I just think somebody having an idea for a direction of a character deserve the applause for it, even if it is a rip of something going around at the time.
I guess Scott Hall can take credit for pushing him in that direction, yeah. It just shows how lame Sting must've been, though, as he was clearly so devoid of ideas for himself that somebody else actually had to come up with the idea of him plagiarizing a famous movie character! He couldn't even come up with that all by himself! Damn! Sting really sucks. Whose idea was it for him to rip off The Joker? I'm genuinely surprised that James O'Barr never sued over likeness rights. I'd be really pissed off if a character that I'd created was parodied by some half-wit wrestler who couldn't think of an original gimmick all by himself (or even with help).
