  1. “He does this and does that …

    He’s big a bull and quick as a cat ….

    It’s the MAN called Sting !!!!”

    LOL, haven’t heard that in a long time. Now it’s stuck in my head! LOL!!

    Hated that song, but loved to watch Sting. Very underrated as a performer. Made WCW tolerable to watch until 1999-2000, and I don’t think ANYONE could’ve made the last two years tolerable. Finally someone who deserves to be in a real hall of fame, not some performers that are going in because they were Vince’s buddies or creations.

    Watched his son play football here at Kilgore College a couple of years ago. Good young man. Saw Steve in the crowd a few times, but never went to say hello. Got the feeling he wanted to just be a dad and be left alone. First class individual, first class performer.
