On a recent edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker T spoke about Sting’s retirement and the run the Icon has been on in AEW. He said,
“I said it man, Sting, he’s having a hell of a swan song. I must say that it literally is (a swan song) because he jumped off something last night… swan song, you know what I mean?
“I gotta give him credit, I gotta give him a lot of credit for going out the way he’s going out after the doctor said he’ll never do this again. I don’t know how he’s going to be feeling after this run is over with. But, definitely, I must say this is like a high power (thing). God has definitely been on his side in this last run. I mean they always talk about the power of prayer, and I must say, in this situation right here that’s the only thing I could attribute it to.”
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Sting and Darby Allin won the AEW World Tag Team Titles, marking Sting’s first title reign since 2011.
The Icon will wrestle his final match at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view next month in Greensboro, NC.
