News of Sting's future in wrestling heated up this past week when Mattel announced that Sting had been removed from the Legends figure line.

They wrote, "Due to circumstances out of our control Sting needed to be removed from Legends Series 7. We’ll look to include this figure in a future wave if he becomes available to us again.”

Sting started to become more active on Twitter in recent weeks after previously only posting a handful of times a year. He recently caught the wrestling world's eye when he congratulated Lance Archer on his success in AEW.

Cody Rhodes saw both of items as an opportunity to stoke the fire.

Sting did promote WWE Money in the Bank in a tweet sent on May 9.

It is unknown if he'll appear on television for any company moving forward. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016 and was part of the blue carpet event when SmackDown premiered on FOX.
