Sting Speaks On Why He Continues To Stay With TNA Impact Wrestling

Justin LaBar

Sting recently did an interview with The Wrestleshark Show and talked about his time in TNA.

On being the first inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame:
"Very humbling. Humbling because there are so many other guys, the Samoa Joe’s, the AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, James Storm, Jeff Jarrett, who were here before I was. They helped build a foundation for this company, so for me to be inducted first, was humbling in that way…and just humbling anyway. I was kind of like ‘am I being put out to pasture here or what?’ [laughs] plus I’m an active wrestler still…so it seems kind of weird to be inducted into the hall of fame while you’re still working."

What keeps him coming back to TNA despite retirement rumors:
"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."

His remaining goals working for TNA:
"I would like to see TNA Impact Wrestling become a household name in the United States. We seem to be a household name here, I want that to happen in the states…I think if we go out on the road there is a lot of potential for that to happen"
