• WWE Hall Of Famer Thinks Sting Will End His Career In AEW
During his Hall Of Fame Radio show, two time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T discussed the rumors of Sting signing with AEW. He said that there’s a chance it could happen.
Below is what Booker T said:
“Brother, you know what? Anything can happen in this business. These old guys, man, always feel like they wanna jump. They always feel like they got something left in the tank. Always feel like they got one last run in them.
I would not doubt for one minute that we see Sting back inside of the squared circle wrestling against…Darby Allin. Sting vs. Darby, you know what I mean?
WCW shut down and Sting went radio silent for a long time up until TNA came along and then he was a part of that, but that did not to my estimation live up to the expectation of what we wanted to see from Sting. So he had to make a trip to WWE to get that time.
Sting was no spring chicken. Sting was the oldest guy in the locker room. Sting could not go out there and perform at the level he once could as well as father time catches up with everyone.
I’m sure he would have liked a better run. I’m sure he would have liked to made a bigger impact in WWE. I’m sure Sting, his mind wanted to do so much more than his body would let him and once you get an injury like that in WWE, they put you on a no-touch list.
So him doing something there is slim to none as far as going out there and having that WrestleMania moment with The Undertaker, slim to none.
So for him to see him make the jump to AEW. I could see that. I could see Sting doing that because right now Sting probably still feels like he’s got something left to give as well as Sting probably feels like he wants to end it.
A lot of wrestlers have that bravado. They want to go out some special kind of way, you know what I’m saying. I think the rumors are true and I think they’re saying, I’m just reading that ‘WWE Hall of Famer will not appear at Double or Nothing PPV,’ but that just could be smoke and mirrors.”
