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. He has impressed tons of fans since his debut for the company, but some feel he lost his mystique.

Despite being over 60, Sting certainly has been competing at an unexpectedly high level, and that has certainly impressed fans and pro wrestlers alike. He has also taken part in cinematic matches in the past.

While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette criticized AEW for frequently booking Sting and making him lose his mystique in the process.

“Oh, I forgot Sting’s still there. Yes, you keep Sting. You try to figure out what has motivated Sting to dive off the balcony at 62 years of age for these f**king cretins. But yeah, you know Sting is of name, he’s a legend, he’s an icon, and you play to that strength, instead of trying to make him one of the boys and just show up when it snows in Florida.


Two pay-per-views a year, he would make you his salary back and more, in some feature match, not the main event but a feature match. And then you make people hungry for it again because it doesn’t happen for another six months.”

Sting last competed with Darby Allin, as they faced The House Of Black on the Grand Slam edition of AEW Rampage. We will have to wait and see when Sting will return to AEW television.
