Report: Backstage News On Sting Signing With AEW
Secret talks with Tony Khan and more...
Sting will speak for the first time since signing with All Elite Wrestling on tonight's episode of Dynamite in an exclusive interview with his former WCW colleague Tony Schiavone.
What we can expect from Sting in AEW is yet to be revealed, but The Franchise will reportedly come out of retirement and eventually wrestle in the young promotion.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated recently reported additional details about Sting signing with AEW. He noted Tony Khan worked "tirelessly" to sign The Icon and kept their talks secret. Khan and Sting have been friends for years, according to Barrasso and Stinger's son even had a tryout with the Jacksonville Jaguars back in 2015.
Once The Franchise had signed on the dotted line, Khan revealed all the details to The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega and a handful of other people in AEW. Sting was reportedly "thoroughly impressed" with the compensation, long-term planning and professionalism of the company.
Furthermore, Sting's debut was mapped out by Khan, who was adamant Tony Schiavone make his iconic "It's Stiiinnng!" call when the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion debuted.
