AEW has confirmed the signing of WCW legend Sting via a press release, moments after his monumental All Elite Wrestling debut on Dynamite.
“AEW has also confirmed tonight that it has officially signed Sting to a full-time, multi-year agreement.”
In what has to be one of the greatest moments in wrestling this year, and in AEW’s history, The Icon returned to TNT – the channel where he built and cemented his legacy – for the first time in almost two decades.
AEW’s CEO and GM Tony Khan commented, via the press release:
“The surprise introduction of Sting was a great way to celebrate our biggest episode of Dynamite yet. When AEW launched, I was ecstatic to bring wrestling back to TNT after a very long absence. Sting defeated the legendary Ric Flair in the final wrestling match to be shown on TNT for more than 18 years until the debut of Dynamite in 2019. Now, almost two decades later, it’s such a thrill to welcome Sting to AEW and bring him back home to TNT!”
Tune in to AEW DYNAMITE on TNT next week to see why Sting is joining the most boundless promotion in all of wrestling.
