Eric Bischoff, a former general manager of WWE RAW, recently made fun of a commercial that featured Sting, a legendary wrestler. During his tenure with WCW, The Icon rose to become one of the most well-known stars in the business. Beginning in 1987, he worked for World Championship Wrestling until the organization’s demise in 2001.
Then he began wrestling for TNA (now Impact). Additionally, in 2014, the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion made an appearance on WWE shows and competed in a prominent match against Triple H at WrestleMania 31. In 2016, he was admitted to the Hall of Fame. The venerable star is currently with AEW. Due to his widespread appeal, Sting has made numerous appearances in commercials over the course of his illustrious career.
One such advertisement was for the Sprite beverage. A young fan answers the door when Sting rings the doorbell of a home during the advertisement. After a fight between the fan and the icon, the former drags the latter across the house. A memory of the advertisement from a fan included praise for how “well done” it was. Eric Bischoff, however, expressed doubt about the advertisement’s message, implying that he probably didn’t like it. “Kind of odd though, isn’t it? What’s the message here, exactly?”

“Hey kids, drink Sprite or a man will knock on your door brandishing a baseball bat and ragdolling you,” Bischoff tweeted. Another fan wrote on Twitter that the advertisement was both satisfying and somewhat honest in that the child was beaten, which is what would have actually happened. In response, Bischoff made jokes about the child’s parents, who appeared to take pleasure in seeing their child be physically abused.
He seemed to imply that the advertisement wasn’t as truthful as the viewer believed. “The parents, too?” They loved seeing that snot-nosed kid get his a** handed to him “Bischoff tweeted. In AEW, Sting and Darby Allin are currently allies. The storied star has competed in a number of matches for the organisation, with his most recent match taking place at Full Gear on November 19, 2022.
