There is currently internet speculation that Sting no longer has a working relationship with WWE. The marketing manager of the WWE/Mattel partnership announced that Sting would no longer be included in the brand’s upcoming WWE action figure line due to circumstances out of their control.

Not to mention, Sting also recently tweeted about AEW and Cody Rhodes acknowledged Sting.


In an update on speculation about Sting’s status with WWE, Ryan Satin of noted that he is not under contract with the company at the moment:

“Sources tell us that despite the wrestling legend not being under contract at the moment, it does not mean the two sides wont work out a possible merchandising deal going forward.”

It’s hard to say if we’ll see Sting pop-up back in WWE or make the move to another company. Regardless, if he is on the move it seems all signs point to AEW. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
