Unknown Episode Unknown Episode:

Sting: [after he allegedly attacked Lex Luger] I want a chance to explain something that happened last Monday night at Nitro. Last Monday night, I was on an airplane flying from L.A. to Atlanta. When I got to Atlanta, I tuned in the TV to Nitro. And I thought I was watching a rerun. It was a very convincing film. Often imitated, but never duplicated, though, and what else did I see? I saw people, I saw wrestlers, I saw commentators, and I saw best friends doubt the Stinger. That's right, doubted the Stinger. So, I heard Lex Luger say "I know where he lives, I know where he works out, I'm gonna go get him!" So I said to myself "I'll just go into seclusion. I'll wait and see what happens on Saturday night." And I tuned in Saturday night and what'd I see? I saw more of the same. More doubt. Which brings me to Fall Brawl. I knew I had to get to Fall Brawl to get face to face with the Total Package, to let him know that it wasn't me. And what I got out of that was "No, Sting. I don't believe you, Sting." Well all I gotta say is I have been mediator, I have been babysitter. For Lex Luger, I have given him the benefit of the doubt about a thousand times in the last twelve months. Yeah. And I carry the WCW banner, and I have given my blood, my sweat, and my tears for WCW. So for all of those fans out there and all those wrestlers and people that never doubted the Stinger, I'll stand by you if you stand by me. But... but for all the people, all of the commentators, all of the wrestlers and all of the best friends who did doubt me, you can stick it. From now on, I consider myself a free agent. But that doesn't mean that you won't see the Stinger from time to time. I'm gonna pop in when you least expect it.
