Sting shocked the world when he made his debut in AEW back in December 2020. Since then he has been featured heavily on AEW television being paired up with Darby Allin. Many AEW stars want a piece of Sting, including Paul Wight.
Despite being over 60, Sting certainly has been competing at an unexpectedly high level and that has certainly impressed fans and pro wrestlers alike. For many fans, he has hardly lost a step.
Being a veteran, Sting has a wealth of knowledge to give to the younger generation of pro wrestlers. While speaking during the post-AEW Revolution media scrum, Sting offered some advice to the younger talent as he warned them not to be lazy in the ring.
“I’ve seen so many loose cannons over the years, so many people that believe that they can break into the wrestling business easy if they just dye their hair or come up with some kind of crazy gimmick. I’ll tell them all pretty much the same thing: [be] quick to listen, slow to speak. Learn first. Keep your mouth shut. Just learn how to respect the business and everyone who came before you.
Don’t ever dog it out there. Wrestling fans will look right through that. They know when someone’s just kind of going through the motions versus somebody who’s thinking about how their wrestling gear looks. What their physique looks like and they’re giving it their all in the ring and they’re putting it out there. They’re taking risks. Fans see that and they appreciate it.”
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Sting and Darby Allin now that their feud with the Hardy Family Office and Andrade has seemingly come to an end.
