Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterWWE has been working on concepts for Sting t-shirts pushing the theme of calling him "A Man Called Sting" since WCW trademarked the phrase and WWE owns the intellectual property rights to it. A memo came in to WWE's merchandise department last week to start working on the ideas for Sting.
Regarding Sting signing a deal, as of Monday the word is that he has not signed but is very close. Another source noted that internally, the idea of Sting coming in has not been talked about as a high priority issue compared to deals to get names like Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar, Batista or The Rock.
