Complete Match Listing For Sting – The Ultimate Collection DVD

If you caught Monday Night Raw the week of July 14th you may have seen the promo for the upcoming release of WWE 2K15 – you know, the one with Daniel Bryan on the cover. But the promo wasn’t for the leader of the YES! movement. The promo was for a wrestler who would be a pre-order bonus. Of course, I’m talking about “The Man Called Sting.”

While video game junkies will have to wait until October 28th to play as Sting in WWE 2K15, World Wrestling Entertainment will release a special retrospective DVD set sometime in September titled Sting: The Ultimate Collection.

Similar to collections for The Ultimate Warrior and Goldberg, it will be a three-disc set alternating between short packages and matches. There’s yet to be confirmation if Steve Borden (aka Sting) will be involved with the interview packages.

Instant Thoughts: My personal history of WCW programming in the late ’80s and early ’90s is limited, so I’m happy with this set including a number of matches Sting had on broadcasts like WCW Power Hour, Main Event, and WCW Saturday Night. The repeats of his match against Ric Flair at 1990’s The Great American Bash and against Hogan at 1997’s Starrcade don’t both me much, since they are signature bouts in his career. What is disappointing is the omission of his matches against Lex Luger and Vader at SuperBrawl II and SuperBrawl III, respectively. This is due in part because of Jesse Ventura on commentary. (To get around playing royalties due to a lawsuit Ventura won against WWE, the company just removes his audio entirely. So if you watched the Wargames match from Wrestle War ’92 and found it odd that you only hear Tony Schiavone on microphone, this is why.)

Nevertheless, this looks like a solid set with a lot of matches early in Sting’s career I’ve never seen, plus several more in the dark days of WCW that I missed.
