Sting Speaks On Ever Going Into WWE HOF, A Match With Undertaker & More

Justin LaBar

StingSting did an interview with The Phoenix New Times to help promote TNA's Bound For Glory weekend. He spoke on a number of different topics.

Who he'd like to make into a big star: "There's some great talents here. Magnus is somebody who I'm watching and going, "Man, there's definitely that could be done with him." He just needs to find his niche. There are few others that I'm interested in working with and I want to do that."

If he'll ever be inducted in WWE's Hall of Fame: "Well, I know every year there seems to be talk of it. There's rumors that always fly. It was all over the Internet pretty big last year or the year before. So, I don't know, especially now that I will be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame. They may just turn the page at that point. I have no idea."

If he would ever join WWE: "Ahhh…It's too tough of a question to answer because its not just what they would do. It would have to depend on what the dynamics of that particular time would be. What's going on? What's the context? For example, right here with TNA. What are my choices? You just never say never."

Anyone in WWE or ROH he would like to work with: "Everybody knows, as far as non-TNA wrestlers, it would have to be Taker. Always wanted to have one real cool thing with Taker… The last time I spoke with him is when he was with WCW [when he was "Mean" Mark Callous]. Teddy Long was his manager and I actually worked with him. We worked a few matches."

Ric Flair has dealt with financial and personal issues within the last few years. And Hulk Hogan is the midst of his sex tape controversy. Is it hard seeing your friends go through such heavy-duty drama? Especially since, because of your lifestyle, you'd never have to deal with such things?
Yeah, of course it is. Hulk, for example, he's a different guy now. What is surfacing now is…really it's from his past. It was the old Hogan. It's a consequence that he's dealing with from his past and there's nothing he can do about it. But the truth of the matter is, he's a different guy now. His life is changed, he's got a new wife, and he's happy. But he's not gonna try to sweep it under the rug and pretend that its not there and deny that it happened. He's going to admit, "Yup, I blew it. Its what I did. And, unfortunately, it's a bad choice that I made, but it is what it is." That was then and this is now. Trying to cover it all up is going to make it worse for him and he knows that.

As far as Ric goes. I feel bad for Ric. I'm not about everything that's going on in his life right now, but I talk to him occasionally. I talked to him a month ago, I think, and I always want the best for him. I love Ric. I'd kill for that guy.
