• I was underwhelmed by WCW Legend Sting’s WWE run, says WWE Hall Of Famer & AEW Commentator Jim Ross

During a recent edition of Grillin’ JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer and current AEW commentator Jim Ross talked about Sting’s short run in WWE.

Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:

“I was underwhelmed by Sting’s WWE run. I thought that he should have come in guns blazing and had to give the fans a chance to tap into his passion and his emotions. He was a big star.

I don’t think he was ever given the credit in WWE for being the star that he was. And many speculated, it may have been because you know, the WWE didn’t ‘create’ Sting.”
