I'd much rather they feature original Sting instead of Crow Sting, but whatever.

The one true Sting.

@redwing42: Sounds like it will be both incarnations of Sting in the game.

@redwing42: they're both in, at least that's what I gather by 2 generations of Sting. I have always been a WWF guy, but I watch everything I can and did as a kid also. This commercial go me freakin' pumped, love that song, love that character, I can't wait

Posted by Spitznock

Awesome trailer, imo.

About time.

Yay! Strings Sting theme.

Posted by JohnFordColey

Yay for Sting! Boo for Pre-Order DLC!

This got the live crowd so hyped last night, and then all their hopes were shattered.

Such a top quality promo, the best wrestling related thing that aired in months. Pity it was likely not internally produced within WWE - and probably all done on 2Ks end. I actually don't think WWE could even pull something like this off in its current state.

@alex: But will there be two generations of Robocop?

We're sending our looove down the well :')

All of these modern wrestling games are the Sonic games of wrestling games.

Really enjoy @alex hyping himself into reluctant, but certain, disappointment yet again.

I know so little about wrestling that I actually thought this was about the musician

Edited by NME

That was a dumb way to introduce a new wrestler to this wrestling game, but then they said 80's Sting was included so we're cool.

Thanks. This will be on non-stop for the rest of the day, now.

Me too. The possibility to play as Sting from the Police on a wrestling game would make me want to rent a wrestling game though.

The quick cut clip at the end of the video makes me remember the days of when Sting terrorized the nWo....so good.

Hope his cornball theme is in there for "surfer" Sting.

He's the MAAAAAYN CALLED STANNNNG

Sting in the game is cool, but them actually making a good game for once would be even cooler.

Couldn't care less about the game, I'm here for the music videos.

Hasn't he been Crow Sting longer than he has been original recipe at this point?

Uhh good way to get me to buy anything!

Posted by Muppio

Am i gonna have to buy this again just cause of 1 dude? god damnit.

Posted by Ronald

He's the man called Sting.

He does this. He does that.

Edited by laserguy

If I can put sting makeup on Ultimate Warrior or Andre or Austin I'll buy. Man now the idea that I can Sting out the Undertaker has me going.

What if you could sting makeup a guy and he runs in and he's an unknown. He's got a chair, who was that? He hit the Honkey Tonk Man with a chair.

Posted by Pop

Is Sting with the WWE now? He's done with TNA?

I hate pre-ordering anything but I am marking-out so hard that this has to be done. Damn you marketing!

Whoa there, one step at a time.

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Edited by Trace

If you're going to debut Sting in anything WWE, this is just about the perfect way to do that. Marked out like a little kid over this video. Plus, Sting's Crow music is kind of the best for this sort of dramatics.

Count me in as another sucker who will probably pre-order and be disappointed terribly.

I watched this earlier today and thought it was a pretty good overview of Stings entire history, but the video quality is pretty poor.

Question is... will Sting accept the invitation to Vader's White Castle of Fear(TM)???

Call me crazy but I'd rather see him actually appear in front of a crowd that would likely flip the hell out for him, rather than appearing for the first time after a 25+ year wait...in an advertisement for a video game.

This was literally the only guy left of any notability that had never appeared in WWE*, it's a shame that more wasn't made of it.

*Disco Inferno does not count

Posted by theshauncannon

As rad as this was, last years ultimate warrior commercial was better. Although, the orchestra version of stings theme is bad ass.

Posted by Trace

@kanerobot: I mean more the orchestra and dramatics than what they debuted him in.

I probably won't pre-order, but this was a great short clip / advertisement. Definitely gets you excited about the idea of him in WWE that's for sure.

Edited by Fram

The live crowd went nuts when this trailer played, then immediately started booing when they realised it was only for the game and that he wouldn't actually be showing up.

Posted by Plipster

Wow...as a wrestling fan and a Police fan. These jokes are so 20 years ago.

Edited by Tanstaafl

The only place I knew sting from was from the movie Dune.. Learning years later he was a wrestler and singer made his performance in Dune make so much more sense to me :-)

Edited by UnsolvedParadox

Not gonna lie, I'm really looking forward to bouncing from turnbuckle to turnbuckle and unleashing Stinger Splashes on everyone.

I think a change of developer will be required before there's any meaningful improvement in the WWE games. Yuke's have been lazily churning them out, barely changing anything except the roster and game modes year after year for over a decade. Their other output during that time has been garbage too, such as the terrible Pacific Rim game from last year. Hopefully 2K will give it to a fresh team in the next couple of years and wash away the last stinky remnants of THQ and Yuke's.

Posted by Gantrathor

I had no idea that there was a wrestler called Sting, so I thought that this was announcing that Sting the musician was going to be in the game.
