Sting: Chose TNA Return over WM Bout with Undertaker
TNA legend Sting (a/k/a Steve Borden) recently spoke with Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun’s Ring Posts blog, here’s a transcript of the main talking points from the interview:
About the Jeff Hardy Debacle at Victory Road
“I want to be careful with my words here because I really like Jeff Hardy,” Sting said. “I’m hoping he can come back because that guy is so talented, but he has personal issues in his life and it just became too much for him, too overwhelming, and he just couldn’t cope and didn’t know how to handle it.
“So he made some bad choices and he’s having to deal with those choices and the consequences now. I hear he’s doing much, much better. Last I heard, he was riding his bike 10 miles a day and just getting in great shape and his life was getting in some kind of order…
Sting was also asked whether it’s true that no one seemed to know what was going on with Hardy at Victory Road until shortly before the match. “That’s pretty accurate. I’d say a good 45 minutes to an hour before the match actually happened, things started to deteriorate, and I just went, “Oh, boy.” I kept hoping maybe somehow or another he’ll come to his senses and snap out of it, but it didn’t happen. It was just out of hand and I didn’t have a choice other than to do what I did.” Read more of this post
