Rob Van Dam – ‘Sting Has Had Retirement On His Mind For A While’



On a recent edition of his “1 Of A Kind” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam discussed Sting announcing his plan to retire at AEW Revolution 2024.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On when Sting was inducted into the TNA/Impact Hall of Fame: “The way that I remember, when we did the first Hall of Fame for TNA/Impact inducted Sting, he gave his speech, and he told everybody that he thought he was done, he was retired already. And Dixie Carter’s husband called, ‘Hey man, we’ve got this thing. We really need you.’ And he was like ‘No, I’m done.’ ‘Hey, it’s just PPV. Once a month or something, once a week,’ or whatever they had. ‘I think I’m done.’ ‘But what about if we give you this much money?’ ‘Okay, I can do it for a little bit.’”

On how Sting thought he was retired at one point but ended up sticking around in TNA: “That’s what I remember from the speech that Sting gave when he got inducted into the Hall of Fame. That they kept saying ‘Well, just another six months or another twelve months. We’ll pay you this much.’ He’d say ‘Well, I guess I’ll keep going.’ That was back in 2009, or 2010 I guess. So that’s why I didn’t know if he already retired or not, but I know it’s been on his mind for a while.”
