    A few from my list, man Sting/Hogan for Starrcade one of the most hyped matches they had and boy it didn't meet the hype at all. The match itself was okay, but with the screwy finish at the end really brings it down. Sting/Triple H should of been on my list, how could I forget that match, I would of had Sting win that match to get that Wrestlemania moment and yes I dug the NWO/DX craziness in that match. I might need to check out those tag matches right now.

    That match hasn't even come up yet, you voted for another terrible Sting/Hogan match.

    Indeed I looked at the video and I thought it was the Starrcade one before reading the ranking scrolling down to the others my bad. I really want to see that Rude/Sting that ended the career for him, never seen it have you Crocker?

    Nice to see Hoho doesn't know what he voted for and that Fuji decided to troll out some spots

    Great start.

    Re: Greatest Sting Match Ever - the Countdown

    I had a few contenders knocking around that 25 spot. As I was trying to watch as much surfer Sting as I could, I noticed he did a tour of All Japan in 1989 and this match made tape. It's worked at a pretty quick pace and the crowd are really into the action, but really I've just listed it because Sting does a crazy running dive over the turnbuckle to the outside which you don't see every day (think Ricochet does it senton style). I couldn't believe he threw it into a fairly short match that he was going to lose. I don't really think it's Sting 25th best match, but I knew no-one else would vote for it as it's obscure.

    Styles/Sting was disappointing and the big deal made of AJ winning the title never made much sense to me as he'd been world champion multiple times before and most fans already viewed him as the ace of the company since 2002.

    I knew somebody wouldn't resist troll voting the Hardy match. A match that says more about TNA's management of the situation than anything else.

    The WCW Sting/Hogan matches are pants, really surprised they've got votes. The TNA one I can kind of see because it had no right to be anywhere near as entertaining as it was at their age and it turned into a pretty hot nostalgia fest.

    The Sting/Steiners 6 man was good stuff. He has so many tags in the early 90s involving great talent that they're always watchable.

    Couldn't find the Dontaku Rude match anywhere, not even on New Japan World. Interested to see how it was.

    I have nothing to say on Sting/HHH that I haven't said before so I'll let someone else tackle that.

    I had to find a place for the Mania match after constantly defending it.

    On the other hand, I actually enjoyed the Sting/Hogan one for the post-match shenanigans and Hogan's shirt rip and I've always had a soft spot for that lethal lottery match. Glad to see Crock found a spot for it too.

    I'm a bit surprised to see Sting/HHH already. In a good way.

    Re: Greatest Sting Match Ever - the Countdown

    The thing I never understood about the Sting/Hardy match is that there's a few people who actually popped for that finish.

    I don't care how big a mark you are. If this happened when I was 8 and still thought wrestling was real and if I was a massive Sting fan who thought Jeff Hardy was the anti-Christ or something, I would still be going "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT SHIT?! WHERE'S MY MATCH?"

    So what is wrong with these people?

    Fair play.

    But still, this is the insanity I expect from the people working in TNA, not the ones giving them money.

    Victory Road 2011 took place from the Impact Zone. Those fans got in for free.

    This is starting to make sense. Can you buy booze in Universal Studios? Because I can totally see myself getting steaming and ironically enjoying a TNA show.
