Default Why won’t Sting go?

Clearly, it no longer has anything to do with the way the WWE is presented. If anything, the place he was most recently working at was emulating the WWE he was trying to avoid all those years ago. As for those Rock/Booker T comments, WCW is long gone. Hell, Booker T has even returned to work there, and he was the butt of the joke.

Does he secretly dislike Vince? Surely, Vince would accommodate Sting and offer him a good deal of creative control in return for jobbing to ‘Taker at WrestleMania? It means we wouldn’t have to suffer HHH putting himself over Sting for no apparent reason. This is a win/win for both sides because WWE gets to execute many fans' dream match and Sting gets to wrestle on the stage that all pro wrestlers dream to perform. He’d get inducted there, too.

Is he under the illusion that being the only one to hold out will land him a pot of gold later in life? This was his time to cash in. He doesn’t have many years left, but he probably still has that one big match in him, greater than anything he’s done before.

Is the current money they offered him not right? I imagine Vince would have an open checkbook to secure his services. I can’t imagine he’d get more with TNA for a year than the WWE.

Where is the barrier here? Are both sides so blind that they cannot see the positives in this union?

I think it might be to protect his legacy as the biggest draw even to never wrestle for WWE. If not he may been done with wrestling all together.

He's about to turn 52 and has all the money he'll ever need

Dude has no need to come back and abuse himself again, even if it was for only one match....

Yup, not to mention his only appearance would be a loss to Taker and he'd become another statistic in the streak.

Something also tells me HHH has had this position secured for a year or so.

I think it's a combination of the schedule, money, creative control and Sting somehow thinking that something just does not 'feel right'. He has repeatedly stated his respect for Vinnie Mac and the he has been shown much respect likewise in the discussions they have had in the past. Moreover, he has good friends in the WWE.

If it's your first reason, then I think it's a bit stubborn of him. The majority of his fans want to see him in the most successful / biggest stage in professional wrestling and headline its main event. He'll let down a lot of wrestling fans in general if he never comes to the WWE just so that he could say that he didn't work for Vinnie Mac. But then again, that's his prerogative.

If it's the latter of your explanations, that is indeed a very sad way to retire. An icon like him deserved a proper send-off and in my opinion the only promotion that can do a wrestling career like his justice is the WWE. While it is true that he has many interests outside wrestling, just disappearing into the mist without warning is another smack in the face of wrestling fans. But as before, that's entirely his prerogative.

Steve Borden is a very private man. Whatever reasons he decides to give or not give in public for not joining with the WWE, I just get the impression that it won't be the full story. But what I really do feel is that WM 27 will be the last window of opportunity; if we do not see him in a WWE ring by the end of the show in Atlanta, I feel that however reluctantly they are willing to do so, fans must abandon any expectations of a deal going through.

A very good post, overall.

However even if Sting did just come back to TNA to put one of their up and coming stars over, that would be a great way for him to go out (doing the right thing for the future of the TNA promotion, which he has previously stated he is firmly behind).

Didn’t they already do this with Styles and Joe? The platform thing never takes with TNA. They just end up burying the new star by bringing in someone from the outside and putting him ahead. TNA wouldn’t know how to push a shopping cart.

I think he will just go back to TNA in a couple months of taking time off.

He respects Vince, but I think he doesn't trust him. He's not crazy, he knows what treatment ex-WCW superstars get. Of course, I think Stinger would be an exception because of his star power and name value, just like Gayberg.

AJ Styles did go over Sting at Bound For Glory, and it did elevate his career initially, but it was TNA's poor booking that de-pushed him later. Hopefully if Sting did come back and put someone over in TNA it would stick. I've give you that, that's not likely with Vince Russo on the booking team.
