WWE Hall Of Famer Claims Chris Jericho Would Be The Perfect Man To Retire Sting

Sting and Chris Jericho face off at Forbidden Door

At Forbidden Door, Chris Jericho and Sting shared the ring for the first time in their careers.

The event saw Jericho teaming up with Sammy Guevara and Minoru Suzuki to take on Sting, Darby Allin, and Tetsuya Naito. When Jericho and The Icon did face each other, The Ocho was quickly aided by his teammates in beating the legend down.

In the end, the bout came down to the two NJPW competitors as Naito rolled up Suzuki for the victory.

The match left the rivalry between Jericho and Sting unfinished, as The Wizard challenged him again at the post-show media scrum, this time demanding a tornado tag match between him and Guevara against Sting and Allin. The match has been granted and will take place on the June 28th edition of Dynamite.

Could Chris Jericho be the man to retire Sting?

The feud has led many fans to think that Jericho will face Sting in his final match, which is likely to happen sooner rather than later. One man who thinks that would be a great way to go is Booker T.

Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, the six-time World Champion said there was no better man for the task.

“If it was a match to go out on, the guy to actually do it with, you couldn’t find a better guy than Chris Jericho. He knows Chris can go out there and take him to that place that he wants to go and take him to that place to where he’s seen a certain way, especially in his last match. I think if anybody can do that and get that done, it would be Jericho.”

While Booker admits there are younger wrestlers who could get it done, he is adamant that Jericho was the best option.

“I’m sure one of the younger guys on that roster can go out there and get it done just as well, but I think if I had to trust someone to actually really get that job done, me in my final match, that final curtain call, the guy to do it with is Chris.”

“If I had to have one dance partner to finish my career off with, the guy was going to go out there and do everything right for that match, you couldn’t pick a better guy than Chris.

“He never was a guy who, I think still to this day, goes out there and does it for self-gratification or anything like that. Chris has always been the ultimate professional as far as going out there and making those fans feel a certain way about what they’re watching.

“I think Chris would be the perfect guy to do it with Sting if that’s his swan song, his curtain call, and go out there and get it done right.”

The legendary star has not ruled out any opponents for his final bout, but he has shot down rumours that the match will take place at All In when AEW hits London.
