It is common practice for the WWE to confiscate signs they do not want displayed. Last night was the Warrior tribute episode of RAW honoring Jim Hellwig’s passing. Smart fans or “smarks” as the wrestling business calls them surf the web looking for tidbits of insider information leaked from within WWE’s own ranks. We reported that Dave Meltzer broke the news of Sting’s historic signing with WWE and fans around the world have caught on to it, too.
Johnathan Fredericks sent us the following text from the event:
