Yesterday, the news spread that Mattel was removing a Sting figure from its Legends Series 7 wave and we now know why.
A Pro Wrestling Sheet report reveals that the WCW icon is no longer under WWE contract. Of course, a new merchandising agreement could still be signed between the two parties, but that’s why Mattel cannot sell its likeness.
Rumors spread yesterday that All Elite Wrestling was interested in Sting after Cody Rhodes tweeted his own listening meme in response to the number pulled.
