Early-to-mid 1990s WCW music is a different breed. From Steinerized to Simply Ravishing, American Made to American Males (…American males). It’s certainly a unique flavour. Today we take a look at one of the more famous themes from this time – Man Called Sting. The song appears on the WCW Slam Jam 1 album released in 1992 and author credits […]
