AEW announces the signing of Sting

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

All Elite Wrestling issued the following press release on Wednesday following Sting’s debut on AEW Dynamite.

December 2, 2020 – “Winter is Coming” was already guaranteed to be the biggest episode of AEW DYNAMITE yet, but on a night packed with tremendous clashes, the debut of wrestling legend Sting took the world by surprise.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever, Sting’s jaw-dropping appearance sent electricity through the crowd at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Fla., and throughout the wrestling world, when he stepped in the ring.

AEW has also confirmed tonight that it has officially signed Sting to a full-time, multi-year agreement.

“The surprise introduction of Sting was a great way to celebrate our biggest episode of Dynamite yet,” said Tony Khan, CEO and GM of AEW. “When AEW launched, I was ecstatic to bring wrestling back to TNT after a very long absence. Sting defeated the legendary Ric Flair in the final wrestling match to be shown on TNT for more than 18 years until the debut of Dynamite in 2019. Now, almost two decades later, it’s such a thrill to welcome Sting to AEW and bring him back home to TNT!”

Tune in to AEW DYNAMITE on TNT next week to see why Sting is joining the most boundless promotion in all of wrestling.

Powell’s POV: It will be very interesting to see if Sting opts to have another match in an AEW ring. He suffered a neck injury that ended his WWE career, but he has indicated more recently that he feels good. Either way, it was a big moment when Sting showed up on Dynamite and I am looking forward to hearing him speak for the first time in AEW next week.

  1. One less spot/money for a young, up-and-coming talent, who needs T.V. time to get better. Arn, Tully, now Sting. Maybe they’re eventually going to reform The 4 Horsemen for the 100th time.

    • STING IS in aew for the money plain and simple. tony kahn is a wrestling nerd who has a billionaire father. The khan family has detroyed the jagaurs football team for the past eight years to the point where the team may be shipped off to london in the near future.

      STING IS Almost 62 years old and he has spinal stenosis. I am proud of vince mmcahon for cutting sting lose from wwe . Sting will never het his match with taker now or ever especially since 55 year old mark calloway retired from active wrestling.

    • Soneone else could get a serious rub out of Sting’s presence. If last night was any indication, that person could be Darby.

      • Maybe 61 YEAR OLD STING will giving homeless punk darby doofus the “rub” by sodomizing him with his baseball bat. sting was an drug user, an adulterer, a fake christian, a money hungry loser ; he shiuld add same sex rapist to the list.
