• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Sting Has Become The MVP Of AEW At The Age Of 62
In December 2020, WCW Legend Sting shocked the world by joining Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling, after he retired from professional wrestling in 2015 (official announcement in 2016) due to an injury, but was since cleared by the doctors again.
The Icon used to wrestle for World Championship Wrestling from 1988 until its final night on March 26, 2001, but then went to TNA (full-time) in 2006 and didn’t join WWE until 2014.
Word on the street is that – after eventually getting cleared to wrestle again – Sting was hoping to finally have his dream match against The Undertaker, but when The Deadman officially retired in November 2020, the former nWo Wolfpac member left the WWE and joined the competition a month later.
In the main event of this week’s AEW Dynamite, Sting teamed up with CM Punk and Darby Allin to defeat MJF & FTR in a 6-man tag team match.
This episode drew over 1 million viewers (which AEW hasn’t touched in a while), and the credit for it is going to Sting and his incredible performance.

His former WCW rival, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair, took to Twitter and praised Sting’s current AEW run, by tweeting the following:
“Congratulations @Sting! I’ve Been Telling The World, When You’re Great You’ll Always Get A Rating! Everyone Else Can Dare To Dream! WOOOOO! You Just Became At The Age Of 62, The MVP Of @AEW!”
