Report: WWE Wants Sting for WrestleMania XXX

Could Steve "Sting" Borden participate at the WrestleMania XXX pay-per-view next year? Per a recent report, WWE management believes he might.

Sting, of course, is the one big-name wrestler Vince McMahon has never been able to get.

And with TNA being in a state of total disarray (whether the troubled promotion will even be around in 2014 is a lingering question), WWE's chances of signing him to a deal seem to be better than ever.

As Bryan Alvarez notes in this week's F4W Newsletter (subscription required), while the company appears to have ruled out Hulk Hogan coming back, the promotion believes it can bring in Sting for a WrestleMania XXX appearance: "The WWE side believes that Hogan's ultimately TNA-bound, but they also feel there is a decent chance that they may end up being able to get Sting for WrestleMania next year."

Alvarez also offers some background information about WWE's interest in the veteran star:

A few years ago WWE did a video tease for Undertaker's return that the Internet immediately assumed was actually a tease for Sting. It never was, but there was so much talk about it that WWE actually did open up negotiations briefly with Sting as a result of it. It never went anywhere, but with TNA in the state its in and no guarantee they'll offer him another great deal for 2014, the timing may be perfect for him to make a jump.

Presumably, Sting would take on Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX, as that's obviously where the interest is. A John Cena and Sting program would be an intriguing option too, though.

Of course, while the 54-year-old would undoubtedly garner a decent amount of attention if he were to wrestle in New Orleans next year, it remains to be seen just what he would do for the card business-wise.

Despite his name value, he hasn't made terribly much difference to TNA's financial situation over the last seven years. Sure, he has nostalgia appeal, but what else? 

With this in mind, how likely would he be to boost WrestleMania's business?
