Sting's one stupid dude
By BRET "THE HIT MAN" HART -- For the Calgary Sun

  Last week, I was saying that I can't believe how stupid some people are.

 Like Sting. What was he thinking? I mean, c'mon! To challenge The Hitman and Hollywood Hogan for a 2-on-1? Especially after I beat him so bad the week before that he had to be stretchered out. That isn't guts, that's just plain stupid. That's what happens when you put your heart before your head. Don't mistake stupidity for bravery. In this case, it was neither. It was more like chicanery. I'm sure Sting wouldn't have issued the challenge unless the Wolfpac was ready to prowl. They ran like the dirty dogs they are.

 Warrior won't be a Jeopardy champion in this lifetime but at least he had the common sense to bail Sting out rather than bail out on him like he did when they were tag partners. How can Sting trust him after that?

 You know what got me? Warrior told Sting he'd stand beside him to fight the anti-heroes of our time. When did I become an anti-hero? What is it Albert Einstein said: "To punish me for my contempt of authority, God made me an authority myself."

 As much as the 1990s will be remembered as the age of the wrestling anti-hero, even more so it's the age of wrestling gangs. Just what we need, more letters to add to the alphabet soup: LWO -- Latino World Order. Arriba la rassa! Is Pepe a member or a mascot?

 Do you realize that OWN is NWO backwards? I don't know what that means and I'm not sure I want to know. Does anybody understand what this One Warrior Nation stuff is about? If it means Warrior won't mumble at his armpits and hear divine voices anymore, then I guess the OWN is a good thing.

 Besides, it gives him something nice to paint on his jacket, if you like that sort of thing. Warrior told Sting that a little dab of paint has taken them a long way. He's right. They don't even have to get masks for Halloween Havoc. That's if Sting even shows up!

 Was that tag match on Nitro Sting's way of getting out of facing The Hitman at Havoc? I've called JJ Dillon about it, but no one seems to know the answer.

 Halloween Havoc will be home to one of the biggest, long-awaited (81/2 years) rematches in wrestling history, Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. Warrior.

 I wasn't fooled for one second by Warrior's sudden renewed loyalty to Sting. I know he only wanted the tag match so he could try Hogan out before Havoc.

 Once in a while, I still get a fan letter about what happened in Montreal, telling me to get over it. I got over it a long time ago. Life is good in WCW. However, I still feel it's important that the real truth about what happened comes out so that the culprits never get over it. That'll all be taken care of with the release of the independently-produced documentary, Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows. For more information, call 800-900- 6952 or go to www.brethartvideo.com.

 The Calgary Hitmen always do the Hitmen name proud. They're the toughest, roughest, smartest and hardest team in the WHL. They embody the never-say-die, give-it-100% ideals of The Hitman so much that when The Hitman hits a rough spot, the Hitmen are my inspiration.

 Your father's days are lost to you

 This is your time here to do what you will do

 Would you teach your children to tell the truth

 Would you take the high road if you could choose

 Do you believe you're a victim of a great compromise

 Cause I believe you could change your mind and

 change our lives

 Your life is now

 In this undiscovered moment

 Lift your head up above the crowd

 We could shake this world

 If you would only show us how

 Your life is now.

 -- John Mellencamp
