WWE was said to be very unhappy that the agency they used to help them source actors and musicians for an "orchestra" with Sting face paint leaked the project online. The agency reportedly never knew it would attract the interest it did.
WWE and Sting have yet to reach a deal and while this project would have gone ahead regardless WWE was keen to keep it out of the media and see the project as more advantageous should he sign.
Sting and WWE are reportedly close to signing a deal, one which extends beyond the traditional legends deal which they have offered him as standard. We have been hearing all week long that Sting is rumored for the upcoming WWE 2K15 videogame, potential televisions appearances and matches could all be part of this extended deal.
WWE sources are certain both sides will reach an agreement and the deal will inevitably happen.
