At AEW Dynamite: Winter is Coming, Sting made his debut for All Elite Wrestling. The WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Famer saved Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin from an assault by Team Tazz. Following that, he stared down both men, along with Cody’s coach Arn Anderson.
Soon after Sting’s arrival, Chris Jericho posted a teaser graphic for a potential match between the two. On a recent episode of The Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T commented on the possible match.
“He can still go out there and do a little something in the ring. How much, it really wouldn’t matter with him and a guy like Jericho. I really think they can go out there with smoke and mirrors and tell a story. Even at the age, you know, Sting is right now…even at the age of Chris Jericho right now, no disrespect guys, I think those guys have got enough knowledge to in their heads to go out there in literally smoke and mirrors, unlike the way that the young guys can go out there and do it today.”
It’s not been revealed whether Sting will actually compete in the ring at AEW. However, Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated has reported that there are plans to have him wrestle at some point. Sting signed a multi-year deal with AEW and will be featured heavily. However, if he does actually compete, it will be rare.
