It's that time of year where reports and rumors of Sting heading to WWE begin surfacing. This year is no different, as The Observer is claiming WWE is in talks with "The Icon" Sting. Sting, who has not renewed his TNA deal yet, has admitted to having multiple talks with WWE in the past about working with the company. He said that he's even gotten very close once or twice to making a deal. 

New Show For WWE Network

WWE is planning a "Where Are They Now?" type of show for the new WWE Network, reports Wrestling Observer. It's expected that the show will catch up with former WWE stars, taking a look at what they're doing now. These types of pieces have already been a regular feature on WWE's official website, so this would simply be an extension of that.

Jake Roberts Update

Jake "The Snake" Roberts' appearance on the "Old School" edition of WWE Raw was a one-time deal, reports The Wrestling Observer. This doesn't necessarily mean he won't appear in the Rumble — something he has been lobbying to do for months — but that deal has not been worked out at the time of this writing.

In a related story, Roberts has been telling people that the reason Dean Ambrose was smiling during that final segment on Raw was because the snake defecated on his chest. CM Punk apparently told Ambrose and it caused him to smile while he was laid out to close the show.
