The Sting Fan Club 

 Lets face the facts.

 Things were getting really, really slow with WCW in the early-nineties. These guys were now starting to wrestle in Winston Salem and the shows were in the annex building. That place only held about two thousand fans and there were a lot of empty seats if you get my drift. Leaving Greensboro was a good money saving move but this place was wrestling hell for the wrestlers and the fans. Well, not all the fans. I began to like this sinkhole. With my loud mouth and the Front Row raising hell, we really did make the best of it.

 But a strange thing began to happen. We began to like Sting. I know, I know, that is totally against the grain for the Front Row but the guy began to earn our respect. After his feud with Big Van Vader and the ass kicking he took losing the title, you had to give the guy a little credit. Was Sting the greatest wrestler of all time? No. But the guy did try when many mailed it in night after night.

  After the Night of the Squeegee, we decided to mess with Stink, err, I mean Sting and make a positive sign just for him.

 It was simple.

 It said," Sting Fan Club!" and when he saw it he totally lost it laughing.

 That is when I flipped the sign over and it said,

 "Really."

I really think it messed with him more than anything we could have done.

 This became a ritual at future wrestling shows and it always got over with Sting. Stupid signs for Sting were a constant and Sting would always pop big for them all. One was, "Nice Hair!" for a new dye job.

   But Mark Way thought up the best sign that really messed Sting up. Mark was my roommate and kind of liked wrestling. He would never admit it publicly, but he did watch every once and a while

 . We made the Sting Fan Club sign and he was going to wrestle Paul "Mister Wonderful" Orndorff that night. Orndorff had wrestled in the historic huge feud with Hulk Hogan and suffered nerve damage to his left arm. This feud was one of the largest moneymakers of all time so he could not take time off to heal and so one arm was noticeably smaller than the other.

  Well, out comes Sting and I hold up his sign. He started laughing and asked me to turn the sign around. On the flip side I lettered, "GO FOR THE LITTLE ARM!"

 Sting totally lost it laughing and so I did the smart thing and held up the sign for Orndorff. Orndorff just smirked and read the Sting Fan Club sign.

  Then I flipped it.

 And believe it or not he broke up too! He just started laughing and turned around and walked away. Sting gave me that look of you really did it this time. But that was expected right?
