He didn't stick around long enough to answer any follow up questions, so his status for Wrestlemania 32 is still unknown. Sting also refused to answer a question about Hulk Hogan.

It made a lot of sense on several levels. For starters, the two of them had one of the greatest rivalries in the history of professional wrestling. Flair helped put Sting on the map. The move also makes sense because Flair is a great talker and is still popular with fans.

In a very interesting move, TNA has started seeking potential investors. Dixie Carter doesn't want the company to simply exists. Instead, she wants to see it grow.
