Prior to signing WWE, Sting`s legacy was immortalized by the organization. He celebrated him as “one of the elites of sports entertainment,” and ranked him first in the list of the greatest wrestlers who have never performed in WWE, and the greatest stars in WCW history.  In 2013, Sting`s WCW World Heavyweight Championship Contest against Diamond Dallas Page declared April 26, 1999 as the biggest match ever broadcast on WCW`s flagship Monday Nitro program.
