The following press release was issued to us:
NSIDE THE ROPES & SQUAREDCIRCLE.COM PRESENT… Inside The Ropes LIVE! with STING
Pro Wrestling Icon’s First ever UK Q&A tour
In a career spanning 30 years, Steve Borden, the man best known to his millions of fans worldwide as Sting, became a pivotal part of WCW during the late 1980’s before reinvigorating his character during wrestling’s boom period of the mid-90s as the ‘crow’Sting persona that helped make the Monday Night Wars so exciting. He connected to generations of wrestling fans like few could with his exciting style and captivating character. Now, for the first time in his career, he is coming to the UK to travel through the country telling stories and answering your questions.
The Franchise of WCW was hugely successful in the UK when he would tour here as part of one of the world’s largest pro wrestling companies and later when he would return and headline shows with TNA. In the US, he became a pop culture icon as he fronted a national commercial for Sprite and even had his own credit card during the late 1990’s.
This will be the first and probably only time that fans will be able to get their photo taken with him in his iconic black and white FACEPAINT. Sting wants to give his UK fans the full experience so they can get a picture with The Icon looking like he’s on his way to the ring to do battle with villains like the nWo.
Earlier this year, Sting was one of the headline acts of WrestleMania in front of over 70,000 fans in San Jose, CA. Just 6 months after his epic bout with Triple H, he’ll be answering questions, telling stories and breaking his silence on what led to him finally signing and stepping into a WWE ring.
