When it comes to the WWE and talking about Legends within the organization, it’s obvious that Sting’s name will be near the top of the list. As one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, Sting has gone through many transitions since his debut in professional wrestling all the way back in 1987, when he first made his appearance within the WCW.

When he made his debut, Sting was a well-built wrestler who went into matches with a face full of bright face paint. Fast forward to the 1990s, when Sting took on a darker appearance, donning creepy black and white face paint and a black trench coat reminiscent of the movie The Crow, and came out to matches wielding a baseball bat.

In more recent years, Sting has stepped into the WWE arena to play a role as “The Vigilante,” someone that looks out for the good guy, fights back against wrongdoing, and butts heads with The Authority.

His changing looks aren’t the only thing that has kept Sting relevant for several decades. His abilities inside of the ring are truly unmatched. Here, we have 10 amazing statistics that show why Sting has been a fan-favorite in the wrestling ring for so many years.

If Sting’s list of championship wins seems impressive, that’s because it is. When compared to most wrestlers, Sting has had a longer and much more successful career in this industry. However, knowing that his list of championship wins led to a record that only he holds, it is even more impressive. Sting is the only wrestler within the professional wrestling industry that has held NWA, WCW, and TNA titles. It is because of accomplishments like these that Sting was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame back in 2012. As of September 2015, Sting has not yet been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and many speculate that it’s because he has not had a lengthy career with WWE. However, he has recently made multiple appearances in high-profile PPV matches, so it may only be a matter of time before he’s inducted into another HOF.
