TNA to Capitalize on Sting’s WWE Run with New ‘BEST OF STING’ DVD This Year?

March 24, 2015 by Daniel Bee

Sting in TNA Wrestling

Yesterday, TNA Wrestling announced a new DVD set on Sting called “The Best of Sting” for April 1st release and listed it for pre-order on their retail site, ShopTNA.

An official trailer for the DVD was also put out by the company. However, within mere hours that trailer and all references to the DVD on ShopTNA and social media were pulled.

UPDATE: The trailer is now playable once again at the above link.

The material and sale of the DVD being removed so quickly led to speculation that it may have had something to do with WWE, since Sting is under contract and about to perform at WrestleMania. WWE’s own Sting DVD last year was also titled “The Best of Sting”.

If TNA/Impact does go ahead with the DVD this year, it will be their second Home Video title on Sting to date – the first being “Sting: Return of an Icon” released back in 2006.

    The Sting DVD is now available for pre-order on ShopTNA. I doubt WWE pulled it, TNA probably just released info too early. They don’t have the full match listing and doesn’t mention if its 1 or 2 disc, will probably wait til someone gets it and release the full info before i order it.

    ROH has done this in the past. I remember in 2011 when Bryan won the World title ROH released a DVD on him the following week…same with Cesaro when he won the US title.

  2. Mark Markson says:

    I find it odd if WWE is to blame for this. Ring of Honor has released several DVDs with Bryan Danielson and CM Punk while both were working for WWE. If ROH can release those titles, why can’t TNA?

    • Matt says:

      WWE hasn’t pulled out every stop to prevent the growth of ROH like they have done to TNA throughout the years.

    • James Irvine says:

      Maybe because TNA is a WWE competitor and ROH isn’t

      • Mark Markson says:

        I don’t know… I think TNA is a so much smaller company than WWE. I haven’t really ever seen them as a threat to WWE, and I don’t think they ever will be. Remember when TNA tried running Impact head to head with Raw? If I remember correctly, Raw got the better ratings, and TNA shortly after moved Impact back to Thursday.

  3. Anonymous says:

    WWE pulling it is stupid and completely unfounded. TNA has the right to release TNA footage that they own. WWE has the right to footage they own.

    TNA could make DVDs all day long of TNA talent in WWE or NJPW or whatever, and so long as they didn’t use footage that isn’t theirs, there’s no legal case. I mean look, they released Ultimate Matches while Christian and Truth were in WWE, and there was no legal issue.

  4. Jakki Steal says:

    I would buy a best of Sting TNA DVD in a heartbeat!
    🙂

  5. Brad Attitude says:

    The Best of Sting was a very misleading title on WWE’s part as it only two of his biggest matches in his career while everything else was either filler or rare forgotten matches. Hopefully TNA doesn’t make the same mistake with the title and actually shows his best matches as the headline suggests.

  6. SRB says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but TNA appeared to have stopped producing DVDs all together. They haven’t put out a single one in 2015 as I see none on their site, and their 2014 catalog seems incomplete. But, I know they did change many things. For example, I know Lockdown was just a show and was no longer considered a PPV. If they release this Sting DVD, it will be their first official release in a while, right?

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i think the last official tna dvd to hit stores was engima the best of jeff hardy vol 2 that was 2011 so its been few years since tna has made any new bio dvds. mostly tna dvds are just on there website are the ppvs and the one night onlys
