The following is a personal story from my childhood that is wrestling related in the most unusual way imaginable. In hindsight, if you look at it from the perspective of a black nine-year-old who grew up in an all-white neighborhood, it’s quite funny.
During my formative years, the only thing that rivaled my love for bear hugs and body slams were four brothers from the sewers of New York City. WWE Hall of Famer Sting and Nickelodeon announced at New York Comic Con that WWE and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have joined forces for an action figure collaboration titled Ninja Superstars.

Seth Rollins will not only defend the U.S. title against John Cena at Night of Champions, but on the very same night he will also defend the World Heavyweight title against Sting. Yes, in 2015, Sting, the franchise player of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), is headlining a WWE pay-per-view. The odds aren’t in his favor to walk out of Houston with the gold due to his age and the fact that he has been only wrestling part-time. The thing is, though, that he needs to win the title.

It took 13 years, but Sting finally appeared on WWE television in an official capacity. Albeit it was in a commercial for the company’s 2K15 video game, but it was still cool to see something after months of speculation. Gamers will be happy to have the WCW icon as a full-fledged character in the game as opposed to taking tedious amounts of time to create him. I really enjoyed this commercial. The violinists playing Sting’s original crow theme as he emerged from the shadows was very well done. I can’t get that song out of my head as I’ve been humming it since Monday. The next logical step in this promotion’s progression should culminate with an in-ring appearance. Then again, that might be just a pipe dream.

In honor of the RoboCop reboot hitting movie theaters today, I feel it’s only appropriate to reminisce about one of wrestling’s greatest moments. Ok, I’m joking. People hated it and its widely considered the most preposterous publicity stunt in the history of wrestling. As a nine-year-old kid who thought wrestling was real, I loved it. My imagination ran wild with possibilities as the cybernetic law enforcement officer found a new partner in a man called Sting. Continue reading “RoboCop Saves Sting From The Four Horsemen”
Mother’s Day has come and gone and one of the memories that stands out to me is the time my Mom and I saw WCW Monday Nitro at the Fleetcenter in Boston. It was my sophomore year of high school and my best friend was grounded the Friday before the event. Throughout the weekend, my Mom kept hinting that she would like to go with me but what teenager wants to do have their Mom tag along with them to a wrestling event? I pretended to not pick up on the hints because I was sure I’d find someone to go with…yeah, not so much. Monday arrived and no sooner did I turn the door knob to leave for the train station did my Mom ask if I had found anyone to go with. I shrugged it off and told her I decided to go by myself. “Oh…well, have fun” was her reply in a disappointing tone that immediately made me feel guilty for pretending I had no idea she wanted to go. I turned to her and in my bratty teenage vernacular I said “I guess you can come with me, if you really want to”.
I try not to be one of those people who constantly bash TNA but their booking is at the height of idicoracy. Last night’s episode of Impact Wrestling was built around Sting trying to convince Dixie Carter to hire Hulk Hogan back to run the company. Sting must be suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dixie Carter must have the worst case of short term memory in human history. Why would remotely you consider having Hulk Hogan run your company after the year he just put you through? Oh, you don’t remember? Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?
