Re: The Official Sting Appreciation Thread

A true legend and one of my all time favorites.



J.R:"Everybody claims to be an icon and claims to be something special,and maybe they were in their day
None will Ever surpass the Undertaker in my view"
Kurt Angle:"He is our leader, and I consider Undertaker the best ever"
Shawn Michaels:"Wrestling against Undertaker was the best professional experience of my life."
Triple H:"He is The Greatest Legend in the history of this business"
Michael Cole:"The biggest Smackdown and WWE superstar of all time,the legendary Undertaker".
Mark Henry:"it's hard not to put The Undertaker in the same breath as Hogan and Rock because not only has he served more years as them, but collectively, I'm sure he's sold out and made more money than all of them."

Video I put together a few months back of some of Sting's best in-ring work. I was always a huge Sting fan, one of my all-time favorites for sure.

I always liked the guy. He was one wrestler I don't see how anyone could dislike. Would have been interesting to see how he would have done in the WWE.

Re: The Official Sting Appreciation Thread

Not really. So many of those matches are really short and used just to advance the nWo storyline at the time. Some TV matches to check out from Crow Sting in the late 90s are

Sting vs.

DDP - Nitro 03/23/1998
Goldberg - Nitro 09/14/1998
Ric Flair - Nitro 04/12/1999
DDP - Nitro 04/26/1999
Chris Benoit - Nitro 09/20/1999

Thanks mate, I got a Nitro set I havnt got around to watching yet that include those matches, the one from '99 with DDP is a classic though imo.

What is everyone's favorite Sting matches? I still love the COTC match vs Flair.

Re: The Official Sting Appreciation Thread

I thought I'd ask this here instead of making another thread.

Was there a legit reason behind Sting not wrestling between late 96 and Starcade 97? Was he hurt?
