Goldberg on Sting signing with WWE

4

"It’s a guy like Sting. It’s a guy like me that makes decisions not based upon wrestling logic, but based upon individual needs and desires. There’s a lot that plays into these things. It’s taken him this long to be a member of the WWE. He’s surely not going to make a hasty decision about anything."

From his interview with CBS Atlanta. It's still expected Sting will come in for at least one more match, possibly at WrestleMania. But as we've seen in the past, nothing is for sure.

Rockstar Spud on Bully Ray leaving TNA

"It would be a tremendous loss if Bully Ray had to depart from TNA, but let's see who is going to step up and take that place. This is the wrestling business, when one opportunity falls away, it's another opportunity for somebody else. So it would be good to see who steps up from there, but if he leaves the company, would I be disappointed? Absolutely, but like I said, it would be interesting to see who stepped into that role."

From his interview with AlternativeNation.net. That's a great attitude but is there a viable replacement of Ray's level on the TNA roster?
