Eric Bischoff Names One Issue With Sting’s Final Match


Eric Bischoff has revealed that Sting’s farewell AEW match was not to his taste.

‘The Icon’ brought down the curtain on a legendary 40-year career at AEW Revolution on 3rd March in front of 16,000 adoring fans at the Greensboro Coliseum.

The pair of Sting and Darby Allin successfully defended their AEW Tag Team Championship against The Young Bucks in a brutal encounter littered with weapons including a glass pane that ultimately led to serious lacerations to Allin’s back.

Reviewing the bout on his Patreon show Strictly Business‘, former WCW President Eric Bischoff revealed that he was not a fan of the risk-taking nature of the contest:

“I don’t like cardboard gimmick matches; this was no exception. I felt the Darby thing was flat-out stupid. I think it’s scratching whatever weird f**king itch Darby Allin has.

The risk involved, just the idea of it, it didn’t do anything at all for the match, it didn’t do anything at all for Sting.”

Sting Praised By Bischoff For Including Sons In Final Bout

Despite his own reservations about the nature of the match, Bischoff was quick to praise the inclusion of Sting’s sons during the show and highlighted that the former WCW Champion and his fans were happy at the end of the night:

“The crowd left happy and that was the most important part.

At the end of it all, it doesn’t matter what my opinion is, it really only matters what the fans think and I think the fans left happy. It was a home run.”
