New WWE Hall of Famer Sting spoke with Sports Illustrated and revealed whether he was bothered by losing to Triple H at WrestleMania 31. “People took the loss personally, but in this business, you have to learn real quick not to take anything that personally,” Sting said. “For me, it was a memory just being in Levi Stadium in California, my home state, with that crowd there.”
Sting also noted that he is under a WWE Legends contract, yet will continue to make non-wrestling independent appearances. “I’m going to kick back,” said Sting regarding his future plans. “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.” Read the full interview at SI.com.
