21. “The Icon” Sting
Event: WCW Starrcade 1997
Date: December 28, 1997
Venue: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
Theme Used: “Crow” by WCW and Jimmy Hart
The Icon of World Championship Wrestling comes in at No. 21 on our list: The man they call Sting, one of the legends of this business and one who has also seen several iterations of his entrance over his illustrious 30-year career.
Whether he was sporting the blonde flat top and colorful face paint coming out to “Man Called Sting” or sporting long black hair with Crow-like face paint rocking a trench coat and baseball bat to the theme entitled “Crow,” written by WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart. The Icon of WCW always captured the imagination of pro wrestling fans young and old alike.
Sting always knew how to evolve himself throughout his professional wrestling career to keep him fresh and at the forefront of fans’ minds. From WCW to IMPACT Wrestling and to, finally, the WWE, Sting has done it all in this business and has earned his rightful spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Unfortunately, the one thing Sting was never able to do was have a dream match with the Undertaker at WrestleMania. It’s a dream match fans still wish to this day we could have seen, because even if the match didn’t live up to the hype, their entrances going into it would have stolen the show.
