We noted over the weekend that Hulk Hogan was pushing for a match against John Cena at WrestleMania. Over the weekend he was also pushing for a match against Stone Cold Steve Austin. Hogan was pretty negative on the few matches that he had in TNA because of the bad shape his back was in.
The old saying in wrestling is never say never but Austin doesn't seem to want to do another match.
In regards to Sting's status it's the same story you've heard already...he's "very close" to signing a deal with WWE. Sting was flown to Stamford, CT to meet with Vince McMahon for the first time. Sting said that he may have met Vince for a brief second many years ago at a NATPE convention but he's not sure. He was shown around and introduced to employees and shown how the company operates. WWE doesn't usually do that unless they are pretty sure they have a deal.
