Eric Bischoff Reveals Why He Thinks Sting Didn’t Go To WWE Immediately After WCW Closed Down

WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW President Eric Bischoff recently took to his 83 Weeks podcast, where he talked about a variety of topics such as how “The Icon” Sting didn’t really talk much about why he didn’t go to the WWE as soon as WCW closed down and that is because Sting was very guarded.

Eric Bischoff said:

“No. One of the things I really recall about him personally — and this was throughout my working relationship with Steve — Steve’s very guarded. I want to say he’s an introvert, but at least around the locker room, he was very guarded. Didn’t really talk about it that much, to be honest with you.”

Eric Bischoff also talked about how he thinks Sting didn’t go to the WWE immediately after WCW closed down because The Icon just couldn’t get himself to trust the process in WWE and he did not have a lot of confidence in how he would be used or utilized in WWE.

Eric Bischoff said:

“But I wasn’t surprised because — I don’t want to speak for him — but because Sting was so guarded, I don’t want to say he didn’t trust people, but I don’t think he had a lot of confidence in how he would be used or utilized in WWE. Look, he had a couple conversations over the years with WWE, but he never pulled the trigger. I think it was because he just couldn’t get himself to trust the process, I guess, in WWE. He just didn’t feel comfortable, so it didn’t surprise me.”
