Sting showed up in AEW, and the first thought was that the 61-years-old Hall of Famer wasn’t going to wrestle. A new report from Sports Illustrated blew that idea out of the water, but how much is Sting going to be around?
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Sting did not get any neck surgery following his Clash Of Champions match against Seth Rollins. He did retire, but it appears he will be as involved as possible with AEW, on multiple levels.
“Whatever he can do, he can do. You know Cody, as a kid his favorite wrestler was Sting. You know we’re going to see a lot of him. It’s not like he’s going to be on twice a year. I mean he’s going to be a regular television character on this show.”
Sting has multiple years left in AEW, and there are plenty of interesting stories to tell. They will apparently feature him on a regular basis, so we’ve only seen the beginning of Sting’s return to TNT.
We’ll have to see what they book Sting for, but they’re obviously going to want to take care of The Icon. They certainly seemed to peg Darby Allin and Cody Rhodes as his first two opponents.
