AEW brought Sting in after his WWE contract expired, and nobody expected the run Tony Khan got out of the Hall of Famer. The Stinger is on top of his game, even taking huge risks with dives during matches. Sadly, all great things must come to an end.
AEW is well on their way to selling out Wembley Stadium for All Out London. The tickets have flown out of the box office, and the company hasn’t even announced one match. It seems that Sting has a very high probability of getting a career-ending contest in the famous sporting venue.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer went into some detail about AEW All Out London, He talked about how huge that crowd will be before mentioning how perfect it would be for AEW to give Sting his retirement match in Wembley Stadium.
To me, and this is my thought, you have to do the Sting retirement at this, because where is Sting — where you gonna get 60, 70, 80,000 people, whatever it is for Sting’s retirement. That’s too perfect. You can’t get that in the United States.
It was noted that this is an incredibly unique opportunity for AEW to give Sting a massive send-off. It might not be once in a lifetime, because it’s unclear whether AEW will repeat their Wembley Stadium show, but it would certainly be an amazing way to end Sting’s career.
The subject of Sting’s retirement comes up every so often, but most of the conversation about the Stinger refers to how he’s still able to do everything he can at 64-year-old. If anything, he’s certainly proven his worth in AEW, as he enjoyed quite an amazing last run.
We’ll have to see what AEW decides to do for Sting’s last match. If it goes down at AEW All In London, then fans might start seeing writing on the walls for that match soon enough.
