Source: PWTorchMultiple TNA sources indicate there were no real discussions between Steve "Sting" Borden and WWE. Any talk of Sting being tied to the '2-21-11' vignettes were false, although some within TNA insist company president Dixie Carter was convinced that was case until 'Taker's face was shown. Others within the company say Sting and Dixie had been in talks for weeks negotiating a new contract and Dixie knew that Sting wasn't the type of guy who would "screw her over and jump ship to WWE".
People within TNA were predicting that Sting wouldn't join WWE due to the comfort level he has with the Nashville based organization and wrestlers he counts on to carry him in the ring. There is also some heat between Sting and Vince McMahon from years ago. WWE has sent 'feelers' Sting's way numerous times throughout the years and he has always turned them down. There is also no way that Sting would work a full-time WWE schedule including house shows as he's considered a "family man" these days. He is willing to work the TNA schedule as it allows him to spend time at home with his wife and kids.
