As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Sting attended the Wales Comic Con in Wrexham last weekend and took part in a Q&A session. Here are the final set of highlights from the session from @paperchampions :
When you first got into the business who were the guys you idolized?
“When I first got into the business I knew nothing about pro wrestling. By the time I got it, I looked at guys like Randy Savage. I likes the way that he was so over the top. The gestures, the voice, the colors, the glasses, the jackets. He was so bizarre and I was drawn to that.”
What piece of advice would you give to someone just starting out in the wrestling industry?
“Be slow to speak and fast to hear. Keep your mouth shut, just listen and learn.”
What is your favorite match that you were not involved with?
“Just about any match Shawn Michaels has had has been incredible. Shawn could have a match with a broomstick and it would still be entertaining.”
Who would be on your Mt Rushmore of professional wrestling?
“Andre the Giant, gotta have him there. Hulk Hogan, for sure. The Rock and [Ric] Flair.”
What is next for The Stinger?
“I’m trying to get back into real estate. Back in the day I made real good money from it and my wife and I are getting back into that.”
