WWE Hall Of Famer Sting was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated at WrestleCon earlier this month. Here are the highlights:
On never wrestling The Undertaker:
“There was a worldwide desire to see that match. It was a dream match for me, too.
“I regret not being able to get in the ring with him one time. It would have been great, but I’m OK with the way it turned out.”
On what WWE stars he watches:
“I’m always interested in what ‘Taker’s doing, and Seth, of course. I have some bragging rights because my career ended with him – so Seth, ‘Taker, I’m always paying attention to those two.”
On what it takes to succeed in pro wrestling:
“For me, it took almost 30 years. You’ve got to have your game face on, 24-7, that’s for sure, and be totally and completely committed in every possible way. You have to understand how to deal with the public and how to speak to the public. You have to work on your physique. You’ve got to have longevity, so you’ve got to be able to work through injuries. You’ve got to do all those things, otherwise you’re not going to be WWE-caliber. It takes a lot of effort.”
