The WWE’s Jim Ross is back with another blog and this time he talks about the TNA Icon Sting.
From his latest blog, “We’re getting lots of emails and Tweets, @JRsBBQ, regarding Sting these days. BTW has he left TNA? I actually don’t know the answer to that one but suspect that Sting is still officially with TNA. Nonetheless many fans hope that Sting is inducted in the WWE HOF in Atlanta at WM27. Theoretically, if Sting were not working for another wrestling company, it would be a splendid idea. It still might be but that’s not for me to speculate on. Sting was the first and only WCW star that Turner’s people ‘made’ in Atlanta that never wrestled for WWE as best that I recall.
I’d love to help produce a definitive Sting DVD some day as I was around him when he first started in the biz and teamed with the Ultimate Warrior, then known as Rock, in the UWF as the tag team duo known as the Bladerunners. The Bladerunners were going to be positioned as UWF’s answer to the Road Warriors.”
A pretty interesting analysis by J.R. I have often wondered if Vince would allow Sting to be inducted considering he made his mark without the promotion machine of the WWF/WWE. My guess is if it made Vince some money with an accompanying DVD deal then the answer is yes. but as J.R. also mentions there is no way this happens while Sting works for the competition.
