Yes ladies and gentlemen, the WWE is preparing to release the upcoming DVD collection based on “The Man They Call STING” — no, not THAT guy, THIS guy. The new title is titled “The Best of Sting,” and it will be released on DVD and Blu-ray next month. As of latest word this is a WCW-heavy match compilation with more than 30 bouts featured on the DVD version alone! Those span Sting’s career from 1986 through to 2001. The Blu-ray edition packs in all of those too and a whopping 19 extras on top – a mix of promos, segments and matches.
“The Best of Sting” will be released in the US on September 23rd, the UK & European territories on September 29th, and in Australia on October 1st. According to the back of the DVD, the official synopsis and selected content.
The Sting DVD chronicles his entire career from his Mid-South days as part of the Blade-Runners (with Ultimate Warrior) through his last WCW match vs. Ric Flair on the very last episode of WCW Monday Nitro (3/26/01).
The video features more than two dozen matches in total, many never before released on DVD. This includes a combination of well-known memorable matches, as well as some fairly obscure matches including encounters with Vader, Cactus Jack, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair. In addition, packages throughout the title will help tell the story of Sting’s career evolution.
Oh, and don’t forget that Sting’s appearing in the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game this fall (old-school, multi-colored Sting AND “The Crow” Sting) as a playable character. Here’s the trailer so you can get hyped! IT’S SHOWTIME!
