WWE Hall of Famer Sting does not have many matches left in his illustrious career and with AEW heading to its biggest-ever show in London, England, many have wondered if showtime will be over at All In.
Over 66,000 tickets have already been sold for All In without a single match being announced. There has been intense speculation surrounding Sting since the show was confirmed with many suggesting that The Icon would want to draw his career to a close in front of as big a crowd as possible.
Speaking at the post-Forbidden Door media scrum, Sting noted that while his time in the ring is drawing to an end, it won’t necessarily take place in front of over 60,000 fans in Wembley Stadium:
“I have not decided on a date for sure. A lot of people have actually wondered if I was gonna retire in Wembley. That would be kinda cool, but I don’t see that happening. I think I’m gonna continue on. Tony’s kinda been in my ear a little bit here and there, saying, ‘Steve, you can stay as long as you want!’ So I’m not sure how long that’ll be. But like I said a few months ago, ‘Showtime is just about over with,’ and it truly is.
“But I’m looking forward to going back to London. Last time I was there… I was Joker Sting and the crowd loved it. It was not the big arena, the big stadium. It was just the arena, but still, great crowd. And I’m looking forward to heading back over there.”
While Sting was speaking at the media scrum alongside Tony Khan and Darby Allin, Chris Jericho took the opportunity to lay down a challenge to both men before drawing blood from one of the members of the assembled wrestling media.
