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.
