Don’t expect to see Sting retire in a one-on-one match.
Sting has been a professional wrestler since 1985 and continues to wrestle regularly into 2023. But his time in the wrestling will end sooner or later, and when it does fans will want to know when, how, and with whom.
The when and the how still remain a mystery, but Sting has given some insight into the with whom part of his eventual retirement.
In an interview with The Ringer, Sting discussed several subjects, one of which being his final match. Though he hasn’t revealed his final opponent, he has explained that his retirement will be in a tag match with a very specific opponent: Darby Allin.
“Well, I know Darby is going to be a part of it for sure. I won’t have a singles match at this point. Darby will be along with me and I’ll be along with him and we can add more to it as far as I’m concerned. But I have a few people [in mind] and I really don’t want to say now.”
Sting will be in a big retirement tour in 2023, but not his own. Both he and Darby Allin will be involved in one of The Great Muta’s last matches, which takes place on January 22nd.
