Chris Jericho & Sting Address AEW Dynamite Showdown

Following their bat-teasing interaction on AEW Dynamite, wrestling legends Chris Jericho and Sting issued warnings to eachother.

Even though Sting has been one of the most popular wrestlers alive for over 35 years and Chris Jericho has been appearing regularly on wrestling TV shows for nearly 30 years, the two men never interacted in a significant way until this past week.

When Chris Jericho became a household name in WCW (following a stint in ECW) from 1996 to 1999, Sting was in the company too, but Sting was a main event player while Jericho was in the cruiserweight division and TV Title situation while being frustrated about not moving up the card. That led to Jericho going to WWE in August 1999 and spending nearly 20 years there. Meanwhile, Sting spent about a decade in TNA after WCW closed and only arrived in WWE in late 2014 to have a few matches there.

In AEW, Chris Jericho has been there since day one in January 2019 while Sting joined the company in December 2020. Jericho has been one of the most pushed AEW wrestlers during his run in the company as the first AEW World Champion while also leading prominent groups such as the Inner Circle and the Jericho Appreciation Society (JAS).

During his AEW run, Sting has amassed a record of 15-0 in the company while competing only in tag team matches with Darby Allin as his partner in every match.

This past Wednesday on the June 14th edition of AEW Dynamite, Darby Allin interrupted a Sammy Guevara promo to try to talk some sense into Sammy about leaving Jericho’s group. That led to Jericho warning Allin about it while also being rude to Sammy. This brought out Sting, who is Allin’s ally, and that led to a showdown with Jericho and Sting each wielding baseball bats. Neither man hit the other, but Sting did knock Jericho’s bat out of his hand.

On Twitter, the WWE & TNA/IMPACT Hall of Famer Sting offered up these comments about Jericho.

“I regret not having more time with you, Chris. See you soon.”

Chris Jericho, who is a no doubt future WWE Hall of Famer, offered up this tweet in reply. As the heel in the scenario, he was a bit more aggressive than what Sting wrote.

Face to Face for the first time ever. Cool. Now here’s a warning @Sting ….stay outta my s**t. @aew

During the Jericho promo with Guevara, the JAS leader said he wanted to team with Guevara again, but there was no tag team match announced officially. Clearly, AEW is teasing the possibility of a Jericho-Guevara match with Sting-Allin.
