Sting “Pushed For Undertaker Match In WWE”, Will Wrestle In AEW


Sting has revealed on this week’s AEW Unrestricted podcast how he didn’t want his WWE run to end the way it did, stating how he “pushed” for a cinematic match with The Undertaker.

“I didn’t want to end the way it ended. I was pushing to get a cinema-style match with Undertaker. For probably a litany of reasons, it just wasn’t going to happen. When Tony called and spoke with me, he said, ‘Are you interested in doing cinema-style matches?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I am.’ I’d like to come back and do that and not disappear with my tail between my legs. I don’t have to go out on top, I’d like to go out in a positive light.”

Sting’s comments regarding a cinematic match in AEW come after Tony Schiavone was asked about The Icon’s future in AEW on the Dynamite post-show and said he believed Sting would wrestle again.

“He is a member of the talent roster. I think we’re going to end up seeing him in a match or two. I don’t think you’re going to see Sting wrestle on a regular basis on AEW Dynamite, but you will see him wrestle.”

Shortly after Sting debuted in AEW, the company’s roster page had him listed with a win-loss record – suggesting we would see the WCW legend wrestle again.
