WWE Star Has No Interest In Having Sting’s Career

One WWE star won’t be following in Sting’s footsteps.

The legendary Sting ended his career on a high at AEW Revolution when he and Darby Allin successfully defended their Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks. Despite being 64 years-old The Icon didn’t hold back and went crashing through tables and even a pane of glass. In the end, he trapped Matt Jackson in the Scorpion Deathlock, forcing the EVP to submit to a huge ovation from the crowd.

One man who knows Sting well is AJ Styles. The WWE star worked with the legend regularly when both men were in TNA, both as allies and enemies. During a recent interview on the Battleground podcast, Styles praised Sting for being a nice guy.

“They say never meet your heroes. I got to meet one of mine. Obviously, it was Sting. He is such a great guy. He’s a nice guy and has always been a nice guy. It just made my day to meet somebody like that who I admired so much and enjoyed watching.”

When it comes to the WWE Hall of Famer’s retirement, Styles said he earned it, but admitted he wouldn’t be following him in having such a lengthy in-ring career.

“So he has definitely earned his time in pro wrestling. He went a lot longer than I’m going to. It’s awesome that he gets to end on his terms and not someone else’s. When you go out on an injury, that’s not the way you want to go out. So for him to end it when he wants to end it, that’s awesome.”

AJ Styles Claims WWE Is Different Without Vince McMahon

During the same interview, AJ Styles explained how WWE has changed with Vince McMahon gone. The star believes more wrestlers should give the company a chance as many of the reasons for them not signing with the company have left with McMahon. Styles also wants to see an end to stars being released when many might just need a bit more time in NXT, something he thinks Triple H has already made steps towards.
