Sting's WWE adventure did not produce the desired effects. The six-time WCW World Heavyweight Championship debuted in Stamford's federation at the 2014 Survivor Series, interfering in the match between Team Authority and Team Cena and helping the latter to win.
In doing so, he secured a chance to take on Triple H at WrestleMania 31. Many fans were convinced that the former WCW star would defeat The Game in the biggest event on the WWE calendar. However, Hunter surprisingly beat his opponent, enshrining one of the most controversial achievements in the history of the 'Showcase of the Immortals'
As if that weren't enough, Sting suffered a serious neck injury during the match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions. In a recent Sportskeeda interview, Road Dogg revealed the main reason Sting's stint in WWE was a fiasco.
Road Dogg opens up on Sting
“The Sting we're admiring now in All Elite Wrestling is very different from the one Triple H faced at WrestleMania 31 and then got injured against Seth Rollins” - Road Dogg analyzed.
“He's having a kind of second youth and he's doing things he never did before. If he had been in the same condition he is in now, he probably would have achieved more in WWE” - he added. Road Dogg also spoke about Jeff Hardy, who was arrested on June 13 in Florida for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The 'Charismatic Enigma' was suspended without pay by All Elite Wrestling. “You have to believe in second chances. The United States was built on second chances, as was the wrestling business. Jeff Hardy deserves one. Jeff has a troubled history behind him and it's time to stop.
He must do everything possible to defeat his he demons”. We could not miss a thank you to Triple H: “He has been taking care of me since the first day I arrived in WWE. The Game will always have a special place in my heart”.
Lex Luger was with WWE but decided to jump ship when Bischoff offered him a WCW contract. His move surprised a lot of people as he was touted as the next Hulk Hogan in WWE. He debuted on the first episode of WCW Monday Nitro, and the shocking moment generated a lot of buzz in the wrestling world.
''Think about this, here’s a guy who left the company and nobody really liked him except for Sting and maybe the Steiner Brothers – he just wasn’t a well-loved guy, nobody shed a tear when Lex Luger left, especially people outside of the locker room,'' said Eric Bischoff.
