Sting Says He Can’t Continue Wrestling Much Longer

Below are highlights from Sting’s recent interview with Muscle and Fitness Magazine…

Toughest Opponents: “The best and most memorable feuds were with Rick -sic] and Hulk Hogan. One of the toughest opponents was Kurt Angle. He’s an Olympic gold medalist and they call him “the Wrestling Machine” and that’s exactly what he is. His pace and work ethic in the ring is top notch. There’s nothing he can’t do… Lex Luger, aesthetically he trained to look good like I was doing, but he had freakish strength as well. I saw him squat 500 easily. I saw him bench 405 for reps. It was easy for him. I saw him incline 405. He was just a really strong guy.”

Working Out: “I trained for size. That’s all I was training for. My knees are arthritic now. I don’t have a whole lot of flexibility left. Thankfully, I got smart somehow or another in 1990 and stopped taking steroids – totally stopped. A lot of the guys I ran with all those years continued to take steroids year after year – those guys are having their knees and their hips replaced. I’m not saying everybody who gets their knees and their hips replaced took steroids. I just noticed that the guys who did that were too big, too bulky, too heavy, and the body couldn’t handle it and it took its toll. So that was my one saving grace, but I would train differently now. I’m actually doing pretty good for a guy my age – I just turned 54 – and I’m still hanging in there. I can move a little bit in the ring.”

How Long He Can Continue Working: “I’ve learned not to give a time. I can’t go on wrestling much longer. I’m taking it, literally, one month at a time. I’m under contract until January of next year, so we’ll see what’s happening. I do want to do more movies. I’m looking at a few different things, reality shows being one of them. I’m just trying to move onto the next season of my life. As far as wrestling goes, I’ve stayed away from the creative part of it all these years, I just don’t want to sit in on the meetings and babysit wrestlers and personalities and all that. But, there are things I’d like to see happen in pro wrestling and I may try to make it materialize. I don’t know. “

    I would love see sting vs taker at next year wrestlemania30 in new orleans. sting vs undertaker would be great dream match. We pro wrestling fans wanted for longest time. make it happen hhh!

  • Matt Trovato

    I think he means he’s taking wrestling one month at a time, not signing new contracts every month.

    “I’m taking it, literally, one month at a time. I’m under contract until January of next year, so we’ll see what’s happening.”
    Last time I looked January was longer than a month away.

    Not bad, I like it. Especially Triple H thing, it would be great bc Hunter is the last pure WWF guy from that generation. And I would end it like a double count out or something to where it’s a tie.

  • Pewp

    Or have Triple H (or CM Punk) get the belt, lose it to Sting at the rumble, then have Taker win the rumble.

    Edit: That would give Sting one-time ownership of every relevant belt in North America.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I’m sure there gonna try. Have Sting win the Royal Rumble, but instea of a title shot he wants to wrestle Taker at Wrestlmania!!!!

  • ddfindl

    Contract is up in January, just in time to come to WWE and wrestle ‘Taker… just saying.
