• Sting Will Retire This Year
WCW Legend Sting originally retired from in-ring competition in 2015, after suffering a neck injury during his match against Seth Rollins.
However, after The Icon signed with AEW in December 2020, he ended up returning to the ring in 2021 during his 60s!
Sting’s win-loss record in All Elite Wrestling is 13-0 as of this writing.
During an interview with D Magazine, it was revealed that Sting will retire from in-ring competition this year.
Below is what Sting said:
“So many of the guys retire and then they come back, and I thought, ‘I’m not going to be like all the rest of the guys.’ Just like I said in the beginning, ‘I’m not going to be in this in 45 years.’ And here I am.
Whatever I do, I want wrestling fans to say, ‘That was incredible.’ I don’t want them to walk away going, ‘That was embarrassing.’ I just want it to be a great memory and then to just finally, once and for all, say, ‘Adios.’”
NWA Legend Nikita Koloff said the following about Sting still wrestling:
“His wife worries. So do some of his friends. But they’re also curious. They, too, wonder how Sting’s story ends. It’s like, how many Super Bowls do I need to win? When is enough, enough?”
