TNA Star Sting was recently interviewed by the UK’s Daily Star. He talked briefly about the rumors surrounding a potential WrestleMania match with the Undertaker and (Sport Entertainment) Hall of Fame induction:
“I wouldn’t say it was utter nonsense, that’s not true!” It’s a dream match that fans would want to see. It was close. I’m glad things turned out the way they did.
There are so many variables. Let’s just say that I turned it down for the same reasons I always have. Some- thing in me never trusted what would happen up there, based entirely on the track record with other WCW guys and everything that went on after Vince bought WCW.
I wont be watching but I’ll be asking what happened between Under- taker and Triple H.”
I think the Stinger was very wise in his approach. While he may have possibly been treated very well by Vince, given the track record of the way DDP, Goldberg and other top WCW stars were treated it’s safe to say he wasn’t being paranoid but practical.
