- We've noted from multiple sources that WWE officials do not see signing Sting as a priority. While this is true, they do want him as a part of the company as they realize that Sting is sort of the last piece to WWE's WCW puzzle. They also realize that there is lots of money to be made with Sting through t-shirts, action figures and other merchandise.

The latest word is that Sting may pop up at WrestleMania XXX, but not wrestle, and then wrestle 1 or 2 matches before being used as a special attraction. With WrestleMania 31 being held in California next year and Sting being a California guy, there's potential for him to be a cornerstone for next year's Hall of Fame class.

Damn, was hoping Sting v Taker would happen at WM XXX.

We're officially in WrestleMania season, hopefully Punk returns

They've run Summerslam in the Staples Centre since 2009. Maybe that'd be an interesting time to bring Sting in. Gives you plenty of time to hype him too and it's still a big "important" PPV.

I am so so tired of John Cena. The man is a bore.

Big E Langston will now only be known as "Big E" while Antonio Cesaro will now only be known as "Cesaro".

Yeah, WWE knows we are too lazy to memorize names.

I read that Vince wanted to remove Cesaro's first name cause it didn't make him sound tough.

So, similar to Batista. Everybody knows his first name by now, Dave, but Batista sounds tougher.

He should be a lock for future main event success. Management would have dropped the ball big time if he doesn't pan out as a major heel in the biz...

Cena vs. Cesaro could main event WrestleMania next year and tear the house down

RIP King Mabel, Viscera. Big Daddy V. I still remember when he won the 1995 King of the Ring Tournament, and he feuded with the Undertaker and Diesel Back in 1995.

I have been reading some messages from the other wrestlers. and they were saying he was a great guy.

TMZ reports that Viscera had lost a lot of weight before his death, 100 pounds within the last 6 months. Losing weight too fast could cost a heart attack, I heard.
