Sting Explains What He Wants Fans To Feel During His Matches

Sting AEW

Sting has commented on why he took so many risks during his matches and said it was for all of the fans.

After nearly 40 years in pro wrestling, the legendary Sting is set to retire at the age of 64 years old. The former NWA/WCW and TNA World Champion has done it all in his career while providing moments that will last forever with wrestling fans.

While there were times in his career when he was booed, for most of his career, the Stinger was one of the most beloved babyfaces in the history of pro wrestling. He was the favorite wrestler of many fans who grew up watching WCW and that love has carried over into AEW, where he has a 28-0 record in all tag team matches.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Sting made it clear that the reason he did some of those crazy spots in matches is because he wanted to give the fans a memory they will never forget.

“In the ’80s and early ’90s, I was doing head-first dives out of the ring. Over the top rope onto the floor, into the chairs, onto the tables, onto human bodies, press slammed by guys like Sid Vicious. You’re like nine feet up in the air when he’s got you up there and dropping you through tables. Sid and I did that every night for weeks.”

“I don’t know how many tables I’ve gone through during my career, even before I started with AEW. So jumping off of balconies, okay, I didn’t really jump off of balconies [laughs] but it’s not like it’s something brand new and foreign to Sting.”

“I want wrestling fans to know that even now, at my age, I’m still going to put it out there and go balls to the wall. I’m hoping that everybody walks away from Revolution going ‘Wow, what an incredible memory. A night that we will not forget.’ That’s all I want.”
