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. The Icon also had a stint in WWE, but it was not memorable except for an eventual WWE Hall of Fame induction in the end.
Sting debuted in WWE back at Survivor Series 2014 and had a handful of matches. However, he was forced to retire due to an injury he suffered during a match with Seth Rollins.
Sting also faced off against Triple H at WrestleMania 31 in 2015, which The Cerebral Assassin ended up winning. While speaking on Busted Open, Road Dogg was asked if Triple H beating Sting was a subliminal message from Vince McMahon that WWE was better than WCW. Road Dogg then claimed that McMahon had no idea who Sting was.
“Vince did not act like he knew who Sting was, or he knew of Sting’s gravitas. He literally asked us, ‘Is he over?’ I don’t know if it was a performance or if it’s real, but if it was a performance, he deserves an Oscar. I feel like he just didn’t watch that. I think he was so laser focused on his stuff that stuff outside his bubble doesn’t compute. He literally asked us multiple times, ‘this guy is gonna get a reaction, right?’
Even Tony Khan criticized WWE for misusing Sting. Sting will remain one of the mainstays of AEW television for a long time, as he will certainly stick with the company for years and end his career in AEW.
