    Solid WWE release

    This is another solid WWE release. It is a nice compilation of Sting's matches over his storied career from the surfer days to the "crow" days. WWE's approach to putting out compilations is solid in my opinion and one of the few non-redundant ways they can release content since the advent of the WWE network. My minor gripe and over-all holistic gripe concerning WWE's releases especially of older material is that I wish they would spend more time cleaning up the image. When you see the results large movie studios have had transferring older films like Jaws & Ghostbusters among others. It would be a wrestling fan's dream to see older content in true 1080P or 4K up-scaling. Overall, a solid release and I am happy to have it in my collection.

    Not really the "best" but a great set

    WWE overall did a great job with this set, not a ton of home video repeats but more rare and unreleased matches which is always great to see. There are no new interviews from sting as the interview narrating over some of the story segments is from an old WCW home video release. That was kind of a disappointment but you have to figure they will make a documentary type release on sting in the future that will include more of that. This certainly is not "the best" of sting as it contains many squash matches, but is a great collection of sting action to own!

    Lacks a narrative, no updated interviews w/Sting

    This is one of the WWE DVD's that fails to tell a story. Here's some stuff about Sting - now here's a match - here's a few more stories or interviews about Sting - here's another match. There's not a chronological flow to it, and to top it off, WWE didn't include any new or updated interviews with Sting. Perhaps they'll ask me for another $40 to buy a new Blu-Ray after he wrestles and retires at Mania... and I'll gladly pay it.

    If you have only seen Sting wrestling in the WWE, you don't know what you're missing. Sting was the franchise of the WCW. In the 80's and 90's when you had a choice in where to watch wrestling, WCW provided an excellent alternative to the sometimes struggling WWF. Sting was the driving force behind that company for nearly 15 years. Worth every penny to be able to re-live some of his greatest matches on nearly 9 hours of entertainment.

    Good information, great insight into Sting's great History in Wrestling, but I HATE when they cut up the documentary with matches and then go back to the documentary....the better viewing experience is the whole documentary and then the matches that go with it....amazing how WWE does this style when it's not one of their boys....disappointing because I was really looking forward to it.....

    This is a great set. Sting is an icon and his fans deserve sets like these. The matches are really great and offer a nice diversity versus what is easily available on the WWE Network. So if you have that, there are plenty of matches on here that aren't available on the Network. Can't wait for the inevitable documentary Blu-ray for Sting either!

    i love this. I can finally own a piece of Sting's amazing part or wrestling history. Really great selection of matches. From the big ones to the irrelevant, each one shows you what makes Sting one of the elite. Wish Best Buy would get the name right, as it is "The Best of Sting". And it'd be great if they'd put up an image
