Sting Not Interested In Working In AEW As A Manager Or Backstage Agent

Sting won't be around in AEW for the sake of it

Sting's almost 40-year career as an in-ring competitor is over following The Icon's retirement match at Revolution on Sunday, March 3. The pay-per-view main event saw Sting and Darby Allin successfully defend the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks, with Sting ending his career on top. 

All Elite Wrestling are keen to keep Sting involved with the promotion in some capacity following his retirement. Don't expect Sting to just be involved for the sake of it, though, as the 64-year-old stated during the post-Revolution media scrum that he has no interest in becoming a manager or a backstage agent. 

"Tony has mentioned me staying on board in some form or fashion. We haven't really worked anything out there yet, but I'm sure we'll have some kind of conversation and I'm saying maybe, we'll see what happens. I have no interest in being a manager or anything like that or an agent. I don't want to do any of that kind of stuff. I'm not sure what I can offer," Sting said.

Following Sting's retirement, the AEW World Tag Team Titles have been vacated. New champions will be crowned in a multi-bracket tournament, although further details will be revealed at some point soon.
