In the world of professional wrestling, there are the stars of today, and then there are legends that surpass time. The man called Sting falls into both categories and in turn can only be called “The Icon.” Throughout his unparalleled career in professional wrestling, Sting has been a multi-time World Champion, having defeated such stars as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, and countless others. After a two year hiatus from the ring, Sting exploded back on to the scene in 2006 to reignite an unsettled feud with Jeff Jarrett. Within his first six months in TNA, he captured his 8th Heavyweight Title at TNA’s most illustrious event, Bound for Glory. Sting would continue to mark Bound for Glory as his territory. He captured the TNA World Heavyweight Title three consecutive years at Bound for Glory. Each victory would continue to cement his legacy, as he defeated Jeff Jarrett, Kurt Angle, and Samoa Joe.
