Sting blogs on Warrior: With rare photo


sting warriorSting doesn’t post to his official Facebook page that often. He broke his social media silence this morning with a post on the passing of Ultimate Warrior.

“Mourning the loss of Jim Hellwig. I don’t believe anyone has ever published this picture before today. The snapshot was taken two days before Thanksgiving in 1985, as we prepared to leave my house in Newhall, California and embark on a career in wrestling.

“Jim always challenged me to strive at being the best, and I’ll forever be grateful for the encouragement and motivation he provided.

“I was looking forward to catching up with him, and I’m saddened we didn’t have that opportunity before he passed. My heart goes out to his wife Dana and their two daughters, and they will remain in my prayers.”


More news on Sting: Pro Championship Wrestling in Chicago announced that Sting will be appearing at its Dream Night 13 event on June 21 in Oaklawn, Ill. Super Tickets for the event to meet Sting are $425.
