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.”
