WWE.com made the official announcement today that the first confirmed inductee into the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame will be six-time former WCW World Heavyweight Champion “The Icon” Sting. With a career spanning over three decades, Sting has racked up several accomplishments and even more memories, having six reigns as WCW World Heavyweight Champion, one reign as NWA World Heavyweight Champion (under the WCW banner), two reigns as WCW United States Champion, two reigns as the WCW International World Heavyweight Champion, one reign as the NWA World Television Champion, and three reigns as WCW World Tag Team Champion (Sting is also a four-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion and a member of the TNA Hall of Fame, but don’t expect WWE to mention that). Throughout his memorable career that includes time in the NWA, WCW, TNA and WWE, Sting has had countless marquee matches against the likes of Ric Flair, Vader, Lex Luger, the nWo, Goldberg, “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, and, more recently, Triple H and Seth Rollins. Until 2014, Sting was considered the biggest wrestling star to have never stepped foot in a WWE ring. On April 2, 2016 in Dallas, TX, Sting will take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame, joining the best of the best in WWE history, including some names he’s very familiar with.
