Tony Khan Wanted Sting To Retire At AEW All In 2024



Sting will wrestle his final match when he teams with Darby Allin to defend the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks in a Tornado Tag Team match at tonight’s AEW Revolution 2024 pay-per-view event in Greensboro, NC.

In a recent interview with Pwinsider, Sting revealed that AEW President Tony Khan wanted him to continue wrestling until All In 2024.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On his career: “It’s funny, because I was the guy who did not want to get into pro wrestling. I didn’t even know what pro wrestling was when I got started. But I ended up being a pro wrestler, and at the beginning, I was an introvert, the last guy that you’d want to get up there and entertain in front of hordes of people. But it blossomed into what it blossomed into. I’ve had a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed the fans and cannot thank them enough. But after all of these years, having walked through the curtain thousands of times, I’m still a nervous wreck when I go out there, and it gets pretty overwhelming to try to perform at a high level at my age, even in a short match, even if it’s a six- or eight-man tag.”

On deciding to retire at AEW Revolution: “Tony (Khan) was actually trying to get me to stay longer, maybe retire at Wembley. But it gets tougher and tougher every time you go out there, and you have all of these young guys who are ready to play—there’s only so far you can push it. It’s kind of sad, of course, but, at some point, you just have to do it. There’s a part of me that’s sad, but there’s another part of me that’s relieved. It’s bittersweet, but I’m looking forward to it.”
