For Bruce Prichard, Sting was looked at as Moby Dick.
Much has been made about Sting and his loyalty to WCW during the inter-promotional rivalry between WCW and WWE. Becoming the franchise for WCW, Sting would remain loyal to the company in good times and bad and throughout the entirety of his full-time career, staying would never join the WWE.
While answering fan questions on his podcast, Bruce Prichard, who was with the WWE throughout all of Sting’s run at the top of WCW, would label him as the one signing that could just never come to fruition.
“I don't know whether it was so much that he got away, [but] just didn't want to leave in that probably Sting is one,” said Bruce. “That was a big one that we just never got [him] when we wanted him and almost to the point where it became kind of a game and became, 'oh, okay, well, his deal's coming up at such and such a time and he can talk again. It's at least time to say hello.' So, you know, Sting is probably the big one that never got there. I would have to say just off the top of my head, Sting was that big one, he was the Moby Dick.”
Sting would eventually make it to WWE. He arrived on the scene at the Survivor Series in 2014 and would face Triple H at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 ultimately losing to “The Game.”
Fellow WCW legend Arn Anderson spoke very candidly about the presentation of Sting during that match. Read his full comments at this link.
