During a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, WCW Legend Eric Bischoff revealed that he lost touch with former 12-time World Heavyweight Champion Sting over the years.
Here’s what Eric had to say:
“We got very close, obviously the Sturgis motorcycle rally stuff, we rode a lot together and all that.
I just kinda removed myself from the world of wrestling. Anybody that really knows me pretty well, including my family, knows I’m just not good on the phone.
I kinda lost touch with Sting, not over an issue or anything, just kinda went our separate ways.”
Sting wrestled for Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) / Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1987 until AOL Time Warner sold the company in March 2001.
He then chose not to join the World Wrestling Federation. He signed with Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) instead, where he became a full-time Superstar from 2006 until 2014.
The Icon finally joined WWE and made his debut at the 2014 Survivor Series PPV, but had to retire from active pro wrestling after an injury at the Night of Champions 2015 pay-per-view.
By the time he was cleared to wrestle again, his obvious dream match opponent The Undertaker retired. Sting then cut all ties with WWE and decided to join Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in December 2020.
