Sting & The Undertaker Are Definitely Possibly Maybe Appearing At #WWE Summerslam
SHAME – According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, former WCW Champion Sting is set to appear at WWE Summerslam. This comes on the heels of news that The Undertaker is set to return as well.
Meltzer said that Sting’s return has been a plan for a while, and isn’t due to the ratings dropping. In addition to this, it was noted that it won’t be a surprise appearance at the event, and that it’ll be built up over several weeks. Apparently WWE had a plan set for Sting’s return, but those plans changed due to an undisclosed injury to one of the parties involved, and a new plan was made.
Sting was last seen at WrestleMania, when he made his WWE in-ring debut in a losing effort against Triple H. It is now expected that he’ll also be participating in next year’s WrestleMania.
So WWE’s summer programming just got A LOT more interesting. While this a rumor for now, Wrestling Observer Radio is as close as it gets to a sure thing in the world of internet wrestling rumors. This opens up a world of possibilities, as Sting and Taker could fight each other at Summerslam and then have a rematch at Mania, or they could enter separate feuds for Summerslam but still end up crossing paths for Mania. Undertaker looked about a decade younger at this year’s WrestleMania compared to WrestleMania 30, and Sting proved he can still go with his insane match against HHH. What does all of this mean? I have no idea, but Battleground, Summerslam and the next month of WWE programming just got a whole lot better.
