Hey Scott, I’ve got a question about Sting. Sting has said multiple times that the reason he hasn’t signed with WWE is because he’s concerned about what the company would do to his legacy after seeing how they used the other WCW employees who jumped over. And he feels like WWE would destroy the legacy and prestige. A fair concern, the Invasion did destroy more than a couple careers. But I don’t buy it. If Sting is so concerned with his Legacy, why the hell is he working for TNA? And beyond that, why the hell did he agree to a gimmick change that involves him impersonating Jim Carrey if he played the Joker. It’s not as if he took the role seriously and is testing himself by taking a crappy gimmick and doing his best with it, since it’s pretty clear that he’s dicking around and putting in as much work as Ben Kingsley did in BloodRayne. So my question to you is this? If Sting doesn’t care about his legacy (which I don’t think he does) why not sign with WWE? Stubbornness? Loyalty to Dixie? Money? Heat with Vince? I just doesn’t make any sense.
Given how many chances he’s had to work with the WWE and how many times he’s turned them down, it would have to be stubbornness at this point. Although I only saw the one episode of Impact featuring his Joker thing, so I can’t really comment on that too much. I’ve always heard there was some issue with his born-again beliefs, but if Shawn could deal with it, you think Sting could as well.
