From “every man’s nightmare” comes the Sting pre-order bonus for WWE 2K15

Due to a career spanning close to 30 years, it’s probably fitting that Sting should be a pre-order bonus for WWE 2K15.

Many may remember him mainly during the late-90s when he and on-again off-again buddy Lex Luger joined together to try and defeat Hulk Hogan’s NWO – the famous bulky man’s ill-fated attempt make a “come back” by being the bad guy. Hulk can’t be a bad guy! He’s a Real American!

Anyway, there’s more to Sting’s career than being part of the nWo rebel faction Wolfpac – he’s been wrestling sine the mid-eighties starting with the Continental Wrestling Association (CWA). Sting reached the height of his popularity during his tenure at the WCW before going into semi-retirement in 2001 after the demise of the WCW.

He’s made various appearances over the years since though, through Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), and occasionally popping up here and there to have a feud or two with folks. Rumors have persisted that he will start wrestling for WWE, but neither camp has confirmed this – yet.

Now, you can play as the man himself via two playable characters – his black-headed and blonde versions – when you pre-order WWE 2K15.

The game is out on October 28 in North America and October 31 internationally for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
