    From his twitter.

    I hope this is just a work. (I think that’s the terminology). He was one of the major reasons I watch TNA.

    Although, even if this is a work, it will still be a very sad day when the Icon packs it in. :(

    Shame, really he should be an on screen personality only. His in ring work has suffered immensley though he's still 10 times better than Hogan. I could live with him becoming the GM of Impact because I think he does that really well.

    I really think sting should jump to wwe have a year run as an on air personality not neccessarily a wrestler and then join the hall of fame in 2013. Even if sting never does work for vince he has a spot for sure in the hall of fame. Sting was one of the few reasons i watched nitro in late 90s to watch his feud with the nwo. I agree it will be a sad day when he walks away.

    As he said himself, he should work at at least one Wrestlemania - and who wouldn't want to see him collide with say, the Undertaker?

    I wouldnt loss any sleep if it didnt happen. I think i'm probably one of VERY few who doesnt want Sting in the WWE. I'm also not the biggest fan of wrestlers who have never performed for the WWE being inducted into the Hall of Fame, kinda defeats the object.

    My argument to that would be simply sting had alot more impact on the industry then alot of the guys already in. That would incline to say that koko b ware is more deserving. That doesnt make sense to me. In the late 80s sting was the nwa/wcw answer to hogan. He had the look, charisma, and the popularity of a hogan. Sting shined through the entire decade of the 90s for the most part and is still going strong as a character.

    I understand what you're saying completely, but what im saying is that he hasnt had any impact in the WWE, none what so ever, so he shouldnt be inducted. It's like saying Ronaldinho should be inducted into the Manchester United Hall of Fame, he's never been there, but he's had such an impact on football. Just doesnt work for me.

    Yeah i completely agree with ya on your point, but i think wrestling is different. 20 years ago you could have an nwa, awa, ecw, and any other territory hall of fame for each territory. The problem is all but one of those territories is left and you have tna which has alot of guys whose major impacts were in organizations that no longer exist. That is why sting should go in because he was the franchise guy of wcw, very similar to jon cena in alot of ways. I cant see leaving sting out of a hall of fame ceremony simply because there is no wcw to induct him into. The wwe hall of fame is it.

    Terry funk didnt do much in wwe/wwf, his career is based from nwa, ecw and alot of japan. His brother dory funk was even less known for being a wwe star. Vern gagne never wrestled in wwe and got inducted for his impact in the awa. Dusty rhodes primary work was nwa, only had about a year and a half run in wwe. Its these reasons that sting should still go in.

    The WWE HOF can be construed as a general pro wrestling HOF, really. Guys from outside the company, or who made their mark outside the company get in if they feel like it.

    Point is, they dont have any actual rules for eligibility other than who they feel like putting in, so trying to argue that they should exclude someone based on a rule you made up is pretty pointless.

    Yeah, the HOF is pretty much made up of who Vince feels like inducting - Savage wouldn't have gone in had he not died - and can you seriously tell me that Randy Savage shouldn't have been one of the first inductees?

    For impact alone you'd argue Goldberg deserves a place, as would Sting and many others who shone elsewhere than under Vince. How about Chyna (who did have a huge impact on womens' wrestling before she lost her marbles)

    But some are not liked (burnt their bridges) by WWE management, and ultimately that regardless of their accomplishments determines whether they go in or not.

    And that really is a shame. Either it's the WWE (and only WWE) HOF - Or it's the Wrestling HOF, It cannot be both.

    sting

    Well I think Sting was a very good talent when he was WCW, but I feel he had made the dumbest move in history by not moving to WWE. He could of been where The Undertaker is, hell he would be putting him away instead of HHH.Ii mean he was awesome in WCW even though WWF/WWE was better in my eyes, but he could be awesome there because they were number 2.If you ask me TNA is shit they will never be better than WWE, WCW or ECW.

    I think there's this picture that WWE is the wrestling holy land and everyone wants to be a part of it but if you believe it or not; some wrestlers are happy where they are, working a schedule that suits them. Sometimes the pay off isn't the most important factor.

    Plus Sting has always stated he didn't want to go to the WWE where he'd have almost no control over how he was used.

    I made the first post more readable, but I have honest to God no clue what the second is meant to say. Lonnie could you please be more aware of forum rules, text talk isnt allowed. And try to make your posts readable please. Cheers.

    Also we all know how Vince treats stars made elsewhere. It's a crying shame from the fans' perspective, but you can't argue that Sting hasn't had one hell of a career.

    I just dont agree with the fact that wrestlers who havent even BEEN in the WWE can be considered for a place in their Hall of Fame. Sure Sting & Goldberg were huge stars in WCW, Sting more than Goldberg obviously, but Goldberg was a huge flop in WWE and Sting hasn't even been there! There are far more deserving people that top the list above those 2, Abdullah The Butcher definitely NOT being one of them.

    I agree with you. A Wrestling HOF yes, definitely.
