• There Might Be ‘Something’ Between Sting & AEW
‘The Icon’ Sting has been quite active on Twitter over the past month. His interactions with AEW talent online sparked rumors of him signing with the company.
The Wrestling Observer noted that there might be something between Sting and AEW, but the situation isn’t clear yet:
“Obviously he’s got no relationship with WWE which really surprised me because it’s one of those guys I didn’t think would have no relations with. I mean technically right now Ric Flair is the same way. Ric Flair’s a free agent.
But with Sting, I’ve got to think there is smoke to the fire, number one, because he’s tweeting about AEW, and Sting’s not going to do that because he’s not paying attention to anything unless he’s got an interest in it, and that they’re kind of acknowledging it, and also, when I ask about it, I get no answer.
If there was nothing to it, I’m sure they would say there’s nothing to it. So I think there’s something to it. If they already have a deal, they’re going to announce it on their terms because sometimes they’ll wait a couple of weeks. And if they don’t have a deal, it’s probably something they’re at least contemplating.”
AEW is set to host Double Or Nothing this Saturday, and Sting’s appearance could be a possibility.
