Sting made history at Winter Is Coming. He appeared on AEW television months after his WWE contract expired. What’s going on with his contract status now?
After Sting shocked the world, Tony Schiavone relayed a message to AEW fans from Tony Khan. He said that AEW has signed Stinger to a multi-year contract.
Tony Khan was elated to announce that Sting has signed with All Elite Wrestling. Since Dynamite’s beginning they have sought to entertain and surprise fans. Sting’s arrival in AEW was definitely a big moment.
“The surprise introduction of Sting was a great way to celebrate our biggest episode of Dynamite yet. When AEW launched, I was ecstatic to bring wrestling back to TNT after a very long absence. Sting defeated the legendary Ric Flair in the final wrestling match to be shown on TNT for more than 18 years until the debut of Dynamite Now, almost two decades later, it’s such a thrill to welcome Sting to AEW and bring him back home to TNT!”
We’re unsure what AEW will do with Sting on their payroll, but he will get a chance to speak next week. You can watch the footage from Sting’s debut in the video below.
