• “This guy is gonna get a reaction, right?” – Vince McMahon On Sting’s WWE Debut In 2014
During an interview on Busted Open Radio, Attitude Era Legend Road Dogg revealed what Vince McMahon asked backstage officials about Sting debuting in WWE in 2014.
Below is what the D-Generation X member said:
“Vince did not act like he knew who Sting was, or he knew of Sting’s gravitas.
He literally asked us, ‘Is he over?’ I don’t know if it was a performance or if it’s real, but if it was a performance, he deserves an Oscar.
I feel like he just didn’t watch that. I think he was so laser focused on his stuff that stuff outside his bubble doesn’t compute.
He literally asked us multiple times, ‘this guy is gonna get a reaction, right?’”
Vince definitely knew who Sting was back in 2001 when he bought WCW.
During an interview on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Sting said the following about his conversation with Vince before he joined TNA Wrestling:
“I said, ‘Vince, I’m going to TNA.’ He said, ‘The thought of you and the legacy you leave behind and you going to TNA is just…BLAGH!’ He literally said, ‘BLAGH!’”
