Bully Ray – ‘Sting Was Properly Utilized In AEW & TNA, Tony Khan Did Great’



On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer discussed Sting’s overall AEW run as well as his upcoming retirement match at AEW Revolution 2024.

Sting will team with Darby Allin to defend the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks in a Tornado Tag Team match this Sunday at AEW Revolution 2024 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Sting’s run in AEW: “I think Sting was utilized properly in TNA; I think Sting was properly utilized in AEW. I think Tony’s done a great job with Sting, featuring him as ‘The Icon,’ the legend, putting him in matches where he could be protected yet featured.”

On speaking to Sting and thanking him; “I spoke to Sting last night. Because I just wanted to tell him thank you. Thank you for allowing me to work with you. Thank you for being kind to me. The last thing I said to Sting was ‘I love you, brother.’ And he said ‘I love you,’ back.”

On Sting’s last match: “And now his dad will be looking down from Heaven, and Sting being a devout Christian, knows his dad is going to be watching on from Heaven — I hope he can give his dad that last match that he would have liked to see.”

On Sting’s match possibly going on last: “If Sting goes on last, I think that’s kind of tipping your hat to ‘We’re going off the air very happy…’ I’m all about heat, but…every once in a while, you’ve got to make the people happy. This is, to me, a tough call. Sting is the biggest star on this given night. It’s his last match. Does ‘The Icon’ Sting’s last match trump the importance of your World Heavyweight Championship match?”

Dreamer on Sting ending his career on a win: “If he retires as the tag team champion, that’s pretty cool…AEW did really, really good with that tournament, with the Continental Classic. And if you wanted to get your tag division where you elevate it, everybody for the tag titles is a cool thing to do…Sting loses his last night, and then you have a nice rah rah? I don’t know. If that team is losing, you’re switching the belts, then I say no, you put the World Title on last.”

On Tony Khan liking feel good moments: “Tony is notorious for feel good moments. When I say notorious, I’m not using that in a bad sense. I’m using that…Tony does feel good very well. Tony likes to make his AEW fanbase happy. So if I’m going on AEW’s history and the way they book stuff, I would say that that’s going to be a very happy, jovial sincere, emotional, moment. And not only are you going to want everybody live in the arena to feel that emotional moment, you’re going to want that to go right through your TV set, right to your people at home.”
