Wrestling legend takes a shot at Sting

Sting's return to the ring was one of the most surprising events of recent years, given that we are talking about an absolute icon of the modern era. The Omaha veteran is best known for his long militancy in WCW, where he fought continuously between 1986 and 2001.

He is also remembered for his TNA and WWE stints between 2014 and 2020. The twelve-time world champion made his All Elite Wrestling debut on December 2, 2020, having signed a multi-year contract with Tony's company. Khan. After several weeks of clashes with Team Taz, a tag team street fight match was announced between Sting and Darby Allin against Cage and Starks for 'Revolution', with the first two winning.

Allin is currently engaged in a feud with MJF, which is why it's unlikely fans will see Sting wrestle around this time. However, he may continue to be involved in helping his partner. Within his now famous podcast, Jim Cornette admitted that he is not entirely convinced about the way AEW is using the character of Sting.

Jim Cornette slams Sting

“I understand that Sting is no longer a kid, but the fans would like to see something more from him. Involving him from time to time does not seem to me the ideal choice. Continuing in this way, I believe that people will get fed up and the hype generated by Sting's return will vanish in an instant.

He can't always do the same thing” - explained Cornette. Jim then revealed why one of the fan's most desired dream matches, namely Sting vs. The Undertaker, was never made. "It is still talked about today because everyone would have liked to attend that meeting, but there are very specific reasons why it was never organized.

First of all, I would like to point out that someone should have lost. Alternatively, we would have found ourselves faced with an epilogue that would not have satisfied everyone. I'm sorry for the people, but they are very good reasons." Booker T is not that far off from his statement.

Sting was a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion while Booker T captured the title five times and was the last WCW Champion before the WWE buyout. It could be argued that Booker T was probably one of the bright spots towards the end of WCW, but bad booking didn't do him any favors. Sting, of course, is synonymous with the WCW brand and has brought that legacy with him into AEW.
