Work Of Wrestling host Tim Kail takes a detour into 1992 and 1993 to watch Sting vs Vader at The Great American Bash, Starrcade, and Superbrawl.

Topics include:

  • The origin of Tim's interest in WCW and Sting.
  • The negative affect WWE's documentaries of WCW have had on shaping Tim's perspective on the company.
  • The defining characteristics of "Surfer" Sting, as Tim sees them.
  • How refreshing it is to see a character's creative equity maintained even in defeat.
  • How the character's naiveté is balanced by his toughness and intelligence.
  • The effective combination of Jim Ross and Jesse Ventura on commentary.
  • Why this version of Sting resonates with Tim and activates his imagination.

And more!
