Sting Talks His Loyalty to TNA, First Inductee Into Hall of Fame and More
Sting was recently interviewed by WrestleShark for their latest podcast. Here are some highlights.
Sting’s loyalty with the company: 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 he keeps returning every year: “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.”
On TNA becoming a household name: I think if we go out on the road there is a lot of potential for that to happen.
On being the first inductee into the TNA Hall of fame: 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.
