Alex Marvez featured an interview with current TNA Wrestling Champion Sting. In the column, Sting talks more about how close he was to signing with WWE and working WrestleMania 27. He also talks about the ultimate reason he decided to stick with TNA:
“I’m not going to lie to you — who wouldn’t want to say that they did ‘Wrestlemania’ at least one time? It’s the ultimate event in wrestling. It’s still in the back of my mind that there’s a chance of it happening someday, somehow. I think time may have run out completely now, but who knows? The timing couldn’t have been better (to work ‘Wrestlemania’), but I’m glad it turned out the way it did. Deep in my heart, I wasn’t fulfilled. My mission was not accomplished with TNA. It was like with WCW. I just hated the idea after all these years that I put in that this was the way it was going to end. I go back to when (TNA) was just this little company doing stuff out of the fairgrounds in Nashville. Now we’re in 120 countries. I’d like the story to continue to grow.”
