when Mark sent it over i was a bit worried as usually when they go ahead with this type of encompassing pieces its usually full of ego building hoorah and some of the weaker matches from the wrestlers past but to be honest WWE: The Best of Sting is a great buy! the programme includes stories of Sting’s career from his body-building debut to his wrestling debut as one half of The Blade Runners, tagging with the one and only Ultimate Warrior. Even in his early WCW days to Crow-inspired, silent, baseball swinging, black and white face-painted, icon of wrestling.
There are many wrestling matches from throughout Sting’s career. a career that has run almost 30 years and six wrestling promotions through Hell and High water. This release includes well-known matches, as well as someoddly quite strange encounters against Big Van Vader, Hulk Hogan ,Ric Flair ,Cactus Jack, and so many well known grapplers. The biggest feud of course had to be the years against Ric Flair! Flair who has faced Sting on many occasions, from the early 80s to the last episode of WCW Monday Nitro.
Like a lot of WWE’s dvds i was hoping there would be more background stories on feuds or funny stories on the Road but mostly it was linked together with small promos by fans and friends from all over every where from WWE to TNA to WCW. not that its a bad show it just could of been more enhanced with interviews with the man and not just semi links.
there were a few early highlights for me including the NWA World Heavyweight Championship match; Sting Vs the Nature boy showing the high flying wheeling dealing Flair the type of skills that would make Sting stand out from his wrestling buddies throughout the years. there is another from American Bash 1990 which allthough years later still shows that both men can show the younger guys how it should be done! Other highlights include Sting vs. Stunning Steve Austin , A fantastic tag match with Sting & The Great Muta vs. The ever popular Steiner Brothers in Japan around early 90s. another match featuring Sting vs. Big Sexay Kevin Nash , and then a reunion of sorts as Sting joins The One Warrior Nation against Bret “The Hitman” Hart & Hollywood Hogan. This match isnt as great but the build up when i was younger was imense as it was the Blade runners reuniting! Some of the funniest things to happen on this set was the Robocop meets Sting piece. even as a kid i thought this would be epic but was more like watching an episode fo Neighbours with Robocops acting!
This could of been a better DVD if there was more Sting and a little less WWE if you know what i mean. i know they have only just signed him but people would of liked an interview now and not what seems to be a GREAT rush job. still id def give this DVD a 4 Star review
