Everyone remembers where they were last November when the "Icon", The Franchise of the WCW...... Sting finally showed up on a WWE PPV during the Main Event of Survivor Series. I remember that night because that is one of the few nights in a long time that my mouth was left a gape after a WWE PPV. The reason for that being I honestly never thought at this point that Sting would show up in the WWE, but I was proven wrong and am extremely happy about it. Now let us take a trip back to last November the night of Survivor Series aka the night that unthinkable happened, The Night Sting Finally Appeared on WWE Programming.
For those who may have missed it, Sting has finally debuted in the WWE. He showed up near the end of Survivor Series and dropped Triple H with the Scorpion Death Drop. Sting has always been the one man never to step foot in the WWE until now and almost 30 years after his debut in 1985 he is finally a part of the WWE. Below a look back at Sting's post WCW career:
From 1987-88 till 2001 Sting became and was thought of as the "Franchise of the WCW" and Sting was The Man who stood up and fought against the NWO for over a year. After WCW went under in 2001 Sting was one of if not the only WCW alumni never to appear for the WWE. It was almost like Sting walked away from the Wrestling business after WCW partly due to his hefty contract from Time Warner still having time on it. In late 2002 Sting was back in the ring for a short time working for the company WWA (World Wrestling All-Stars.) Sting would then sign a four appearance limit contract with NWA-TNA at some point in 2003, and he would debut at TNA's one year anniversary show teaming with Jeff Jarrett against Syxx-Pac and AJ Styles. Sting would disappear from TNA until around late 2005 when a video promoting his return was aired at the end of Turning Point on December 11th. Then from 2005-2014 Sting would be a major part of the TNA roster and would help TNA Wrestling reach new heights for the company.
Some of Sting's major achievements post WCW:
-First Inductee into the TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame
-First Person to win the NWA World Title prior to NWA-TNA inception and after it
-Oldest NWA World Champion in the TNA era
-Former NWA World Champion (Which was his first major title since 1999)
-Four Time TNA World Champion
-One Time TNA Tag Team Champion
-WWA World Champion
Now finally after almost 30 years in the wrestling industry and before tonight never stepping foot in a WWE ring; Sting has finally changed that is officially a member of the WWE. I for one couldn't be happier and for me it's only part of a dream come true and now the other part is left for hope. It's now Showtime, Folks!!!!!
Tune into RAW tomorrow night as you may not want to miss it!!!!!!
