WWE Hall of Famer Sting recently appeared on the Apter Chat podcast to discuss a number of topics, including where he got the idea of the Scorpion Deathlock finisher from, a move he used throughout his storied career.

Sting revealed that he the inspiration from wrestler Riki Choshu at a Japanese show.

“I was fortunate enough in those early days, while I was still with Bill Watts, (Giant) Baba from Japan wanted me to come do a show. Bill sent me to Japan and there was a wrestler named Riki Choshu. He used that hold and I went ‘oh, I like that’ and so then the scorpion kinda popped in all at the same time and attempting to brand myself” Sting said.

Sting also talked about the demise of WCW, which was eventually bought out by WWE.

“It was shocking, it was surreal, it was emotional because it was a lot of years of a lot of sacrifice” Sting explained. “Fighting tooth and nail to not be the second class wrestling organization, but to finally evolve into the number one wrestling organization in the world.

“To be that first class wrestling organization, a global machine, and to just watch it slip through your fingers and be gone and totally out of your control. I always said it was like the enemy coming into your camp and having their way.”

Jeff Jarrett Talks WWE Reviving WCW

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett is one of a number of superstars that were main talents for both WWE and WCW during the Monday Night Wars, and as a promoter himself, Jarrett understands the business side of the professional wrestling industry.

The WCW brand has a ton of history, but since Vince McMahon acquired the company in 2001, it has been dormant, existing only on the WWE Network.

With so many brands evolving under the WWE umbrella, including NXT, Jarrett shared his thoughts on a potential WCW revival.

“I don’t believe so,” Jarrett said, according to WWE. “I think you’ll see bits and pieces of what [we saw]. I think that the War Games, the things that, you know, Starrcade last year, but I think they’ll take bits and pieces of that nostalgia and monetize it. But as an overall brand, I think NXT speaks for itself how a smashing success that is that if they’re going to invest in a new brand, it’s gonna be new. And that makes a lot of sense.”

Jarrett, 51, also discussed an in-ring return.

“The beginning of this year, the very end of last year, I sort of recommitted myself from a bunch of different points of view, but physically, I’m in as good of physical shape that I’ve been in seven, eight, 10 years.”
