Sting Talks Near Fatal Accident Being Lowered From Ceiling During WCW Days


WWE Hall Of Famer Sting recently appeared on 99.7 CYK radio to promote an independent wrestling show. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On a near-miss while being lowered from the ceiling during his WCW days: "If people knew what was going on up there. On a handful of occasions, oh my gosh. I mean, put it this way: I was close to having a fatal accident one night. Chicago, at the UIC Pavilion. That was, wow; I'm sweating right now telling you the story, and you know, coming out of the helicopter, and you got a Vietnam vet who's the pilot, who says, 'Sting, [if] by some chance your rope or your cord gets caught up in my blades, I'm gonna have to cut you loose.' And I kinda chuckle a little bit, and he's looking at me with these cold eyes, I'm like, okay, you're not joking, are you?"

On there only being one match that he would consider returning for: "I would only consider against one opponent, and that would be [Undertaker], and that's it. Anyone else, at this point, why? But, I have always loved the idea of the Sting-Taker thing. So many ideas in my head, you know, how to make it just a night that people would never forget."
