On WCW: The Legacy Series, mizfan and mystic have argued that Sting's first world title reign began to suffer seconds after he won the belt from Flair. Sting walked up the ramp and praised Ric Flair (the heel who had tried to end his career). When the fans protested, he rebuked them.
From there, Ole Anderson (who had the book), began an angle between Sting and the Black Scorpion (a masked man who did low-budget magic tricks and kidnapped fans).
Did Sting's first title reign ever have a chance?
What we do know is that by Starrcade '90, the handwriting was on the wall. Reports are Sting knew the belt was going to be taken from him, but he requested that he at least defeat the Black Scorpion first.
It's Starrcade '90.
It's the end of black magic. Not just the Black Scorpion's, but it's the end of Ole Anderson's death grip on WCW.
WCW was the genesis of fandom for millions of pro wrestling enthusiasts over the course of a tumultuous 12 and half year run. From Starrcade of 1988 all the way to Greed of 2001, the company's fortunes, their glories and missteps, can be traced though their larger than life PPV events.
Shane, (@OneManHypeBand), formerly of LOP Radio's Impact the Revolution, returns to the LOPR airwaves to present this special series looking back upon the legacy of one of the most important entities in the history of pro wrestling. What was good, what was bad, most important why it meant so much to him as a developing fan and why it should mean so much to you now, as a fan far removed from the company's glory days.
WCW: The Legacy Series is more than a review or recap show. Far more. It's the story of a legacy. It's the story of modern mythological beings, still close enough to reach out and touch. Join us for the journey.
