Overview

“UnconVINCEd: The Unauthorized Story of Why Sting Still Won’t Work for Vince McMahon and the WWE” is a compelling, first of its kind, and completely unauthorized inside look at why one of wrestling's biggest stars - Steve Borden (Sting) - still refuses to work for WWE and Vince McMahon.

International bestselling author Michael Essany probes Borden's storied career, his deep Christian faith, battles with drug and alcohol abuse, his refusal to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and the lingering prospect of Sting headlining one WrestleMania before his looming retirement.

This is the true story of professional wrestling's greatest mystery.

EXCERPT FROM PART 2:

The most widely known fact about Sting is also the source of his greatest mystery.

Steve Borden, the man behind the iconic professional wrestling character Sting, is a born again Christian.

And unlike some in the wrestling business, whose professed new relationship with God may ostensibly be only for show, Borden's faith is legitimate. And the unquestionably decent, moral, and non-controversial life he's led speaks volumes about the sincerity of his Christian faith and the reason why almost every current or former colleague praises the kind soul Borden is known to possess.

But from this known fact emanates the fiction that still lingers about the legendary sports entertainer. Despite the rumors and hearsay, Borden's Christian faith is not what keeps him from working in the WWE.

    Wow, a very good read! It's very short but very insightful especially with certain events that building up to somebody coming to Wrestlemania 27 but never happened. Very good behind the scenes about Sting, Vince, and Undertaker. It's a very very short read but I'd highly recommended this if you are a hardcore pro wrestling fan.
