The 61-year-old Sting has signed a deal with All Elite Wrestling after he made his surprise debut last night on Dynamite.
A tweet with a graphic saying Sting is “All Elite” was uploaded and Jim Ross said on the broadcast that Sting is now on a full-time, multi-year deal with the promotion.
“The surprise introduction of Sting was a great way to celebrate our biggest episode of Dynamite yet,” said Tony Khan in a press release after the show. “When AEW launched, I was ecstatic to bring wrestling back to TNT after a very long absence. Sting defeated the legendary Ric Flair in the final wrestling match to be shown on TNT for more than 18 years until the debut of Dynamite in 2019. Now, almost two decades later, it’s such a thrill to welcome Sting to AEW and bring him back home to TNT!” the AEW President continued.
Sting will address the AEW fans on next week’s episode of Dynamite.
The WWE Hall of Famer had his WWE contract expire in May of this year and the company stopped selling Sting merchandise two months ago. AEW has already took over the merchandise deal and is selling Sting apparel on their website.
