• TNT Officials Were Not Happy With Sting’s Surprise AEW Debut
During a discussion with his long-time friend, fellow Attitude Era Legend Christian (Cage) on an episode of ‘Talk Is Jericho’, Chris Jericho revealed that TNT Officials did not like the surprise AEW debut of Sting on the December 2, 2020 edition of Dynamite, despite the fact that the promotion kept it a secret that did not leak anywhere till it happened (which is very rare these days).
Keep in mind that TNT already featured Sting from September 1995 until March 2001, when World Championship Wrestling’s A-show ‘Monday Nitro’ ran on the channel.
Here’s what Y2J had to say:
“I know when we had Sting as a surprise, the network was like, don’t do that again. That’s why Paul Wight (Big Show) was announced on social media because TNT said we don’t want surprises. We want to take advantage of the rating.
So I think we had a big surprise, then we had a big announcement and then we use that big announcement to announce the next big surprise.
I think that’s one of the reasons too to kind of spread it out a bit as well.”
