Brock· Super Moderator Going Backwards With WF
Credit to JokerFC on another forum for this, but i read it and thought "Spot fucking on", and thought id post it here:
Im appreciate Sting is a nice guy who was just going with the flow, and had personal issues at the time, but even so when its analysed like that, its quite sad how it all played out.I have often lamented the awfulness of how Starrcade 97 went down and it is awful.but whats worse is the subsequent misuse of Sting to the point where he is a midcarder(and in the nWo) by mid 98.
Starrcade 97."wins"in an dreadfully booked affair.not what people were expecting from this dream match.....and then has to give the fucking title up on the next night's Nitro.
but WCW still has a chance to recoup and get going again right?
Souled Out 98:Sting wasn't featured on the PPV....... ???
but there's still time to salvage Sting and make him look like a credible threat to ending the nWo right??
Superbrawl VIII:Sting vs Hogan II!!!Sting wins the belt finally......with help from Randy Savage.so Sting CANT get it done on his own....2 PPVs on record to show that now..... :
but now Hogans out of the picture its Stings time to shine as champ.right???
Uncensored 98:Sting defeats Hall in an 8 minute "effort" in a match that not the main event of the card.a rematch from WMV(9 years prior)headlines the card while Sting lops around with mid card man Hall.
then the destruction continues......
Spring Stampede 98:Sting loses the title to Savage after Nash interferes in a match allotted a mere 10 minutes after interference from Nash
ah well-maybe Sting is better chasing the title yeah?
Slamboree 98:Sting and The Giant defeat the Outsiders for the tag titles.at least it main evented the show......it is worth noting however that Hogan wasn't on this show.
Great American Bash 98:Sting beats Giant in 6 minutes to wrest control of the tag belts from him.he chooses his new nWo(outfit he swore to destroy) Wolfpac stablemate Kevin Nash(man who cost him world title 2 months previous)to be his new co champ.
Bash at the Beach 98:Sting doesn't make the card dominated by Hogan/Rodman vs DDP/Malone
Road Wild 98:Sting features in the "epic" 8 minute battle royal to determine ?.
Fall Brawl 98:Sting features on Team Wolfpac in the disastrous War Games match.......
Halloween Havoc 98:Sting gets defeated by Bret Hart in a (very good)match for the US title.yes the 2 hottest men in pro wrestling at the start of 98 are scrapping it out for the now nearly meaningless US title while a rematch from WM6 8 years earlier gets all the build.
an injured Sting doesn't appear until Spring 99.....
so how does it look laid out in front of you like this?horrifying isn't it?
