I was planning on doing same kind of thread recently. It's a fucking shame this legend doesn't have a DVD yet. WWE has tons of footage from WCCW, NWA, WCW, WWF, ECW and probably more.
Also it sucks he isn't in the Hall of Fame yet. Must have something to do with the fact he double crossed Vince after the montreal screwjob and appeared on both RAW and Nitro and did that shoot promo over the screwjob.
One of the best heels of the early 90s. He had it all, looks, charisma, inring, promo skills. He was the complete package.
Sting ended his career in japan in 94, he was already a established main event heel and was 3 time WCW international champion. And in 99 he passed away, way too young.. It's said he was preparing to make an inring comeback in the WWE.
