Sting talks his contractual status in TNA



In an interview with the VOC Nation Radio Network, TNA Hall of Famer and
former champion Sting expressed his wish to wrestle the Undertaker, saying
that everyone wants to work WrestleMania, even himself. Sting questioned
TNA’s intentions when they inducted him in the Hall of Fame, thinking that
they sort of want him to retire even though he was assured by Dixie Carter
that it wasn’t the case. When talking about losing to Bully Ray and not
getting another shot at the title, he said he doesn’t know what the
booking team is up to and all the stuff that is happening makes him
wonder. Sting said that he’s on a one year contract and he was very close
to signing with WWE before deciding to give TNA a try. He did acknowledge
once again of talks between him and WWE in 2007 but said there was nothing
official.

    I am a Sting fan but, this seems to be same song,different verse.Every few months there’s a story about his TNA future and how close he is to signing with WWE and having a WrestleMania

  2. Tommy B. says:

    *match

  3. ~J* says:

    tna/bixie has done all it can for sting aside from making him part owner.

  4. Kerry says:

    I have been a fan since he first came to Jim Crockett Promotions, but I think it’s past time for Steve Borden to walk away.

  5. Alex says:

    Please give us Sting vs Taker and have both retire at WM30, good god!

  6. Legend_Killer says:

    Sting vs Undertaker needs to happen

    Everytime this subject comes up I say the same thing & I’ll say it again.

    Sting is one of the only (if not the only) modern US based wrestler to become an international legend in the industry without ever working for the WWE, it would kind of be a shame to see that thrown away just so he could lose to Taker at Mania.

    I mean I understand the want, the need to have that “Wrestlemania Moment” just like everybody who ever raced on oval tracks in the USA wants to win the Daytona 500 or Indy 500, everybody who ever played any form of football wants to be the SuperBowl MVP, everybody whose ever played baseball wants to be the guy to catch that final out to win their team a World Series, etc… But is it worth it to take what makes you unique in an industry of so many forgettables & sacrifice it just to have that moment.

  8. Shockmaster Suplex says:

    If there is one wrestler to end the Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak it has to be none other than Sting.

  9. Tim says:

    Taker vs. Sting to a full blown year long build up some run ins build ups etc to go at it at WM30 beat each other to death and both not respond to the count thus No Contest then retire…….

    “If there is one wrestler to end the Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak it has to be none other than Sting.” I’ll have what he’s smoking.

    Vince would never, and I mean NEVER, let a WCW/TNA guy beat the Undertaker.

  11. Ian says:

    @Shockmmaster…what good would having Sting beat Undertaker do for ANYONE…it would destroy the mystique of the streak, it would also show that Taker beat a bunch of non WCW/TNA guys…it also would do no good for Sting because it wouldnt be putting the new guy over.

    Takers streak should NEVER be broken, even by a young guy, because if that young guy doesnt get over and goes nowhere then it diminishes the streak and everything Taker did.

  12. Fisha695 says:

    Personally I don’t find the streak important (not trying to be a smark here, but I mean come-on), however I think for marketing reasons it makes sense to have it not end. Think about it, if the streak is alive when he retires then every year after that WWE can go “Will the deadman come out of retirement to defend the streak”.

    There was one storyline idea I had to end the streak that involved Kane, Taker & Paul Bearer, but with Paul gone now it just won’t “work”.

  13. Nick says:

    Honestly I dont think Sting cares at the moment. He just wants to be in a story with Taker. So I think next year after Taker defends his streak once more against who knows Taker will come out about ready to tell the world he is done and then the lights go out. Here comes Sting. It can work for both even though Sting will more then likely lose, he has no streak he just wants to work with Taker.

  14. timothy says:

    I do not think the streak is that important either. Yeah it is cool to be undefeated at Mania, but the same guys he beats the hell out of at Mania are the same ones that beat his ass at other PPV’s.

    Could Vince allow Sting to beat the streak? It is a good possibility that he would allow it. Just because he is an exWCW guy really does not mean crap. Triple H was an exWCW guy and within a couple of years in the WWF, he was one of the top stars. UnderTaker was an exWCW and he came in the WWF and took the title off of Hogan. Ric Flair came in and won the title. Jericho was never close to be a top guy in WCW and he is a multiple World Champion in the WWE. I can go on and on about exWCW guys who came in and made an impact in the WWF/WWE.

    I think Sting and Taker can happen at Mania and it end in a time limit draw or someone comes in and screws Sting over and the following that individual be champion and Sting takes the title and run with it for a few months. Maybe even defend the title against the UnderTaker at SummerSlam and beat him there and maybe have another Sting and Taker at the following Mania and allow Taker to get the SummerSlam redemption loss.

    Anything can happen for ratings.
