In Tony Khan’s opinion, Sting’s current run in AEW is the greatest of his career.
Sting joined All Elite Wrestling in December 2020. At the age of 64, Sting is 17-0 in his AEW career. Every match that Sting has had in AEW has been a tag team match with Darby Allin as his partner either in 2-on-2 tag team matches or matches with more people involved.
Prior to Sting joining AEW, he was most well-known for a 14-year run in the NWA-WCW that ended in 2001 when WWE bought WCW. Many people consider Sting to be one of the best wrestlers in the history of WCW since he was a top babyface for most of his time there and a seven-time World Champion.
After WCW closed, Sting chose not to go to WWE. Instead, he became a regular in TNA and was a five-time World Champion while there.
Finally, in 2014, Sting joined WWE and only wrestled a couple of matches due to an injury suffered in a 2015 match with Seth Rollins when he took a Buckle Bomb in the turnbuckle.
During an interview on The Chase McCabe Show, AEW’s CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan made the claim that Sting is on his greatest run in pro wrestling.
“When you talk about some of the biggest names in pro wrestling, for me it starts and ends with Sting. He’s one of the all-time legends. He’s one of my all-time favorites.”
“Sting is still a huge part of AEW, and one of the greatest things we accomplished was bringing Sting out of retirement. He is still wrestling to this day. He is undefeated in AEW, in fact, and he’s on the greatest run of his career right now in AEW.”
Considering the win-loss record, it is a great run, but it’s also an owner and a booker of a wrestling promotion saying it. Whether all fans would agree with his opinion is another story.
Sting Will Be In A Unique Match At AEW All In
At AEW All In next Sunday, August 27th at Wembley Stadium in London, England, Sting will be teaming up with Darby Allin yet again for a Coffin Match against the team of Swerve Strickland & AR Fox.
Considering Sting’s win-loss record and a crowd of 80,000+ people in Wembley, it would be a surprise to see the Stinger pick up his first loss in that match.
