Former Wrestling Promoter On Sting Having No Interest In Wrestling When He Discovered Him

During his appearance on WINCLY, Rick Bassman, the former wrestling promoter who discovered Sting, spoke on Sting not having any interest in professional wrestling when they first met. Here’s what he had to say:

Steve Borden [Sting] was a replacement for the All-American guy and Jim Hellwig [Warrior] was a replacement for the American Indian.

He’s a really nice guy and we were probably on the phone for an hour-and-a-half today. We reconnected recently and have been talking about a bunch of different things. He’s a good dude and is mellow. We met because he was the day manager at the gym in California where my wrestling group was working out.

I asked him [to be in the group] and he had zero interest in pro wrestling, none whatsoever. I worked on him for months before he said he’ll give it a try and the rest is history. But he’s always been a good dude.
