EXCLUSIVE: Sting's Surprising Post-Retirement Plans Revealed

Sting... the gardener?

Following a legendary in-ring career, Sting retired from professional wrestling at the Revolution pay-per-view on March 3 as he and Darby Allin successfully defended the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks. The Icon had what many have called the perfect retirement, going out on top with the adulation of every single person inside the Greensboro Coliseum. 

Following Revolution, Sting noted he would have a conversation with Tony Khan about remaining involved in some capacity but he wasn't interested in becoming a manager or backstage agent. Even outside of any possible future AEW commitments, though, Steve Borden plans to spend much of his retirement in the garden, according to his son Garrett.

Garrett exclusively told Cultaholic Wrestling's Tom Campbell: "I know that he will not stop whatever he does. He's going to be doing something. He has not told us specifically what he wants to do from now on but I do know, what I've told a few people, when he's not wrestling I call him a professional gardener. What he's able to do at his house, he's like 'Oh I've got to get these trees, I've got to plant this over here.' He's proud of the gravel he puts on his driveway.

"I made a joke with someone the other day that if he has landscapers there he's out there with them and he's leading the charge. He's dirty by the end of the day and he's always been like that. He just loves his tractor and all of that. So I know that a large part of his time is going to be doing that because ever since I've been a kid he always has ideas of how he wants to change and upgrade and landscape."
