Sting and Hogan couldn't help TNA even when it was somewhat established.
They would want to create their own stars and moments. Something like Roode's title run and the other less famous Austin beating him.
He didn't want to put Lesnar over because he thought it was money to have the match on a PPV. In fact, losing on a ppv instead of a episode of raw is the opposite of being egotistical. TNA probably wouldn't have been able to pay him and I doubt he would have wanted to go there.
