Sting Now A WWE Alum, Heat On Brock Lesnar Over Work?, Theme Songs For PPVs, Kharma’s Return

Has Sting said anything publicly about being added to the Alumni section of the official WWE website?

I haven’t seen any public comments from Sting regarding his profile being added to the Alumni section of the official WWE website. Some are surprised about the inclusion but remember, WWE owns a large portion of Sting’s career in their tape library and it’s probably a good idea to make newer fans aware of his presence. Vince McMahon made it pretty clear by highlighting Ric Flair at the WWE Hall of Fame this year that he doesn’t see TNA Wrestling as a threat.

Does Brock Lesnar have any heat for working so loose? I thought rule number one in wrestling was to look after your opponent but now he’s busted John Cena open hardway twice now?

Brock Lesnar has looked a little reckless with his work and while the first time he busted Cena open looked accidental, I have to believe what happened at Extreme Rules was a work. I haven’t watched the tape back close enough to tell whether or not Cena used a blade but they clearly wanted to add color in the match. As for Lesnar having any backstage heat, he has more heat from the boys that are upset he gets big money for limited dates rather than his work.

How are official theme songs picked for WWE pay-per-views?

WWE selects songs they want based on relationships they have with the artist, record label, etc. When a song is selected obviously a deal has to be worked out where WWE pays the artist royalties to use their material, however, it also gives the artist good mainstream exposure.

What’s the latest on Kharma?

WWE wants to eventually do Kharma vs. Beth Phoenix but they didn’t want Kharma returning to immediately take the Divas Championship off Beth. They had Nikki Bella go over Beth as a fluke and ended up using it as a way to bring back Layla. I haven’t heard the latest creative plan for Kharma’s return but a possible storyline would obviously be for Kharma to return and go over Layla, building to Kharma vs. Beth for the title. With that being said Kharma is expected back any day now.

    if brock cut cena at extreme rules hardway, brock would of had to be busted open hardway too, and the chances of that actually happening are 1 in a billion

  • Jeremy

    If you look at Stings' bio in the alumni section, it says that because WWE purchased WCW before the last airing of Nitro, Sting technically appeared on WWE programming in that last match against Flair. Therefor, he is an alumnus.

  • Hunter

    Kharma can take her time coming back for all I care, I want Layla to have a really long reign.

    • darius

      shes been out of wwe long a nuff shes needs to return soon to wwe

  • Dangerous Lee

    Cena bleeding at extreme rules was 100% a work. Lesnar was grazing his elbows over cenas head to try and open up the cut. When the blood dried up he tried to reopen it again by rubbing it.

    Since Sting got nothing left to do in TNA, it's better for him to end his career in WWE. No offense to TNA, but it's really great for him to end up his career in a bigger league. Just make at least a year deal with WWE, works some matches with Undertaker, Triple H or CM Punk; and everyone will be happy. And a Hall of Fame guaranteed too.

    • Lee

      That would be nice, but Vince want him to work a full schedule & he want's to work a schedule like The Rock had.

      • havoc525

        Vince is more open now than ever to having part time mega stars, if there were a moment for Sting to give it one run, now would be the time.

    Sting a WWE Alum?!

    WOAH…… I never thought I'd live to see this happen.

  • Dave L

    Honestly if it wasn't for WWE posting about STING I wouldn't have ever looked at it from their perspective, YES it was WCW's last show, but it WAS wwe's first WCW show. So Sting has been a WWE employee, even so far as he made the choice to ride out his WCW contract and get paid by WWE rather then sign a new contract with WWE.

  • Joe O.

    I’m all for Kharma vs Beth but how would she get the belt off Layla? Both would be working as face so that wouldn’t make much sense unless you turn Kharma and Beth. Something’s gotta give.

  • Fred

    STING should NEVER go WWE

  • havoc525

    My question is, how does a band submit a song to WWE for use, I am connected (somewhat) to a local band and would consider suggesting they give it a shot.

    • Tony P.

      Fail lol. You probably suck

      • havoc525

        Yep, you’re right, I mean you would know, as much time as you spend on your knees, you have the experience edge.

        • Adam Warren

          Lmfao BOOM!!! Two years old but still a great comeback haha

      I was on 4 national tours with the Vans Warped tour, my only suggestion is becoming friends with people who work for WWE, their suggestion of a band would carry more weight then just a submission. For instance Playstation was a sponsor on the tour, and if you look at some of the sport games a lot of punk and hip hop acts songs are featured in the games, A rep is usually at events like that looking for acts but more importantly becoming friends with the acts. I will say a Friend of mines band did make a WWE PPV.. Survivor series 2006- Hazen St- "Are you ready"
