Eric Bischoff Named General Manager of RAW by Vince McMahon - WWE RAW [July 15th, 2002]
The story about how this unlikely event unfolded that night and how it was kept secret from everyone, taken from Eric Bischoff’s 2006 book, Controversy Creates Cash:
"About seven o’clock, a stretch limo arrived at my hotel to take me to the arena. We stayed out in the parking lot, outside the arena area, until nine. Then the limo pulled inside the arena. I remained inside so no one could see me. I was smiling so hard my face hurt. I knew it was going to be big. I knew I was going to get a huge reaction from the crowd. I was excited to get out in that ring again and let it rip, just hear that audience react.
Not only did Sting show up at the San Diego Comic Con, he did a couple of on-camera interviews with various outlets. There’s nothing in this clip that’s mindblowingly newsworthy, but you get to see The Man Called Sting in full makeup discussing the WWE… which is still pretty awesome to see.
