TNA Superstar Sting on Battling Aces and Eights, Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape Drama, and the Possibility of Someday Jumping to WWE

When it comes to the professional wrestling world, there are few bigger icons than Sting. Both a living legend and general of the ring, he's been a part of the business for more than 25 years and has held more than 12 world championships in that time.

Currently one of the venerated members of Total Nonstop Action (a.k.a. WWE's chief rival in the wrestling world), Sting is gearing up for a match-up with the dastardly team of Aces and Eights at TNA's Bound for Glory pay-per-view, which takes place at Grand Canyon University Arena. Jackalope Ranch spoke with Sting via telephone yesterday and got his thoughts on his big match, as well as his feelings about Aces and Eights, the possibility of retiring from wrestling, and his reaction to the recent controversy involving fellow TNA star Hulk Hogan and his sex tape.
