Eric Bischoff Speaks About The Issues That He Had With Sting's Final Match

Many people believe that Sting required his final run in AEW to be perfect and he deserved a great send-off. It is widely believed that Sting’s run in AEW was good and AEW handled him well.

He never lost a match in AEW, and he started fighting in 2021. Sting was mostly known for his work in WCW, where he won the WCW title multiple times. He worked alongside Eric Bischoff, who was serving as WCW President at that time.

On his podcast, Eric Bischoff spoke about Sting’s final match. He stated that as long as Sting was happy, he was happy. He also stated that he liked seeing Sting’s sons take part in the match. Eric admits that the entire match wasn’t his favorite kind of match and he spoke about what he didn’t like.

"I don't like cardboard gimmick matches; this was no exception. I felt the Darby thing was flat-out stupid," Bischoff said. He was talking about the now infamous spot where Darby Allin threw himself from the top of the ladder into real glass outside of the ring, placed on some chairs.

After landing on the glass, Darby’s back was scratched and cut very badly. He was bleeding very badly. "I think it's scratching whatever weird f**king itch Darby Allin has. The risk involved, just the idea of it, it didn't do anything at all for the match, it didn't do anything at all for Sting." Even though he didn’t like the match, Eric was fine with it, as he liked the way the match ended.

He also stated that match was all about the fan experience which was great in his opinion. "The crowd left happy and that was the most important part. At the end of it all, it doesn't matter what my opinion is, it really only matters what the fans think and I think the fans left happy. It was a home run."
