Producer Reveals Why Ric Flair & Sting Are Not In “Who Killed WCW?” Documentary

Sting Ric Flair AEW

In the documentary covering the death of WCW, Ric Flair &Sting aren’t featured at all and a producer has addressed why that is.

A new documentary has been airing on Vice TV this month. It’s a four-part series called “Who Killed WCW?” and it’s a documentary that was produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions team.

Some of the notable names featured in interviews in the documentary include key WCW people like Eric Bischoff, Kevin Nash, Vince Russo, multiple Turner executives familiar with the story of WCW, Bret Hart, Bill Goldberg, Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T and even The Rock himself, who has a different perspective as a WWE guy.

When Ric Flair found out about the documentary, he went on social media to complain about how he wasn’t a part of it. Flair called it the “usual bulls**t” while calling himself the greatest WCW wrestler, which is a point that many people would agree with.

The first three of four episodes have aired in the “Who Killed WCW?” documentary and we finally know why legends like Ric Flair, Sting and Hulk Hogan weren’t a part of it.

Evan Husney, who is a Creator and Producer on the Who Killed WCW? documentary, said on Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast that it was a budget issue when it comes to Flair while others like Sting simply didn’t respond.

“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.

“(Hulk) 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.”

“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.”

Sting retired from pro wrestling at AEW Revolution back in March. AEW signed Ric Flair to a deal several months before that, but Flair hasn’t been on television since Sting retired over three months ago.
