TNA star was recently interviewed by Brandon Baxter of Jonesboro, Arkansas’ 101.7 Kiss FM. Here are some highlights of what said about:

Why He Has Stayed With TNA:

“It’s the same answer every time and that is the brand, just love the brand,” Sting said. “It reminded me of the old school WCW and actually launching Monday Nitro and becoming the talk of the town and then talk of the whole wide world, and I saw the same potential here with this group of guys and everyone behind the scenes as well.”

What Has Kept Him Wrestling This Long:

“Man, the crowd,” he said. “The crowd is always the ticket, always the key there. I have always had a relationship with the crowd for so many years and, man, any wrestler who denies that is lying to you. The crowd matters. It’s also the guys and the group of people we have and trying to accomplish something, to get the name and brand out there.”

Other topics include his toughest opponent, working with Ric Flair, the origins of his face paint and more. Here’s audio the full interview:
