TNA star Sting explains why he's remained with the company and what's kept him wrestling this long Mar 15, 2013 - 12:11 PM
TNA star Sting spoke with Brandon Baxter on 101.7 Kiss FM Jonesboro, Arkansas and was asked why he has stuck with TNA. "It's the same answer every time and that is the brand, just love the brand," Sting said. "It reminded me of the old school WCW and actually launching Monday Nitro and becoming the talk of the town and then talk of the whole wide world, and I saw the same potential here with this group of guys and everyone behind the scenes as well."
Sting was asked what has kept him wrestling this long. "Man, the crowd," he said. "The crowd is always the ticket, always the key there. I have always had a relationship with the crowd for so many years and, man, any wrestler who denies that is lying to you. The crowd matters. It's also the guys and the group of people we have and trying to accomplish something, to get the name and brand out there."

Powell's POV: Sting also spoke about the origins of his face paint, taking Impact on the road and going to cities across the country, working with Ric Flair, his favorite opponent, which wrestler has pushed him to his limit, and more.
