Jim Ross Speaks on Latest Sting-to-WWE Rumors – “Merely Internet Dribble”

StingWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated his blog, speaking on the latest round of rumors surrounding TNA Hall of Famer and professional wrestling "Icon", Sting. The latest speculation is that WWE is considering going after Sting when his TNA contract expires later this year. However, these rumors have circulated for the past several years, and while some are founded in truth – such as Sting negotiating a contract that fell through – they are generally founded in internet hype. 

"My Twitter, @JRsBBQ, timeline is being hammered with the latest Sting rumors of him coming to WWE at some point in the future. Are these rumors of any significant difference than the basic, same ones that we've been hearing since WCW closed their doors or every time Sting's contract nears it's end? As best that I know, Sting is very happy where he is currently working and has no plans to launch a WWE in ring career at the age of 54. I've known Sting since day one and have immense respect for the man and do feel that he will be a WWE HOFer some day. There's some cool stuff on the Mid South DVD with Sting and his tag team partner Rock aka Ultimate Warrior in their Blade Runner incarnation.

I cannot predict the future but these daily, Sting-to-WWE rumors are merely internet dribble and are unfounded although they always seem to make for interesting fan chatter. Obviously, something as simple as Sting appearing in a WWE promo last week in the build to the WWE vs. World Title match featuring Cena vs. Del Rio likely fueled this fire, too."
