Giving the good news to fans, the WWE Hall of Famer Sting are now set to return to the ring after making their All Elite Wrestling debut last month. The wrestler brushed off speculation about his in-ring appearances when he spoke on an episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast.
The 61-year-old wrestler who appeared as a guest on the podcast spoke about his introduction to AEW. He recalled how he met AEW President Tony Khan years ago when he asked him to sign a baseball bat for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Khan then contacted Sting again a year ago when the wrestler was under contract with WWE.
“[Khan] didn’t call me, he texted … I was still in WWE so I have to be careful how I handle this stuff so I kept it superficial. I would say, about two months ago, somewhere around that time, I reached out and said, “Hey, are you still ready to talk?” [Khan] said “Yeah!” and here we are, ”Sting said.
Sting also claimed he didn’t like the way his WWE career ended. He pushed for a movie match against The Undertaker, but there was no deal from Vince McMahon.
“I didn’t want it to end like it ended, I was pushing to get a movie style match with ‘Taker. And probably for a litany of different reasons it just wasn’t going to happen and so when Tony called and he spoke with me and he said, “Are you interested in doing movie style games?” I said, “Yes, I am (laughs). I am.” And so I thought I would like to come back and do that and not disappear with my cock between my legs anymore. I don’t need to go out on it, but I would love to be able to go out in a positive light. “
