EXCERPT FROM PART 2:
The most widely known fact about Sting is also the source of his greatest mystery.
Steve Borden, the man behind the iconic professional wrestling character Sting, is a born again Christian.
And unlike some in the wrestling business, whose professed new relationship with God may ostensibly be only for show, Borden's faith is legitimate. And the unquestionably decent, moral, and non-controversial life he's led speaks volumes about the sincerity of his Christian faith and the reason why almost every current or former colleague praises the kind soul Borden is known to possess.
But from this known fact emanates the fiction that still lingers about the legendary sports entertainer. Despite the rumors and hearsay, Borden's Christian faith is not what keeps him from working in the WWE.
