Championship Return

Dec. 28, 1997

For more than a year, Sting plays mind games with The nWo, sending a message to the faction’s leader, Hollywood Hogan. At Starrcade 1997, The Stinger faces Hogan for the WCW Title in his first match in more than a year. The nWo-affiliated official makes a controversial three-count in Hogan’s favor, but Bret Hart restarts the match and serves as the special referee. Sting manages to lock Hogan in the Scorpion Deathlock to win the WCW Title.
