Sting Talks Post-Retirement Plans, the WWE WrestleMania 31 Loss, His Career


– WWE Hall of Famer Sting spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard site after an appearance at a Big Time Wrestling event this weekend. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

Not worrying about the finish to his WrestleMania 31 match against Triple H:

“People took the loss personally, but in this business, you have to learn real quick not to take anything that personally. For me, it was a memory just being in Levi Stadium in California, my home state, with that crowd there. There was so much nostalgia with having DX and the NWO all together at WrestleMania. I can’t tell you how many pictures I’ve signed of all of us in the ring. Fans talked about that and loved it.”

His career:

“I never would have imagined I’d be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame or wrestled at WrestleMania. The first time I stepped foot into the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, I saw Hulk Hogan and Andre and all those big names, and thirty years later, I wrestled for the world title. It’s a been a three decade connection with the fans, and I’ve always said I’m very humbled by it. After thirty years, I’m more humbled than I’ve ever been.”

His plans now:

“I’m going to kick back. I’ll pick and choose some events, but I won’t be traveling as much. These grassroots shows remind me of my humble beginnings–even the smell of the building reminds me when I started. It’s an honor to still be in front of the fans.”
