Has Sting Upgraded his Legacy with TNA?
Has Sting Upgraded his Legacy with TNA? Or do you give his legacy the same rating you would've gave it in 01.
He was very successful in WCW, but he didn't have as many notable runs with the strap as some may think. He only dominated the NWA/WCW strap in a couple of runs and then he had a few small runs with it. His best days there were in the late 80s and early 90s. After that he wasn't that big of a deal outside of 96/97 when managed be a major superstar without even wrestling or even talking, which was phenomenal. But I think the 2 big runs with the strap that he's gotten in TNA so far has raised his legacy and made up for some of the filler time or underachieving that ocured during the second half of his wcw career. I also think his role as insane sting has added another noteworthy phase to his career.
So yea, I think his work in TNA has given his career a notable upgrade and when I look at ALL the legends of wrestling dating back to 50s, I can finally say that Sting is top 20 all time with a serious face and it's really bcuz of burn he's been gettin in TNA. Had he gone to WWE, I don't think he would've gotten anywhere this type of burn.
Do y'all feel the same or do y'all take TNA with a grain of salt?
