Evan Husney On Why Sting, Ric Flair And Hulk Hogan Weren’t Interviewed For “Who Killed WCW?”

Dark Side of the Ring creator and Who Killed WCW? docuseries producer Evan Husney recently appeared on an episode of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he discussed a number of topics including the production reaching out to “The Icon” Sting and never hearing back.

Husney said, “Sting, unfortunately, I didn’t hear back from. When we visited [Jericho] at AEW, that was my mission. I don’t think he likes being on camera in these types of interviews. That’s my gut read. I don’t know if that’s true or not. Unfortunately, didn’t hear back from Sting. He would have been amazing.”

On Hulk Hogan opting not to participate:

“Hogan would have been amazing. Obviously, he feels like a big absence as well. There were days when I woke up and I felt like we had him and he was going to do it, but ultimately he decided not to.”

On why they didn’t reach out to Ric Flair:

“Ric Flair, it was tough, because when you think of WCW, Ric Flair is WCW. For us, it was mapping out the money that we had, wink wink, and when we did our research in terms of guys booked and going into it, Ric wasn’t necessarily a name that had a part of the end days of WCW. He was there, but in trying to maximize the number of people we wanted in the show and people to speak directly about a piece, a part, or some blame…I don’t think of Ric as being synonymous with the death of WCW.”
