Sting made headlines again for his All Elite Wrestling debut during the last episode of AEW Dynamite. The icon made its appearance after the fight between Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin against Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobb. Sting entered the ring and faced Cody, Dustin Rhodes, Arn Anderson and Darby Allin.
Following his appearance, Sting’s signing with All Elite Wrestling for several years was confirmed, in addition to his upcoming appearance on the next episode of Dynamite and the launch of his new merchandise on the AEW Shop.
Sting had been under contract with WWE since 2014, but his deal expired in May. Since then there has been talk about the reason for his departure from the company. Dave Meltzer, a journalist for the Wrestling Observer, has published more information about it in the latest newsletter. According to Meltzer, Sting wanted to appear full time as a character, something he was not allowed to do in WWE. In addition, he insisted on fighting The Undertaker in a cinematic match, but it was never seen well by Vince McMahon.
“WWE had no interest in him as a television character,” Meltzer wrote. “Khan wants to make him a regular on TV, although he clearly has to be protected when it comes to not getting hit. Still, it is known that Sting wanted to do a cinematic match with The Undertaker but for some reason, while fans have Beloved an Undertaker versus Sting for years, it’s never been a McMahon draw. ”
All Elite Wrestling announced that Sting will be making a new appearance next week on AEW Dynamite. The icon will talk about his debut, although the creative direction for his character is unknown.
