Exactly. I was a little upset about that until it was revealed that it was Taker's idea to let Brock end the streak.
Although there are multiple reports that Sting was given a contract by WWE which he still hasn't signed yet, he appeared twice on the WWE Network when they were airing the Warrior tribute. There was also a video of him working out and he looked pretty good in shape. There are more signs pointing towards Sting coming to the WWE than ever this year. If Taker has one more match in him, we might finally get to see match the IWC has been dreaming of for years.
