The website adds: “Remembered for his colorful charisma and struggle with The nWo, Sting has become synonymous with the Atlanta-based organization.

    For those not knowing what we are talking about, I could totally see TNA doing something like this with WWE.

    No. He wouldn’t buy TNA. He would have a partnership with TNA similar to what he had with ECW in the 1990’s. You forget that ECW wrestlers actually wrestled on Monday Night Raw, and WWF wrestlers wrestled in ECW. They even did some crossover stuff as late as 2000.

    @ d2k…you forgot that its vince mcmahon….if he would buy tna it would get buried …just like wcw

    @ Rob Buck: You are right on. I said a little while ago that WWE and TNA could definitely have a mutually-beneficial relationship and I think the Ric Flair at the WWE HOF was the olive branch to kick things off. TNA is not a threat in any way, shape, or form to WWE. It would make more sense for TNA to be a farm-system for future WWE superstars the way ECW was with the WWF. WWE could send people from FCW straight to TNA to make a name for themselves there, and then pick the best of the best to come up to the big league. And, or peopel whom don’t make the cut in NXT or Tough Enough can go there. This way TNA would always have good pool of young talent and WWE will have better quality matches and better promos from wrestlers.

    Not having the territories like in the old days really hurts the wrestlers of today because they don’t have the vehicle to hone their craft. Honestly, going from having no experience at all to being LIVE on RAW and Smackdown every week is asking for a lot.

    I don’t know how long TNA’s contract is with Spike TV, but it is also possible that Vince could be maneuvering into a position to have TNA programming on the WWE Network in the future. This wouldn’t necessarily be unprecedented. In the early 80’s Vince signed a deal with Turner to bring WWF programming on TBS to help get it off the ground. Since they basically look at WWE as a ‘brand’ (like FOX, Disney, Time Warner, etc.) rather than a ‘wrestling federation’ anymore it wouldn’t be a problem of having TNA programming on the WWE Network.

    This is weird. I never thought they would do this. It makes sense for Sting to be in the WCW DVDs but for him to be in the alumni section is just strange.

  • poko

    I can’t imagine TNA would be anything but thrilled. One of their performers is being put over by the largest wrestling promotion in the world. It’s good for business for everyone involved. There is no reason that the WWE and TNA have to fight some kind of cold war with each other.

    @Dave..i hate Joker Sting..-_- hes annoying…

  • pin4eva

    we are about to see sting vs the undertaker at wrestlemania

  • matt

    i want to see sting at least wrestle once in a wwe ring so hopefully these are steps toward that, its not like time is on their side though.

  • Dave

    WWE bought out WCW, and along with that, they got the rights to use WCWs archive footage and history. Sting was a huge part of WCW history, so the WWE have the rights to use his history, footage and likeness from his WCW days.
    If they were to use footage of him in TNA it would be illegal unless they paid TNA for the rights though. So don’t expect to see Joker Sting appear anywhere on WWE.com

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    I am sure WWE will try to induct Sting in the HoF whenever his contract is up with TNA.

  • scooter

    stings a legend but how can he be alumni when he’s never worked there?

  • Rob Buck

    This goes with what I said about the whole WWE-TNA deal for Flair’s HOF induction:

    The only thing I can say about it is, even though it probably is only a DVD appearance, it doesn’t seem like that’s all it is. Idk, I’m probably wrong, but I could see WWE sending a superstar over and maybe doing an angle with tna. When ECW invaded WWE in the 90′s, Vince said “Why not get the other guy over while introducing something new to your own product. I would have done the same for WCW if they asked me to.” Once again, I could be wrong.

  • The Ryder Revolution

    Jason wont be to happy about this lol What A Loser that kid is

  • Logan

    Cool. I wonder how TNA will respond to this. Hope they at least talked Sting.
