David Dexter reports that wrestling legend Sting was a guest on the WrestleShark and spoke about his loyalty to TNA and Dixie Carter, why he stayed with the company for the past several years and more.
Here are some highlights:
Why Sting feels loyalty to TNA: “The group of men and women under the TNA roof, the fans, the brand, I just feel content here. The home has been good here; Dixie Carter, the Carter family have been great to work with over the years and Dixie is very persuasive.”
Why Sting kept coming back to TNA: “Dixie was very persuasive, being willing to make it right in terms of scheduling, the time on the road, of course money is an issue, it just all came together. And I love the brand…that’s all there is to it. It was like a now or never moment for me.”
Sting on TNA going on the road and helping TNA become a household name: “I think if we go out on the road there is a lot of potential for that to happen.”
Sting on his TNA Hall of Fame induction: “Very humbling…because there are so many other guys, the Samoa Joes, the A.J. Styles, Bobby Roode, James Storm, Jeff Jarrett, who were here before I was. They helped build a foundation for this company,” Sting said. “I was kind of like ‘am I being put out to pasture here or what?’ [laughs] plus I’m an active wrestler. So it seems kind of weird to be inducted into the Hall of Fame while you’re still working.”
