The Phoenix New Times is featuring an interview with TNA wrestler Sting where he talks about the Aces and Eights storyline on television and how much longer he plans to wrestle.
On the Aces and Eights storyline and any concerns on the payoff:
“That is always a concern and I’ve been on both sides of the fence when there’s been a big buildup happening and there was not a payoff and there’s nothing worse, believe me. But, man, when the payoff is there and delivery is made, its awesome. Only time will tell. My hands have not really been around this one like in the past because it’s not about me. I just want to try to make it as good as I possibly can.”
If he felt the storyline feels too close to the “Sons of Anarchy” television show:
“Yeah…I do have a lot to say about that but, you know, I just need to play it safe for right now. I can say that we were real close to needing S.A.G. cards, you know? (laughs) We need to be with the guild here if we keep going like this.”
On how much longer he plans to wrestle at his age:
“You know, this is an honest answer. That question comes [up] about once a year and its a legitimate question. Every year I think, “How long am I going to do this?” And its one of those play it by ear and see what happens kind of things. The last year was a lot of fun for me. I had fun changing my character up again. Some people liked it, some people didn’t. But the bottom line is, I had fun doing it. Just trying something different. To step way out of my comfort zone and try to change and tweak and move with the times and be new and refreshing. As long as there’s little glimpses of that happening every now and then, I’ll hang out as long as they’ll have me, I guess.”
