Pro wrestling legend Sting shocked the world when he made his debut in AEW last year in December. Since then he has been featured heavily on AEW television being paired up with Darby Allin.

Sting’s first match in AEW featured him teaming up with Darby Allin and facing off against Ricky Stars and Brian Cage at AEW Revolution in a cinematic street fight match. Their second match together saw them squaring off against Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page at AEW Double Or Nothing.

Despite being well over 60, Sting certainly has been competing at an unexpectedly high level and that has certainly impressed fans. It seems Sting has inspired a WWE Hall Of Famer as well.

While speaking Busted Open Radio, AEW’s latest acquisition Mark Henry talked about how Sting inspired and motivated him to compete in the ring again at the age of 50.

“Sting has made me feel like fifty is not old, Sting is one of those guys that, and if there’s anyone out there in this world, I’d appreciate if you tweeted this out, Sting is a credit to the elder statesmen in wrestling. He has made me feel there’s a lot that I can still offer, not just behind the scenes, but possibly in the ring.”

The WWE Hall Of Famer is set to be an analyst for AEW’s upcoming show AEW Rampage. We will have to wait and see who Mark Henry’s opponent will be when he finally decides to wrestle and just how well he will perform in his return match.
