• WWE Hall Of Famer Could Still Be In Talks With AEW
As we noted earlier, ‘The Icon’ Sting is no longer under contract with WWE. Due to this reason, speculation of him debuting in AEW started. Cody Rhodes’ tweet about it just added fuel to the fire.
The Wrestling Observer noted that if there was no such thing happening, they would’ve been told. But the silence points towards a different story.
“The reason for this is that Sting no longer has a merchandising contract with WWE. This has coupled with Sting starting to tweet AEW things. That also would indicate no longer being under contract with WWE. Cody tweeted something like he heard something.
As far as AEW goes, this is what I can say. I’ve asked and gotten no response to the question and if there was nothing going on the odds are I’d be told there was nothing going on.”
