** How a lot of fans see his WWE run. His debut match (versus Triple H at ''WrestleMania 31'') devolved into yet another "WWE vs. WCW"-fest, and he (and, by extension, his fellow WCW alumni) lost on top of it. Likewise, while he'd been booked to win his next match (versus Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at ''Night of Champions 2015'') as compensation, an injury forced him to lose that as well. Finally, it was revealed that said injury was career-ending -- meaning that his entire WWE run as well as his final in-ring moments were spent as basically a {{Jobber}}. The only consolation is that he was paid a truckload.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Before they split, he and UltimateWarrior were a pair of interchangeable big guys/pretty boys, who evolved into a RoadWarriors ripoff, after they broke up, they eventually became two of the most distinct characters in wrestling, with very little in common except a penchant for facepaint.

--> '''Sting:''' I am not at all surprised! What happened last night, I'm not surprised about coming, from the two Outsiders. But I will say that I'm very, very surprised at ''you'', Hulk Hogan. But I shoulda known. I shoulda known when you were travelling to town in that big, fat limo! I should've known because you didn't wanna travel with the Macho Man and Total Package, and the Stinger! Ah, you were too busy, making big movies, and coming in for a little '''cameo''' appearance. You were too busy walking on the '''dark side'''! I shoulda known, when you referred to the Macho Man and the Total Package, and me, as three little '''dogs''', waiting for a chance to wrestle the great Hulk Hogan. I shoulda known when I looked into your eyes. But you know something, I made a mistake. But you made a bigger mistake, because LAST NIGHT, YOU WIPED OUT AND '''TRASHED''' EVERY SINGLE LITTLE KID! Every single person that was a part of your life, that PATTERNED THEIR LIFE AFTER '''YOU'''! '''YOU TOLD THEM TO BELIEVE IN THE MAN UPSTAIRS!''' YOU TOLD THEM, TO SAY THEIR PRAYERS AND TO '''TAKE THEIR VITAMINS'''! YOU TOLD THEM, TO BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES and you know something, it's a good thing you '''TOLD''' them to believe in themselves because they '''SURE AS HECK CAN'T BELIEVE IN YOU!''' And last but not least, to put the cherry on the top, ALL THOSE LITTLE KIDS, you told them to stick it! No. '''You stick it, Hulk.''' YOU STICK IT!

It also omits all graphic content from Sting's life -- including the [[TakeOurWordForIT supposedly bad stuff]] that led to his conversion.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainByProxyFallacy: Two of his targets while uncovering the Immortal conspiracy, Wrestling/RobVanDam and Wrestling/SamoaJoe, were themselves being conned by Jarrett, Hogan, and Bischoff. In Joe's case, though, Sting and Nash had figured this one out, telling him repeatedly not to stick up for those guys, but Joe bullheadedly insisted on continuing to fight them even after Jarrett walked out on him at Bound for Glory.
