Sting shocked the world when he debuted in AEW in December 2020. Since then, he has been featured heavily on AEW television, being paired up with Darby Allin. Sting has been pulling off death-defying stunts since as early as AEW Revolution 2021, but his career will be ending next year.
Despite being 64 now, Sting has been competing at an unexpectedly high level, which has impressed fans and pro wrestlers alike. Over the years, the Stinger has performed various insane spots, including jumping from the ladder onto a table, among other things.
Sting will be ending his in-ring career at AEW Revolution next year, as fans wonder who his final opponent will be. While speaking to Steve Hermon of BBC West Midlands, Tony Khan was asked how much responsibility he feels in getting Sting’s retirement right. Khan made it clear that he aims for Sting to appear at AEW All In next year as an ambassador after retirement.
“I think it’s incredibly important for us to make sure Sting gets a great send-off. He absolutely deserves it. He’s a legend in wrestling, with decades of experience. Sting is beloved, and I’m very excited about Sting’s retirement tour, which has embarked. He’ll be finishing up at Revolution. Of course, Sting was a huge part of the original AEW All In at Wembley Stadium. When Sting came out to Metallica, what a moment. ‘Seek and Destroy’ will be something that will live on in perpetuity in the video library as a great moment. I hope Sting will come. He’ll be retired at that point, but I hope he’ll still come be an ambassador because he’s in many ways AEW’s greatest legend, and I think he’s one of wrestling’s greatest legends.”
We will have to wait and see what will become of Sting in the end, as fans would love fo him to have a proper retirement match – something that many feel WWE deprived him of, all those years ago.
