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 one of the mainstays of WCW at its peak, Sting is well aware of how the current pro wrestling world differs from the WCW days. While speaking during the post-AEW Revolution media scrum, Sting stated addressed comparisons between WCW and AEW. Sting also said that WCW was the best time in wrestling for him, which suggests that WCW was a better era than AEW.
“I think it starts from the top and works its way down. We had a period of time with WCW where Eric Bischoff came on board and Hogan, Hall, Nash, the nWo, Buff Bagwell, Lex Luger, The Steiner Brothers, Big Poppa Pump. But everybody was pointing in the same direction, and marching to the same beat for about a year. Maybe 18 months if we are lucky. And that was the best time ever in wrestling for me.
But with AEW — and it started with Eric and worked its way down — with AEW, it’s Tony Khan telling you he’s a people person. I watch him talk with the grips, moving cable around, and he really cares about his talent and treats everybody with respect. He’s a giver, you know? So, he’s like a player-coach almost, you want to perform for the guy.”
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Sting and Darby Allin as they came out to help Matt Hardy when he was getting beat down by Andrade and the rest of the Andrade Family Office.
