In the newest episode of “Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia”, Lilian sits down with WWE Hall of Famer, Sting! Sting takes us back to the beginning; growing up in Southern California after moving from Nebraska, and how he handled living in a dysfunctional family. He talks about his love of basketball yet why he wasn’t able to make that a career and how he felt he was going nowhere in his life. You won’t believe how he met Hulk Hogan for the first time, and what 80’s cult classic movie he auditioned for...and almost got! Plus, his reasons for not going to the WWE during the Monday Night Wars, and how he was within minutes of giving up on pro wrestling but the conversation he had that made him not quit. He further talks about how even with fame & fortune he was in the darkest place of his life, and how his dealings with drugs, alcohol and adultery almost brought him to a nervous breakdown. Then something happened in August of 1998 that changed his entire life forever. In this compelling interview Sting also let’s us know if he is really retired from pro wrestling or if he has one more match in him to go against The Undertaker. Find out all that and more in this exclusive episode. It’s about to get real, raw, and inspiring, with “The Icon,” Sting!
Confessing his infidelity to his wife and finding God in the process:
“I confessed everything to my ex-wife. I was honest and truthful. It was horrendous, it was one of the worst moments of my life watching her life blood just come out of her almost, it was just horrendous. God at that point, I said, “Okay, I have given God lip service,” I literally said this prayer, “I’ve given you lip service, oh Lord.” And I had, nothing was real to me. It was like, wave your magic wand and fix everything. He doesn’t care about working with people like that, not from the outside in, but from the inside out. First he wanted my heart, and he never had my heart because it was only lip service until finally August of 1998 when I realized there’s no amount of money, no amount of power, no drug, no woman, no man, no doctor, nothing, nothing is going to fix this horrendous deep dark despair and I have messed lives up everywhere and I cannot fix this on my own. I need some supernatural and I said, “God, I surrender my life to you. Jesus Christ come and live inside my heart.” So that’s what happened to me in August of 1998 when I was at the very peak of my career. Muscle relaxers, pain relievers, alcohol, women, a lifestyle, even language that comes out of my mouth, everything changed radically overnight, and I was watching friends die from this kind of lifestyle over the years.”
