He explains in this video why he didn't go:
I understand where he's coming from but I don't think Vince would've misused Sting that badly. Sting in the WWE had money written all over it at the time Vince bought WCW. Vince wasn't completely out of touch with the fan base back then either, so he knew bringing in Sting would've been huge and would make money. Vince would've have never let that opportunity slip away. I think Sting would've gotten at least one run as world champ and probably a couple good reigns as IC/US champ or with the tag titles if he wrestled for them some time between 2002 and 2006.
Unfortunately, it seems that Sting is his own worst enemy when it came to going to the WWE. Vince would no doubt welcome him with open arms if Sting ever decides to make a deal.
