Sting had a long history in the squared circle, and he knows there are unwritten rules backstage. Years ago, the Stinger wrestled in WCW against Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. Fans were particularly thrilled by Sting in that match because he used his Scorpion Deathlock finisher on two of his opponents, propelling him to stardom. His actions after that match, however, appeared to have irritated Flair.

In a recent episode of the To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair expressed his displeasure at Sting’s failure to thank him and Arn Anderson for putting him over. Ric Flair stated that he doesn’t care if this offends Sting because he is Ric’s good friend and knows it.

This might offend Sting and I don’t care if it does or not, because he’s my good friend and he knows it too. When we shot the angle with Brian Pillman and me, Arn and Sting in detroit, it was the hottest thing on the show. The next day we went to Jacksonville, I put Sting over, I ran down, he double scorpioned both of us, He walked back in the locker room in Jacksonville, Florida and said ‘Sting is back,’ never said thank you to me or Arn.

Sting is currently mentoring Darby Allin in AEW. Their last match together was at Full Gear this year. There they defeated Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in a tag team no-disqualification match.


It’s unclear whether Sting will respond to these comments in the coming weeks. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
