• Major Update On Sting’s In-Ring Status
As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, WWE Hall of Famer Sting took his first televised bump in over 5 years, when he got powerbombed by Brian Cage.
You can watch it below:
Fans were concerned after this as Sting will turn 62 years old next month and has neck issues.
On the Dynamite post-show, AEW commentator Tony Schiavone was asked why AEW allowed Sting to take such a bump, to which Tony replied:
“Because he obviously wants to and he obviously thinks it’s good for business.”
Tony then revealed that Sting was fine after the powerbomb and that The Icon can’t wait for his in-ring return:
“As scary as that may be, and I know what you’re getting at, he’s ok. So there you go.”
Tony noted that he was also shocked & scared after Sting took that bump.
During a recent interview with PWInsider, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that Sting has been fully cleared to return to in-ring action.
Here’s what Khan said about Sting’s training:
“He’s been cleared, he’s been fully cleared. He’s been training with Darby and sparring partners and he’s been fully cleared to wrestle.
In his training, one thing he’s done to get ready with his sparring partners is a powerbomb. In terms of getting ready for this, I was more than fine with it and in fact called it.
At that point when he’s taking them in training, it’s time for the live crowd. So he was completely cleared to do it and wanted to do it and he wanted to get out there and wrestle.
Sting is going to be on Dynamite looking for payback and all bets are off now. Sting’s cleared to wrestle and he wants to wrestle and this is how he wanted to end his wrestling career – in the ring in AEW, and come in and go out the way he always wanted to go out with…great matches.”
Brian Cage & Ricky Starks of Team Taz will face the team of Sting & TNT Champion Darby Allin in a Street Fight at AEW Revolution 2021 PPV on March 7.
