the NWA, WCW, and TNA World Titles in his career.
Sting has headlined many major pay-per-views since the late 1980s. Perhaps most notably, he closed the 1989, 1990 and 1997 editions of WCW’s premier annual event, Starrcade, in singles matches, and won the Battlebowl main event of the 1991 edition; as well as headlining the 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 editions of TNA’s premier annual event Bound for Glory.
