The Top Ten Sting Matches


Recommended Posts

В нашата тема "петте мача" интереса към Стинг бе почти нулев -дано сега покрай спечелването на титлата да стане дискусия.Аз бих включил още мачове с Вейдър,както и много забавния като замисъл мач с Вампиро дето загубилия го бутаха във факла-класическа вражда-учител-ученик

.The Man they call Sting has been one of the most popular and influential wrestlers of the last few decades. His charismatic personality along with his in-ring skill has endured him in the heart and minds of many wrestling fans. One of the more unique things about the Stinger is that he is probably the only main event player from WCW that never jumped to the 'E. Sting is still making huge waves in the present day as the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion which is fitting given that he was one of the last few breakout stars that the NWA produced. Here's a quick look at some of Sting's greatest matches.

10) Sting vs. Lord Steven Regal (Great American Bash '96)

Sting was one half of the Tag Team Champions at this point and had a

little bit of a beef with the man we now know as William Regal. These two men went out and put on a hell of a technical display with Regal stiffing the hell out of the Stinger. The match ended once Sting locked on the Scorpion Deathlock and this was pretty much one of Sting's last truly great matches.

9) Sting vs. Ric Flair (Clash Of Champions 27)

This was a title Unification match as there was seemingly some controversy over who the "real" World Champion was(even though Flair clearly had the only meaningful title). Sherri Martel also showed up during the match and the big question during the match is who was she going to side with. She showed up with Sting paint on so that should have made it obvious that she was going to side with Flair. Anyhows, this was a fantastic match that had some great heat on Flair. The match ended after Sting accidentally knocked out Sherri which allowed Ric to roll him up(using the tights of course) to pick up the W. Anytime these two stepped in the ring together, it was bound to produce something memorable.

8) Sting vs. Ric Flair (WCW Nitro, 3/26/01)

What else could have been more fitting to close out the doors of WCW than to have the two most popular men in the company's history square off in one last epic battle? Although both men had their better years behind them by this point, they were still able to put on an entertaining match culminating in Sting locking in the Scorpion Deathlock and forcing Flair to tap. Seeing the two men embrace in the middle of the ring after the last match on the last show ever on WCW was absolutely perfect and a great way to remember WCW by.

7) Sting vs. The Great Muta (Great American Bash '89)

The Great American Bash '89 is heralded by many to be the best pay-per-view ever and this match is one of the reasons so many people remember this event so fondly. This was a match over the World TV Title and it was a classic matchup of speed(Sting) vs. high impact(Muta). This match was non-stop action from bell to bell and the crowd was very into it as both men were incredibly over. Sting won after countering Muta with a backdrop suplex and this match was a testimony to just how over Sting was in his glory years.

6) Sting vs. Cactus Jack (Beach Blast '92)

This was a falls count anywhere non-title match(Why they made it non-title when Cactus didn't win anyway is beyond me) that pitted the dangerous Cactus Jack against the World Champion Sting. This match was insanely fast paced with both men taking some very vicious bumps. Sting won the match after delivering a flying clothesline to Cactus from the top rope onto the ramp. Mick Foley often refers to this match as his favorite pre-WWE match and considering some of the crazy shit he did in ECW as well as Japan, that's saying a lot.

5) Sting & Lex Luger vs. The Steiners (Superbrawl '91)

This match was over the WCW tag titles that were held by The Steiners and this is one of the most action packed matches you'll ever see. I know that you may doubt that seeing that Luger was involved in this match as well, but he held his own. These two teams busted their ass and provided a very entertaining match that saw a bunch of innovative moves and near falls. The ending came when Sting saved Luger from a chain shot and ate the pin as a result. A great, fun tag team match.

4) Wargames (Wrestlewar '91)

This match pitted the newly formed Four Horsemen of Ric Flair, Sid Vicious, Larry Zybszko, and Barry Windham against Sting, Brian Pillman and The Steiners. These two teams absolutely hated each other and that was evident throughout this match as the blood flowed and the brutality was at an all time high. The ending saw Sid damn near cripple Brian Pillman with a powerbomb that dropped him right on the neck. This match was just a showcase of how insanely over both Sting and Ric Flair were that they could elevate other talent and put on a great showcase match like this one.

3) Sting vs. Vader (Superbrawl III)

This was a non-title strap match between the two fierce rivals and many consider this match to be the greatest strap match ever. This was years ahead of its time in terms of brutality and Vader's relentless assault on Sting left the crowd stunned. Sting was able to make a comeback, but Vader's overwhelming power was too much as he proceeded to drag Sting to all four corners in order to win the match. Absolutely brutal, great stuff that is definitely worthwhile to seek out.

2) Wargames (Wrestlewar '92)

This Wargames match pitted Steve Austin, Rick Rude, Larry Zybszko, Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton against Sting, Barry Windham, Ricky Steamboat, Nikita Voloff, and Dustin Rhodes. This is considered by many to be the greatest WarGames match ever and it's hard to disagree with that statement. This match was the culmination of the Dangerous Alliance angle, which if you think about it was very similar to the nWo storyline except that it didn't go on forever. Sting's team represented WCW who were trying to rid WCW of the Dangerous Alliance for good. This match was insanely bloody with particularly Austin and Rhodes bleeding all over the place. The ending saw Sting lock in an armbar to Eaton, who had already severly hurt his arm in the match, for the submission. This was an absolutely fantastic, classic, can't miss match.

1) Sting vs. Ric Flair (Clash Of Champions I)

This was the match that made Sting's career. Sting was an up-and-comer at this point, but after this match he became the biggest face in WCW(well NWA at the time). This was for Flair's NWA title and there was a 45-minute time limit. Sting took it to Flair in this match and had the champ on the ropes at numerous times. With 30 seconds left before the time limit, Sting was able to lock in the Deathlock, but Flair held on until the time expired. The match was declared a draw(which incidentally was funny since before the match it was declared that there MUST BE A WINNER) and a star was born in Sting. He would go on to achieve great success in WCW, but this is the one match that turned him into the face of WCW for over a decade.
