Sting arrived in AEW, and the option is now available for him to wrestle again. Odds are if it happens, Sting will wrestle in a cinematic match. This is something that he agreed to with Tony Khan.

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Booker T spoke about Sting’s arrival in AEW. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer said that he doesn’t think Sting needs to wrestle in AEW. He’s 61-years-old, and the 55-year-old Booker T really advised against it.

“For Sting to want to have a match, I wouldn’t advise it. Okay? At 61 years old. I wouldn’t advise it. Is it worth it? I don’t know. I mean to him, it might be worth it. But I say wrestling is a young man’s sport, that’s why I got out. I said I was going to retire when I was 40 and when I turned 40 I was like, ‘I’m still pretty good, man. I’m still better than the rest of these suckas on the roster’. So I pushed it until I was 45 and then I walked away from it. And I tell you, I don’t ever itch to put my boots back on to go out there and do that ever again.”

Sting could be gearing up for a match in AEW. Team Taz seemed to present themselves as opposition, and Sting’s apparent alliance with Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin could be a very interesting addition to this story. We’ll have to see what 2021 has in store, but Sting seems willing to mix it up again whether Booker T wants him to or not.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
