In recent weeks the world of wrestling has been literally shocked by the return, this time in All Elite Wrestling, in the ring of the legendary WWE Hall of Famer and former champion of WCW and TNA, Sting. Since the first appearance, which took place a few weeks ago, the icon is now at full capacity on the screens of the Tony Khan federation but this time its presence at AEW Dynamite was very short.
New details on Sting's AEW future
In the course of the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, noted industry journalist Dave Meltzer spoke about AEW's future goals for Sting. The reality is that they are trying to pair Sting and Darby Allin and the federation's goal is to try to exalt the latter as a high-profile star.
Already in the past, Darby Allin has made comparisons and has been compared to Sting, even before the arrival of The Icon in the federation, but now, gradually, an interesting Angle under construction will be implemented which will concern the two wrestlers.
Here are the specific words of Dave Meltzer: "The whole question is that they will try to bring Sting and Darby Allin to work together. I mean, it was talked about even before Sting came and now they will use the mentality and all the qualities.
by Sting to grow and transform Allin into an even taller star." Since Sting's arrival on Dynamite's TV screens, the usual Wednesday night war with WWE's NXT has begun and apparently, the McMahon competition has now been defeated in a strong and clear way.
In recent weeks, Tony Khan's federation has had a clear dominance and Sting's first speech, for example, in front of the cameras of the number 2 company in America, in fact, scored almost 1 million viewers tuned to TNT on Wednesday evening.
with WWE having instead stopped well before. On that occasion, AEW totaled 995,000 viewers on Wednesday evening while NXT would have settled at 659,000. However, it was the Kenny Omega vs. Rey Fenix announcement for 2 weeks from now on AEW Dynamite that really made the headlines.
It will be a contest between two of the greatest workers in the world, and the fact is that Kenny Omega is on a different level ever since he aligned with Don Callis recently. Even if Fenix comes out on the losing end against Kenny Omega, he's going to go up a rung or two when the match does happen.
