Source: The Big WrestleShark ShowThis past week, multi-time world champion and TNA Hall of Famer, "The Icon" Sting appeared on Scotland's Big WrestleShark Show for a quick interview with Simon Cassidy and David Thomson. Some of the highlights can be found below. The entire interview can be found here, or by subscribing to WrestleShark in iTunes. Velvet Sky will join the show on Tuesday.
Amid the constant rumours of retirement, what keeps him coming back to TNA? "The group of men and women under the TNA roof, the fans, the brand, I just feel content here. The home has been good here; Dixie Carter, the Carter family have been great to work with over the years and Dixie is very persuasive."
What brought him into TNA in the first place: "I was out for five years…the way wrestling ended was not good in those days. I got a phone call from the Jarrett family, then I had a meeting in L.A with Jeff and Dixie… as a matter of fact Kurt was there at that meeting. Again, Dixie was very persuasive, being willing to make it right in terms of scheduling, the time on the road, of course money is an issue, it just all came together. And I love the brand…that's all there is to it. It was like a now or never moment for me."
His thoughts on how TNA has grown since then: "I still love the brand, its grown, its matured, its blossomed. Its turned into something which takes us into 120 countries now. At the beginning we were in the Fairgrounds in Nashville Tennessee."
How to make TNA a household name? "Taking the show on the road, I think last year at Wembley, the TV tapings at Wembley were a great example…I wanna do the same thing in the United States, it's what we used to do! I think there is potential for that to happen in 2013."
What's left to accomplish? "I would like to see TNA Impact Wrestling become a household name in the United States. We seem to be a household name here, I want that to happen in the states…I think if we go out on the road there is a lot of potential for that to happen."
