sting videoAs we noted earlier today, WWE sent out two casting notices today seeking a Sting body double and actors/musicians to play the role of the "orchestra" in some type of promo video for Sting being shot on June 16th.

PWInsider.com then provided an update on the developing story, noting the film shoot was taking place for an upcoming Sting documentary project, and so WWE could collect B-roll footage of Sting for future use.

F4WOnline.com is now reporting the planned Sting project is NOT being filmed for WWE programming, and is actually a project from another agency that frequently works with WWE.

Once news of the Sting casting notice broke, speculation obviously began that Sting has signed a deal with WWE, but as of this writing, Sting has NOT signed any type of deal with WWE and there are no plans to bring him to TV anytime soon.
