Sting is considered a legend in the pro wrestling world, who made a mark in numerous companies throughout his career. Sting would then shock the world after debuting in AEW back in December 2020. Sting is grateful that elders are treated with respect in AEW.

Being well over 60 years old, the Stinger has shown that he can still compete at a reasonable level. This includes him performing insane stunts that no one his age should be doing.

While speaking to The Schmo, Sting was asked if being in AEW reminded him of his days in WCW. Sting made it clear he is grateful elders are treated with respect in AEW.

“Of course, this is wrestling, it’s going to be reminiscent of those old days for sure, but it is completely different and new, a whole new generation of wrestlers. I could be dad to more than half the guys here, maybe even granddad. I’m grateful that they have the level of respect that they have for their elders and somebody like me who is trying to come back and play in the game a little while longer.”


Sting competed at the AEW Forbidden Door event, where he kicked off the trios match by jumping off the entrance ramp onto the Bullet Club members. He ended up winning the match as well. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Sting.
