Here are some of the latest WWE news updates and rumors for the week, which include Sting, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and others.
Sting contract details out
Details on the contract for Sting, who made his debut during the Survivor Series last month, were released this week.
Sting signed a deal for six appearances, including his debut.
“This type of contract is pretty unique and quite possibly the most limited of all contracts for a part time performer in WWE history. It will be interesting to see how Sting is used between now and his speculated WrestleMania 31 match,” writes Wrestling News Source.
This mean that The Icon will only be appearing four times in the WWE before his WrestleMania 31 date.
Also, there’s been rumors that Sting will face Triple H during the event.
Lesnar to appear on Dec. 15 ‘Raw’
Brock Lesnar’s return to the WWE was pushed back to Dec. 15 for a “Monday Night Raw” episode, according to CageSideSeats.com.
It was originally reported that he would appear on the Dec. 8 edition of “Raw.”
Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Vince McMahon explained why he chose Lesnar to defeat the Undertaker during the last WrestleMania.
“That’s on me. Those decisions aren’t easy to make, you know, but you have to make difficult decisions sometimes,” he said.
He added: “That’s my job, to do that. I think I made the right call at the right time. Coming into this year’s WrestleMania, I don’t think that Brock Lesnar could be any hotter than he will be reminding everyone of what happened, of Brock Lesnar breaking the Undertaker’s streak. So, to me, it was the right call.”
Reigns, other stars in house show
Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Goldust, Stardust, and The Usos were booked on a house show on Dec. 29, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter this week.
This means there’s a chance they won’t appear on the final 2014 episode of “Raw,” which is on the same night.
The house show is in Richmond, Virginia, and “Raw” is in Washington, DC.
Both cities are about 100 miles apart.
