Various: Sting on Origin of Scorpion Deathlock, New WWE Trademarks, Indies

Sting Comments on the Origin of His Scorpion Deathlock Move

As noted before, Sting was the guest on a recent episode of The Apter Chat podcast and another topic discussed involved the origin of his famous Scorpion Deathlock move.

“I was fortunate enough in those early days, while I was still with Bill Watts, (Giant) Baba from Japan wanted me to come do a show. Bill sent me to Japan and there was a wrestler named Riki Choshu. He used that hold and I went ‘oh, I like that’ and so then the scorpion kinda popped in all at the same time and attempting to brand myself.”
