Sting’s debut at AEW Dynamite Winter Is Coming was one of the most shocking debuts in pro wrestling history. After this debut, fans had been wondering what The Icon would do in the company.
Many fans have been wanting Sting to get into a program with current TNT Champion Darby Allin as the two have quite a few similarities. Since making his debut, Sting has been teasing a possible partnership with Allin and Cody Rhodes.
Darby Allin was recently interviewed by Forbes. Among various topics of discussion, he revealed what advice Sting gave him during his time in the company.
“The whole time I was sitting in the rafters, I didn’t know I was alluding to anything. There’s nothing as big as having ‘The Ball’ [handed] to me than having someone of Sting’s calibre come in and you’re in charge of helping to write that story of his debut. It doesn’t get any bigger than that. I take that very, very seriously so I was like, ‘It’s business time.’”
“I’ve gotten some advice from [Sting]. He’s seen some of the videos I’ve done, and he’s a big admirer of those. He can be in the game for however long he’s been in the game and constantly keeps people intrigued. So if you could pick his brain on that, that would be the No. 1 thing. Because he’s in a league of his own with that mystery and everything he controls. He controls the audience. When he walked out there and I’m just laying in that ring, and the music starts, I haven’t had a feeling like that in wrestling as long as I’ve been doing it…there’s nothing that topped that. That was like an out of body experience”
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Sting was going to address what plans he had with Darby Allin, before The Icon was interrupted by Team Taz.
We will have to see when AEW will eventually book a storyline with Sting and Darby Allin.
