In 2015, the world of professional wrestling witnessed something it never expected to behold – Sting headlining a WrestleMania pay-per-view.
For years – for decades, in fact – WWE fans wanted nothing more than to see the WCW and TNA legend finally set foot into a WWE ring.
But by the end of 2015, the unthinkable would be said by many of these same fans – they wished he had never come to WWE after all.
“Sting’s long awaited run in the WWE was the biggest disappointment of his career, in my opinion,” says wrestling fan Jeff Eckhart.
By Ric Flair’s own admission, if Sting has been with the WWE in the 1980’s there may have never been a Hulk Hogan due to the fact that Sting was so talented, charismatic, and popular with fans.
“We always wanted to see Sting end his career in WWE, but not like this,” Eckhart says, stopping short of blaming Sting for what happened. “WWE should be ashamed of itself for the way they booked this man and how they screwed the fans. Isn’t it something? Maybe Sting should have continued to trust his gut all these years. He always suspected that WWE was a place he couldn’t trust. Maybe he shouldn’t have changed that view.”
Now, for the first time ever, go behind the scenes of Sting’s WWE run and witness first-hand in this compelling and completely unauthorized work just how Sting’s experience may leave the pro wrestling icon regretful about his fateful decision to finally work for WWE.
Featuring lengthy passages from Michael Essany’s “UnconVINCEd: The Unauthorized Story of Why Sting Still Won't Work for Vince McMahon and the WWE,” bestselling author Ian Fineman paints a comprehensive portrait of Sting and what appears to be the unfortunate final chapter in his storied career.
