20 ridiculous WCW moments you may have missed

#20 Sting goes to the dogs

Sports-entertainment is a rough and tumble industry. You could say it’s a dog-eat-dog world. On one occasion in WCW, though, it was dog-eat-wrestler.

Sting took on Rick Steiner at The Great American Bash 1999 in a hard-hitting brawl. The action quickly spilled out of the ring, which is where things took a turn for the groan-worthy. Steiner led The Stinger backstage, where Tank Abbott was waiting to attack. Once the mixed martial artist was done with him, Sting stumbled into Scott Steiner’s path. Big Poppa Pump then signaled for something.

Two vicious Dobermans rushed toward the face-painted warrior, for what was supposed to look like a brutal attack. Instead, one bit into a rag, which was suddenly wrapped around Sting’s hand, while the other gently latched onto a pad sticking out of Sting’s boot. Thankfully, the debacle ended before we got to see how tame Big Poppa Pump’s Rottweiler was.
