Consider this a written vote for Austin based on personal preference. The man changed wrestling in the late 90's and he did it almost single handedly. His presence forced McMahon to listen to the public and the boom that followed was incredible. He dragged talent up to his level. Sting is great, no doubt. His early stuff was remarkable. His energy, charisma were all off the charts. But he cant match Austin who would grind and pound on him.
