"Sting Revealed" - WCW Magazine #69 [January 2001]
One of the cooler features during the final years of WCW Magazine were the “Uncensored Q&A” sections, which were extensive non-kayfabe interviews with various WCW wrestlers. Nothing seems to be off-limits as past storylines are usually discussed along with items like wrestler pushes, career highs/lows, and even the World Wrestling Federation or Vince McMahon usually comes up. I’ll get around to transcribing one of these interviews soon, but for now, here’s a snippet of Sting discussing his feud with Vampiro:
“[WCW Magazine] When you were pitted against Vampiro during the New Blood vs Millionaires Club angle, there were some who suggested the two of you didn’t work well together. Your thoughts?
[Sting] I have nothing personal against Vampiro. He and I have talked about it and I’ve been straight up with him. I told him there just wasn’t chemistry there. It wasn’t his fault, it wasn’t my fault; I’m not pointing the finger at anybody. For whatever reason, it just didn’t work. I tried everything I could do — we did videos and vignettes. At the end, I finally said, if the bookers or writers are trying to make a new Sting, sensing that Sting has lost his drive or whatever, and they want to capitalize on another painted face around here and they want to make Vampiro that guy, then fine. But let him go off and do his thing by himself. He probably stands a better chance without me involved. Originally, they had Vampiro as a babyface aligned with me, and I think that would have been good if they had continued that storyline. That story could have been something that people could sink their teeth into. Instead, he was slapped up on me, just as Kidman was slapped up onto Hogan, and so on. They wanted to make stars overnight, I guess. But you had guys with very high “Q” ratings and guys with very low “Q” ratings. They were trying to give guys the rub and bring them up, but what happens is that it brings the guys on top down.”
I’d love to hear The Stinger openly discuss his career, but he’s a seemingly private guy that doesn’t dish out this kind of information regularly. So, to read him come across as a guy worried about his spot AND critical of incoming talent is completely foreign to me.
Pretty great read overall, I’ll have it online here next Monday.
I didn’t want to be the one to forget
I thought of everything I’d never regret
A little time with you is all that I get
That’s all we need because it’s all we can take
One thing I never see the same when you’re ‘round
I don’t believe in him — his lips on the ground
I wanna take you to that place in the “Roche”
But no one gives us any time anymore
He ask me once if I’d look in on his dog
You made an offer for it, then you ran off
I got this picture of us kids in my head
And all I hear is the last thing that you said
‘I listened to your problems
Now listen to mine’
I didn’t want to anymore
And we will never be alone again
Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
Cause I know it unlocks like a door
Some more again
It didn’t matter what they wanted to see
He thought he saw someone that looked just like me
The summer memory that just never dies
We worked too long and hard to give it no time
He sees right through me, it’s so easy with lies
Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise
He runs his scissor at the seam in the wall
He cannot break it down or else he would fall
1,000 lonely stars
Hiding in the cold
Take it, oh I don’t wanna sing anymore
Cause I don’t know what else I…
I don’t understand, don’t get upset I’m not with you…
We’re swimming around, it’s all I do,
When I’m with you
Beating Zelda II: The Adventures of Link really put me on a nostalgic kick for everything Hyrule related. The best part about this current obsession is that Nintendo has all of their The Legend of Zelda games easily available through out their current systems, something that cannot be said for other Nintendo dynasty series…
Once I tear through The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, it might finally be time for me to get through Majora’s Mask. Hell, I even found the old Nintendo Power player’s guide to help guide me to 100 percent for it — might as well actually beat it for once.
Gimme this on a shirt ASAP!
I made this dumb photoshop months ago right before The Goldbergs premiered on ABC and actually ended up getting a response from the series creator:
If there’s no Bill Goldberg cameo in an upcoming episode then all is wrong with the world…
I think I got my night figured out.
I don’t understand why this is a real shirt, but it totally is and it could be yours for less than five bucks! This is, seriously, the easiest video game cosplay you could ever do!

Got another piece for the Christmas tree in from eBay today — Hogan Claus is everything I could’ve wanted, brother!
