• Sting Reveals Which Wrestler He Never Had Any Chemistry With
During a recent appearance at Awesome Con, WWE Hall of Famer Sting talked about working with Mick Foley in WCW, which wrestler he never had any chemistry with in the ring & more.
Below are the highlights:
On working with Mick Foley [Cactus Jack] in WCW:
“Cactus was a fun guy to work with. He was a great personality outside of the ring as well. Talk about somebody who sacrificed his body – I mean I have stories about him. In Germany, against Vader… I have stories about him in Atlanta with me. Some of the things that he did and hearing the sound of his body and his flesh hitting the pavement from I don’t know how many feet, I mean just ridiculous!
I was in Germany by the way when he wrestled Vader and you could see him wrestling and you could see the end of the match. You can see blood coming off the side of Mick’s head. He thought he got busted open somehow and no big deal but the next thing you know a ring announcer comes walking into the dressing room with half of an ear or three-quarters of an ear in his hands.
The thing is I have my ears. And I went yep…That’s an ear! It was Cactus Jack’s! I mean he came back in the dressing room and said something like, ‘BANG BANG’ and that was it. I think he wanted to have that thing preserved somehow in some kind of liquid. They didn’t want to let him do it.
A lot of fun working with Cactus. I loved his creativity. His willingness to just try stuff and do something different, step out of the box.”
On working with Abyss in TNA:
“I loved working with Abyss. I mean the casket match and some other stuff – I still see him three or four times a year. I just saw him at WrestleMania 35.
He’s working with WWE now and doing a good job for them. I loved those matches with him and every time he sees me he says: ‘Sting, the best matches I ever had were against you.’ Wow, that’s a big compliment!”
On never having any chemistry with Vampiro in the ring:
“I just couldn’t make that thing clear. I just could not figure out a way, and I was giving him permission to step over the line and do things that I wouldn’t allow anyone else to do over the years.
I told him I to call me by my real name… see if that’ll get through. See if it’ll create something. Nothing. There was no chemistry there whatsoever, I mean nothing. It was just a bomb. A bomb of all bombs.”
