Sting Doesn’t See Retirement Happening At AEW All In, Feels Like ‘Showtime’ Is Just About Over With

The Icon sees himself competing at Wembley Stadium but knows he doesn’t have much longer in the ring.

Sting, who is the age 64, has previously stated that his AEW contract would expire sometime this year, and in a promo recently on AEW Dynamite, the Icon stated that “Showtime” was coming up.

At AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2023, Sting, Darby Allin, and Tetsuya Naito defeated Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, and Minoru Suzuki.

Speaking at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door post-show press conference, Sting was asked about his previous comments and whether he had decided on a date for his last match yet.

“I have not decided on a date, for sure. A lot of people have actually wondered if I was going to retire at Wembley. That would be kind of cool, but I don’t see that happening. I think I’m going to continue on. Tony has been in my ear here and there saying, ‘Steve, you can stay as long as you want.’ I’m not sure how long that will 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, the crowd loved it there and it was not the big stadium, but still a great crowd. I’m looking forward to heading back over there,” Sting said.

Jericho would storm in during the presser to challenge Sting and Allin to a Tornado Tag Team match on AEW Dynamite, where he would compete as The Painmaker, on the June 28 episode of AEW Dynamite. Khan would agree to book the match.
