Steven James Borden, better known by his ring name Sting, is an American professional wrestler signed to All Elite Wrestling.
He is mainly remembered for his long militancy in World Championship Wrestling, a federation in which he fought continuously from 1987 to 2001, so much so that he became its main wrestler in the early nineties; he is also known for his stints between 2002 and 2014 in Total Nonstop Action and in WWE between 2014 and 2015.
Borden is a twelve-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship six times, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship four times, and the NWA World Heavyweight Championship twice. Sting also held the WCW United States Championship twice, the WCW World Tag Team Championship three times, once each with The Giant, Lex Luger and Kevin Nash, and the TNA World Tag Team Championship once, with Kurt Angle.
In the early eighties he embarked on a relationship with Susan Himes with whom he had three children: Garrett, Steven Jr. and Gracie. The couple married in May 1986, but divorced in October 2010. In April 2015, he married a second time to Sabine Glenn.
Borden holds all rights to the name Sting but allowed rock singer Gordon Matthew Sumner, former leader of the Police and now known as Sting, to use it for a symbolic fee of $1. The two came to this agreement to work around the copyright law.
