Latest '#WWETransformed' tweet points to a character more than logo; is it Sting? and more likely theories

WWE on Twitter

UPDATED: It's even less than we joked.  But, hey, there was Sting news today!

Today's Rumor Round-up pointed you to a cryptic tweet from the official WWE Twitter account that many took as another tease for the pending transition from the 'scratch' logo for the company to the sleeker, WWE Network icon.

But another image sent out the same way raises some doubt about that theory:

In retrospect, the first image also looked like a pendant hanging from the neck of a person with long hair.

Immediate speculation has jumped to this being either Sting or Undertaker as part of the debut of the formerreturn of the latter and the beginning of a build toward their showdown at WrestleMania 31.

Alternate theories being floated include the call-up of NXT Champion Adrian Neville (because of the hair, even though nothing about the character would lend itself to the spiked shoulder pads) or developmental roster member Solomon Crowe (who hasn't even debuted on NXT yet, but whose character on the independent scene, Sami Callahan, might have worn spiked shoulder pads).

While any of those would be cool, fans would do well to remember that San Diego Comic-Con officially starts today.  WWE has always had a presence at the pop culture carnival that is SDCC, usually to hype toy or comic book launches (last year they announced their comic book licensing deal with Papercutz).

The company also used their Twitter in similar fashion last fall, getting fans riled up about the possibility of a Sting signing when in fact they were releasing a still-very-cool-but-not-Steve-Borden-in-WWE-cool Undertaker statue.

Which will it be this time?  I say, "hope for Sting, expect a Kane animated movie".
