It Came From YouTube: Sting The Evil Mastermind

12 Submitted by on Fri, 24 May 2013, 10:06

Crapper Paul S. (who is making my job awfully easy lately) sent this in and he writes thusly:

Sting’s heel turn at Fall Brawl ’99 lasted barely two months but WCW sure tried their best to convince us that Sting was in fact the evil mastermind behind everything bad that happened in WCW the last 3 years.

I like to think the guy who did this video went on to do “Loose Change.”

Also I love that they accuse Sting of being the driver of the MYSTERIOUS WHITE HUMMMER because he was once seen coming out of a completely different Hummer.

Ah yes, the Sting heel turn! Another one of WCW’s brilliant ideas because it was a SWERVE!

And the Hummer angle… Oof! That was so drawn-out and I don’t think we ever actually got a resolution to it.

R.D has inducted both the Sting heel turn and the Hummer angle both with very good reason.

    I thought that was one of the stupidest heel turns ever. I never bought Sting as a heel during that time. Honestly, I wasn’t watching during other times that he could have been a heel, but he didn’t convince me as such.

    I honestly don’t even remember this.

    Which you think I would, because “He came out of one and attacked Rick Steiner. Remember?”

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      There’s all sorts of stuff from the last 3 years of WCW that I don’t remember, either. I think it’s because they were throwing so much crap against the wall.

    “He was draped in black, but was the blackest part his heart?”
    That’s what you call a douchechilling line.

  4. Autrach Sejanoz says:

    Did anyone else notice that Sting’s holding the belt upside-down?

  5. Jeremy says:

    I love how absurd this all is. Because he turned his back on Hogan? The same Hogan who had turned his back 3 years earlier? And the same Hogan who one day turned face again because Flair had a biased referee in a title match. How could Sting do such a thing and not forgive the Hulkster for the past 3 years of destroying the company he helped build. This was really a stretch, like WWE treating Triple H as a face no matter how much of a prick he acts like or anybody turning heel against Cena for completely justifiable reasons but being treated like the biggest crybaby by announcers.

    Is it the bogus Sting? Or is it the bogus Sting, who is being directed by the real Sting? Or maybe it’s Freedom Fighter Flash, fighting for the freedom of……Evil!

    the ‘white hummer’ angle was concluded with Eric Bishoff being the driver I believe. this was just before he and Hogan took off after Russo swerved them by cutting a promo about Hogan being a dinosaur.

  8. Unknown says:

    Don’t blame Cena for some of this. Reportedly, he wanted to turn heel in 2006 to refresh his character (that would have been awesome, IMO) but the WWE higher-ups slapped him down.

  9. Unknown says:

    Pat Patterson once told Ricky Steamboat that he could attack Hogan with a chainsaw and the fans would still not boo him (Steamboat). If anything, I think fans were rooting for Sting, since he’d been with the company from the founding and hadn’t left.
