"It's a dream match that fans would want to see. It was close. I'm glad things turned out the way they did," Sting said.
"There are so many variables. Let's just say that I turned it down for the same reasons I always have. Something in me never trusted what would happen up there, based entirely on the track record with other WCW guys and everything that went on after Vince bought WCW."
This shows that Sting was indeed approached by Vince and turned it down due to the treatment of previous World Championship Wrestling stars like Scott Hall, Diamond Dallas Page, Scott Steiner, Billy Kidman, Buff Bagwell and, for many years, Booker T.
Really, Sting? So it's better to be in a company that is on a downward spiral then to wrestle Taker and be inducted into the HoF?
The WCW stars weren't screwed over, but it's just an easy excuse for people like Sting.
If he cared about how WCW stars were treated why did his people contact WWE when he became available?
Didn't care then, did he?
It's easier to pretend he's taking a moral stand, than admitting he's 52, and wouldn't be a top draw if he ever went to WWE. What did he expect? They were going to put him over Stone Cold, and the Rock?
Stone Cold, the most popular Superstar in (post-Hogan) history, and Sting expected to go over him? It was never going to happen, so he took his ball and went home.
