When the newest episode of AEW Dynamite premiered last night, it was the first TNT appearance for the 61 year-old wrestler since the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro going back to March of 2001. A press release that was sent out following the episode unveiled that Sting is coming out of retirement for the sake of joining AEW. The statement read: “AEW has also confirmed tonight that it has officially signed Sting to a full-time, multi-year agreement,”
For those unfamiliar with Sting, he is a former WWE and WCW star and an inducted member of 2016’s WWE Hall of Fame Class. Upon receiving the induction, Sting announced his retirement and since then, has only made a single appearance on WW RAW back in 2019 for Ric Flair’s 70th birthday.
