Sting is best known for his tenure in World Championship Wrestling (WCW); owing to his loyalty to the now-defunct promotion, Sting came to be dubbed as "The Franchise" of WCW during the 1990s and early 2000s. He is also well known for his tenure with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Sting is a fifteen-time world champion, having held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship six times, the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WWA World Heavyweight Championship once, and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship four times.

He is a WCW Triple Crown winner, has held 21 total championships between WCW and TNA, and is the only man to hold the NWA, WCW, and TNA world titles in his career. Sting has headlined many major pay-per-views since the late 1980s. He closed the 1989, 1990, and 1997 editions of WCW's premier annual event, Starrcade, in singles matches, and won the Battlebowl main event of the 1991 incarnation. He also headlined TNA's flagship event Bound for Glory from 2006–2009.

Sting began making non-archive appearances in WWE-branded media in April 2014. Although not contracted to the company, he wrestled once for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) on the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro on March 26, 2001, shortly after the WWF acquired that promotion. Sting's legacy within professional wrestling has been perpetuated by WWE in recent years: the organization has named him as both the greatest superstar in WCW history, and the greatest superstar never to wrestle in a WWE ring.

Sting was announced as the inaugural inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame in June 2012. Pro Wrestling Illustrated readers voted Borden "Most Popular Wrestler of the Year" a record four times (shared with John Cena).
