NWO Sting On Having More Success With New Japan Than WCW, Being A Part Of NWO & More!

Former WCW star Jeff Farmer aka the NWO Sting was recently the guest on Interactive Wrestling Radio. Here are some highlights…

On being an integral part of NWO vs. WCW:

“You know, I agree with you. It was amazing to be a part of and coming out as Sting at Fall Brawl and everyone thinking it was Sting and the swerve, it was just a great time in wrestling to be a part of. he amount of attention, from the fans, that the nWo was able to generate; it was amazing! Credit to Hogan, Hall, Nash and Bischoff for the success of the group. It was really an amazing feat to see it make wrestling so popular.”

On NWO’s populatiry raising WCW’s profile which made it another viable option to those unhappy in WWE:

“You know, there was a war going on! It was a great time. It was almost like a race because you had the ratings war, the buys war. And, you know, it was a great time for the boys too because if you were unhappy, you had a little leverage to go to the other side, maybe? I think that was kind of lost after the sale of WCW, you know? You have McDonald’s and Burger King – you don’t want to have just one choice.”

On having more success with New Japan than with WCW:

“In WCW, there were a lot of little cliques and nepotism and you never really knew who was on whose side. In Japan, it was just straight-forward wrestling. I would get there, my name would be on the board, I thrived in that environment much more than in WCW. It wasn’t anybody’s fault. It was just that there was a lot of talent in WCW and everybody was fighting for TV time and we didn’t really have space for it all. It was just a different time.”

On being a part of the historic group:

“I just want to thank everyone who came out and see me or watched me. It was a lot of fun getting to perform in front of them and trick them and have them hate me or whatever that was [laughs]. It was an amazing thing to be even a small part of and congratulations to those guys going into the WWE Hall of Fame! It was something I was, again, just glad to be a part of!”
