Legendary wrestling writer Bill Apter wrote a column published on WWE.com this week looking at Sting, “The Face of WCW.” The publication of the column on the WWE website is again fueling speculation that the company is close to signing Sting.
With the debut of the WWE Network looming next week, news involving Sting could be a driver to subscription sales. The network’s programming includes countless hours of classic content, including wcw content that revolved around Sting and his various feuds with Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen and the nWo.
The Apter column chronicles Sting’s beginnings in the Continental Wrestling Association as one-half of The Blade Runners (with the future Ultimate Warrior) to Mid-South and then later to wcw.
“More than 25 years since he became a good guy,” Apter wrote, “Sting is still a presence in the ring, as well as at numerous charity events. He’s a true legend with a constant drive to always be one step better than the day before. His best days may still be yet to come.”
Oh, yeah. Sting is coming.
