WWE Ban Hall Of Famer From Sting’s Final AEW Match

Sting Konnan Lex Luger Kevin Nash

Sting is set to bring the curtain down on his iconic career at AEW Revolution but one man known well to The Icon won’t be there to see it.

Sting will end his legendary wrestling career at AEW Revolution in Greensboro, North Carolina on March 3rd. The Icon’s last match will see him team with Darby Allin as they put the AEW Tag Team Championship on the line against The Young Bucks.

Ric Flair debuted in AEW to spend the last few months of his old rival’s career with him and it seems Tony Khan and Sting might have plans to have a few more familiar faces in attendance for his final bout. However, one man whom Sting shared the ring with countless times won’t be among them.

Kevin Nash Not Able To Say Farewell To Sting At AEW Show

Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash revealed Sting had asked him to be there for his final match but due to his commitment to WWE, he couldn’t although he did ask permission only to be met with a telling silence:

He asked me to be a part of it, I just said that … you know, with my positioning with WWE I couldn’t -– I couldn’t even be … If I went in the crowd, it would be … you know?

I think he wanted me to be there because I was just one of the guys who has been there with him the whole run. Yeah, I think he was disappointed. I mean, I was disappointed.

I asked [WWE] –- you know when you ask and there’s that three-second pause? It’s like when you be on the road and you’re like, ‘Hey babe? We’re at Fort Wayne, I’m gonna go to Stewie’s Strip Joint, you got a problem with that?’ Nothing.

Tony Khan has allowed AEW stars to appear on WWE programming in the past for special occasions. Chris Jericho famously appeared on an episode of The Broken Skull Sessions with Stone Cold Steve Austin while several AEW stars were allowed to pay tribute to John Cena on Raw for his 20th anniversary celebrations.
