WWE Hall of Famer Sting is currently not under contract with World Wrestling Entertainment, according to a report from WWE Backstage correspondent and Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin, who notes that despite Sting not being under contract at the moment, it does not mean that the two sides can’t work out a possible merchandising deal of some sort going forward.

Sting’s WWE status was put into question over the weekend when he was abruptly withdrawn from an upcoming toy line, with the statement from Mattel reading, “Due to circumstances out of our control, Sting needed to be removed from Legends Series 7.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.”
