The Icon: Looking Back On The Career of Sting

18 March 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kieran Fisher looks back on the career of Sting following his retirement from in-ring competition…

After an illustrious 30-year career, Sting is expected to retire from professional wrestling, following an injury picked up against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions last year.  The Icon’s decision to call it quits comes as no surprise, but it is upsetting for fans who were hoping to see him don the face paint and brandish the bat one last time to end his short-lived WWE career on a high with a victorious Wrestlemania moment.  That being said, The Stinger’s impact on the business has been monumental; as one of the biggest stars the industry ever produced, he’ll go down in history as one of the immortals, placed in the upper echelons of wrestling’s most revered legends.  However, despite his status in the business, his career was one beleaguered with more mishandling than triumph. »
