On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, WCW Legend Eric Bischoff spoke about Sting’s 2014-2015 WWE run, that ended with an injury in the main event of the Night of Champions 2015 pay-per-view.

Prior to arriving in WWE at the Survivor Series 2014 PPV, Sting had no intentions to ever join Vince McMahon’s promotion, as he thought that former WCW guys more often than not, just wouldn’t get pushed properly there.

Here’s what Eric Bischoff had to say about Sting’s WWE days:

“I was really happy for him. I started to get a little bit concerned when it was going to be a match because I just wasn’t convinced that Steve should be doing a match.

It was the injuries, his age, having been off for a long time. Those are a lot of odds that are stacking against you, no matter who you are.

I’d been a lot happier to see him getting inducted into the Hall of Fame, get his ‘just due’ and the respect that he deserved, and kinda leave it at that.

Regardless of whether he’d have gone over or not. To me, that didn’t matter nearly as much.

Is this how you want people to remember your last match? I was disappointed.”

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.
