Shawne Merriman in WWE
Shawne Merriman's appearances on WWE Network could be part of something more. The company is high up on him and there's been talk of offering him a position. There were erroneous reports last November that suggested Merriman had an in-ring tryout but he said he was merely visiting the WWE Performance Center.
There continues to be a lot of talk about Sting coming to WWE. He left NOLA after his appearance at Wrestlecon and isn't in immediate WWE plans. His travel was arranged and paid for by the Wrestlecon promoters. There are still rumors is he coming to WWE but there is no update on his status as of this writing.
