In another interview with the Daily Star, Sting discussed a few hot topics related to TNA. Here are the highlights:

The Jeff Hardy situation:
“I love Jeff Hardy. I don’t want to do anything to harm him. He has personal issues, everyone knows that. But some things are true and some are not. What is true is that it all came to a head that week and hit really big that night.

I hated what happened because I wanted to give the fans a great match. But I realize it had to happen the way it did. And after all was said and done, I came to the back and made sure he was OK. He is OK and he’s been talking to people close to him a lot. Jeff is getting stronger. He’s riding 10 miles a day on his mountain bike to get in condition, I hear! Good luck to him.”

Choosing between TNA and WWE:
“The whole thing was shocking to me. To make a long story short, it was all down to miscommunication. If you turn the clock back when WWE and Vince bought WCW and wrestling ended the way it ended for me, it was horrible. There was potential for that to happen again this time.

The last things I did were the TV tapings for TNA in October and I had every intention of coming back in January this year. But we were not coming to any kind of agreement contractually. We had to work through those things and right up to my return itself, I thought it wasn’t going to happen.”

The current state and future growth of TNA:
“I believe that fans will look back on 2011 as special for TNA. Some critics on the internet despise TNA. And as a wrestler, I am never going to be able to please the guys who want to get rid of the dinosaur but I don’t read those things too much. If I did, I’d probably shoot myself!

What matters is the crowd in the arena. I think we have to take Impact and PPVs on the road. There have been times which were almost surreal when I’ve thought, wow it’s like time stood still. But as long as we don’t lose sight of reality, our audience will continue to grow.”
