    BORING

  2. Jared says:

    Sting is 50 years old. Mr. Anderson is young, and a budding star. Put him against Daniels or something for fuck’s sake. Sting is stale as hell. I don’t care about the joker thing. Get him out of the ring. I got over the nostalgia aspect after seeing him with the title for the first few runs.

  3. Kerry says:

    Actually, Sting’s 52 now.

  4. James says:

    Unlike some people (Hulk Hogan, in particular), Sting is willing to put over newer and younger talent, but guys like Hogan, Bischoff, and Russo doesn’t want that to happen, which I know devastates Sting personally, because he likes to put over as much younger talent as possible.

  5. Ryan C. says:

    Anderson vs. Daniels sounds really good right now

  6. james says:

    Sting may be 52 but he is still a great talent. He probably shouldn’t be champion but he still has a lot to offer to the wrestling world.

  7. AJ Starr says:

    Jared, do you think Anderson is going to draw without having an established star to work with? Sting is proven to be THE guy to put someone with to elevate them. Anderson was nowhere near ready for the World Title to begin with, and right now, who else other than Sting is groomed for the spot? Hmm… let’s see.

    We have… Scott Steiner? No. Kurt Angle? Maybe. Jeff Jarrett? Hell no.

    Anderson & Sting are in a program to get Anderson established as a top-tier player.

    Who the hell CARES how old someone is, as long as they get the job done? I swear, if some of you marks ran a company, you’d have nameless 20 year olds Main Eventing, and the company would fold within a year because you would refuse to put anyone established in there to elevate the talent.

  8. RJ Ace says:

    I get what you’re saying AJ and I agree to a point. However, why give the title at Slammiversary just to take it off of him a few weeks later? Why not just have Sting beat Anderson at Slammiversary and put Anderson in chase mode until Hardcore Justice? Having 2 guys play hot potato with the World Title damages the credibility of the belt and I think it does damage to both wrestlers in the long run. TNA has done a pretty good job with their belt and I really don’t want to see a bunch of multi time champions like WWE has. Triple H-13, Edge-11, John Cena-10, Orton-8, Batista 6 or 7, Jericho-6, Undertaker-7, The Rock-8, Stone Cold-6 or 7, Hulk Hogan-6. If Anderson does beat Sting for the title, that will be his 3rd reign in less than a year.

  9. Will says:

    To AJ:

    First of all, calling people who disagree with you “marks” just comes across as immature. Second, you’re going right to the stereotype of “people don’t want a guy who’s in his 50s to be champion, they must want any random 24-year old as champion!”. No, there is a middle ground. There are plenty of guys who can carry the main event scene without Sting, who’s again, in his FIFTIES and already been champion more times than necessary. And yes, age DOES matter. When talking about the company’s WORLD TITLE, it should be carried by people who might actually be around for a few more years. Nobody’s buying Sting in the long term. And Anderson’s not ready for the title? WWE was on the verge of making him champion four years ago before the injuries, and now Anderson’s not ready? Please, Anderson is as ready as he’ll ever be. Bottom line, the move was bad.

  10. Korey Parker says:

    Sting has always been boring to me….i never enjoyed watched him in the ring.

  11. IChurch says:

    Ric Flair was in his fifties still putting over talent. Harley Race as well. There is something to be said about veterans who can still pull off a storyline to elevate a star. Mr Anderson’s problem on the other hand is not legitimacy but a consistent character. Every other month he changes. TNA needs to spend time letting a character mature and not radically change. I love TNA but they need to spend weeks and months building a wrestler, kind of like what they r doing with Crimson. I hope they don’t rush him too fast.

    On a side note TNA please don’t drop the ball with Robert Roode. Think through ur plans for him. Don’t make him part of Immortal unless u blow it up and start from scratch. Actually scratch that make him a lone wolf in the style ofMr Perfect or Rick Rude with perhaps a great manager Ric Flair. Don’t add anyone else until he is built up. Ric Flair and Robert Roode could lift TNA out the dumps then if the Hardys stay eventually team them with Flari

  12. DJ Reign says:

    Why not add Nick Hogan

  13. JayJay says:

    I just thought I’d toss this out there… saying Mr. Anderson is “young” is pretty stupid. He’s 35 years old. Hardly young. Yes, compared to Sting just about anyone in wrestling is young… but Mr. Anderson is not some up and coming 25 year old.

    I see post like that all the time. People will mention R-truth as a young guy he’s 39, they say Christopher Daniels vs Sting or Mr. Anderson is better… give the young guy like Daniels a shot… he’s 40 years old. Over the past year I’ve read so many post from people talking about the old guys needing to hand the business over to the young guys, but the young guys they mention seem to be closer to the end of their career rather than the start of it. Abyss is 37, Bobby Roode, James Storm, and Matt Morgan are 34. Hernandez is 38. The WWE is very similar.

    I’m not saying all this to defend Sting, I don’t think he should be the champion either, this seems pretty clearly to be a way to build up Hogan vs Sting at Bound for Glory. The business needs TRUE young talent to emerge. Guys that are in their early to mid 20’s instead of early to mid 30’s.

  14. Jose says:

    I’m sorry, did you just say Mr. Anderson is a young, budding talent? Yeah, about six years ago.

  15. JayJay says:

    Was that directed at me? Because I thought it was pretty clear I was saying anyone that said Mr. Anderson was young was stupid.

  16. James says:

    RJ Ace makes a great point. At least TNA doesn’t have constant title changes, where almost everybody is a multi-time World Champion.

  17. T says:

    How old is Taker? Why is it Ok for him to still be main eventing but not Sting?

  18. hush says:

    T… Taker is 46

  19. RJ Ace says:

    @T – When’s the last time Undertaker main evented a ppv? He hasn’t been World Champion in 2 and a half years and when he does wrestle, he still put’s on a great match. I’m a Sting fan too but he isn’t even in Undertaker’s universe.

  20. RJ Ace says:

    I’m sorry I meant a year and a half. Not 2 and a half years.

  21. Francisco says:

    Point blank Sting is ruining his legacy with all the crap he’s done in TNA especially his latest incarnation as Joker Sting it sucks and its not entertaining and Anderson is just plain boring his Mic style is tired the whole show sucks period and unless tna is really about to push the X division then I have no interest like people wanna see Jeff Jarrett the Hendersonville Hillbilly and Karen Jarrett on the screen. I just can’t believe Sting wont go to WWE and get a HOF induction wrestle Taker and get the DVD out if his career just mind blowing that he stays with TNA bur I guess he can’t work the schedule or keep up with Taker at this point. Guess they’ll be happy with 5,000 buys for Hardcore Justice
