At the AEW Revolution 2024 PPV on March 3rd, WCW Legend Sting will have his retirement match.

He will team up with Darby Allin one last time, to defend their AEW World Tag Team Championship against The Young Bucks.

Earlier this month on his Kliq This podcast, Nash revealed that Sting invited him to attend his final match, but Big Daddy Cool can’t because he’s affiliated to WWE.

Here’s what the former WWF & WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:

“I consider him a very close friend to be in the business. He asked me to be a part of [his retirement match]. And I just said that, you know, because of my positioning with the company with WWE, I couldn’t. I mean, I couldn’t even be there in the crowd.

I asked (for permission from WWE). You know when you ask, and there’s that 3-4 second pause. It’s like f**king when you’d be on the rug. Like, Hey, babe. We’re in Fort Wayne. I’m gonna go to Stewie’s strip joint. You got a problem with that? Nothing.”

In an update, Nash clarified the real reason why he’s not attending Sting’s last match:

“I never said [that I was on the WWE payroll]. What I said is I’m a WWE guy. I can’t have a picture of me in the crowd and underneath it says, ‘is All Elite’. I just can’t have that. It just doesn’t work. One of my closest f**king friends is Paul Levesque (Triple H).

As much as I love Steve (Borden) and I know he will only have one last match, I will watch it. We will talk about it. I haven’t been to a WrestleMania, a RAW, a SmackDown, or any of the other pay-per-views. I haven’t been to any events.

I don’t want to go to any place and be around a bunch of people, let alone wrestling people. I just don’t want to do it. I’m a hermit and that’s it.”

On his 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff gave his views on what he thinks is the real reason Nash won’t attend Sting’s final match:

“I think there’s more to it than that. I said to you that if I hadn’t just got off a week’s travel, I would want to go and be a part of it. I would go in disguise for no other reason than I wouldn’t want to be a distraction and I bet that’s part of it for Kevin.

I know Kevin pretty well. Kevin is a good friend. He can be a real stubborn, grumpy, moody, tough individual to do business with sometimes, but he’s a good friend. He’s a loyal friend. I don’t know. I’m not Kevin. I didn’t hear his comments. I’m just reacting to what I’ve read and heard you just say.

I think there’s more to it and I think the fact that Kevin doesn’t really want to go there and be a distraction on Sting’s night. He may not have said it, but I would imagine it’s part of it as well.

I understand that part especially when you’re Kevin Nash. It’s not like he’s gonna be able to sneak in. Is he gonna put on a wig and hide? I don’t think so. Sometimes Kevin, depending on the mood he’s in, he’ll say something that I was like, wow, that’s kind of crazy, but I would imagine a big part of it is he just doesn’t want to be a distraction.”
