It is hard to believe that Sting and the Ultimate Warrioronce wrestled as The Freedom Fighters (Warrior was known as Justice and Sting was called Flash) in Memphis’ Continental Wrestling Association under manager Dutch Mantell.
TNA Hall of Famer Sting recently spoke to MuscleandFitness about new DVD with Brian Bosworth, “Revelation Road.” Here are some highlights of what he said about:
Becoming “Born Again” In 1998: “In August of 1998 my life was turned upside down. I gave my life to Jesus Christ who became my Lord and Savior, right at the peak of my career where I had all the money and power and fame you could ever want. It’s just like in this movie. God kept trying to reach me, to open my eyes. And I was like, “Don’t talk to me about Jesus. My life is fine.” But in August of 1998, I had a moment of truth with a confession I made to my wife. There was drugs, alcohol, adultery, the whole package, and I wound up coming clean and confessing it all.”
TNA Hall of Famer Sting appeared on Kentucky Sports Radio on WKJK-AM 1080 over the weekend. Here are some highlights:
- It was mentioned that Sting’s Son, Steven Borden, is a LB for the University of Kentucky.
- They hyped the TNA Impact taping in Louisville for July 18 and the TNA Base Brawl event in Lexington this Saturday before the interview. Sting said fans would see some of the best in a different setting.
- Sting said he’s not really focused on capturing the TNA World title at this time.
- When asked who his dream opponents would be, Sting mentioned the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.
- He named his 3 favorite matches of all time: Clash of Champions I vs Ric Flair, Great American Bash 1990 vs Ric Flair, Starrcade 1997 vs Hulk Hogan.
- Sting says he’s never seen the movie “The Wrester” in its entirety. He’s seen parts of it, which he said showed the seedy side of the industry. However, he did say the industry has cleaned up a lot and says Mickey Rourke did a great job.

The refined gentlemen in the WWEClassics.com office have been rewatching old WCW shows as a profession for years and we’ve stumbled upon more than a few dopey moments we can’t believe we missed the first time around. Everyone remembers when David Arquette won the WCW Title, but what about the night Scott Steiner set attack dogs on Sting? Or that time Hulk Hogangot into an endlessly quotable confrontation with The Wall, who just happened to be standing on the top of a hotel a mile away from The Hulkster?

TNA star Stingwas recently interviewed by Brandon Baxter of Jonesboro, Arkansas’ 101.7 Kiss FM. Here are some highlights of what Sting said about:
Why He Has Stayed With TNA: “It’s the same answer every time and that is the brand, just love the brand,” Sting said. “It reminded me of the old school WCW and actually launching Monday Nitro and becoming the talk of the town and then talk of the whole wide world, and I saw the same potential here with this group of guys and everyone behind the scenes as well.”
