Sting recently spoke with Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald regarding meeting Vince McMahon, facing Bray Wyatt and watching and paying attention to the WWE product.
Below are some highlights:
His dealings with WWE so far:
"It's very impressive. It's a class A operation. These are very professional people, from the office people to marketing to merchandising. I was up in the offices in Connecticut and saw the different departments. It's unbelievable. The whole roster, the talent and everybody there has been all top-notch."
Meeting Vince McMahon:
"It was very good. I've spoken to him many times over the years. I may a NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives) convention over the years in the early 1990's at one point. There was a recent time a few weeks ago we had met."
A possible match with Bray Wyatt, who caught Sting's eye:
"I'd love to see that. I'd love to see Bray Wyatt coming up the way he is because he has the one thing I do believe that is missing. It's the characters. Everybody is just so grey. Not everybody. I'm just saying wrestling in general in the last 10 years or so everybody got kind of grey. The personalities I grew up with like "Macho Man" Randy Savage was a reason I wanted to get into wrestling. Hulk Hogan and his personality, completely over-the-top. So I think this is really good. Wyatt is not completely over-the-top. Bray Wyatt has the ability to have a good mix of both. He has some realism along with his character."
Keeping up with WWE:
"I'm just now starting to watch and pay attention. I'm learning the roster as we speak because I'm a strange breed. You have 30 years, and I've never watched any wrestling really. I don't watch it. I never have. I never watched myself. So now I'm just learning it all. I'm using it for study."
