VIDEO: Sting makes surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con

Wrestling icon Sting made his first live appearance as a member of the WWE family. However, it was not in a WWE ring or at a WWE event.

Sting (real name Steve Borden) made a surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con International Thursday during a panel that was co-hosted by the WWE and Mattel.

The panel, which featured, Daniel Bryan, Hulk Hogan and Paul Heyman, joined Mattel brand managers to talk about the latest line of WWE action figures.

It was then announced that the first-ever Sting WWE action figure will be released, which brought out the man himself.
