Sting rode off in the sunset with his final match at AEW Revolution last month, successfully defeating The Young Bucks alongside his trusted ally, Darby Allin, and retiring as the AEW World Tag Team Champion.

Since The Icon bid farewell to the wrestling audience, there have been numerous speculations regarding Sting’s future and if there was any opportunity for him to return to AEW in some capacity other than an in-ring competitor.

However, fellow wrestling veteran and AEW personnel Jeff Jarrett has a firm belief that Sting will not be making his return to the company’s live television programming after his last appearance at AEW Revolution.

During the recent edition of Jarrett’s podcast, My World, the former WWE Intercontinental champion stated that he doesn’t see Sting returning to AEW in any non-wrestling capacity such as being an onscreen manager or doing backstage work.


“Sting is a guy that I … don’t think we’re gonna see. I think he’s gonna be attached. I think licensing and action figures and video games and the brand and everything that goes with it. But as far as manager or even producing backstage or any of those type deals, I just don’t think it’s in his DNA.”

Moreover, Jeff Jarrett even credited Sting’s presence as a true veteran of the business and has given every ounce of his blood, sweat, and tears to contribute to the wrestling industry.

“I think Sting could do exactly what Sting wants to do. As far as giving back to the industry, he was a real model as a true veteran, both onscreen and off. … [He] gave back quite a bit. So I think it’s time for Sting to be dad and grandad and everything that goes with it.”

Sting is set to make his first wrestling-based appearance at the WrestleCon event next week. With Sting having put an end to his career his way, Jeff Jarrett may be correct in his assessment of The Icon staying content in retirement and away from the cameras.
