AEW has had many new surprising appearances and signings. Superstars like Brodie Lee, Matt Hardy, Jake Roberts, Lance Archer, FTR, Mike Tyson, Ricky Starks, Matt Sydal, Brian Cage, Matt Cardona, and Miro have bolstered the ranks of the Tony Khan led promotion.

While the company signs young and established talent, they have never shied away from signing some legends. The likes of Jake Roberts, Tazz, and Arn Anderson are proof of that. While every legend that has signed with AEW has come in a manager capacity, it will be interesting to see Sting’s role in the promotion.

Different roles Sting can play in AEW

The obvious guess is that Sting will come to manage an AEW superstar. The company doesn’t let any legend perform in the ring, and they could do the same with Sting.

The second possibility is that Sting will just be coming in for a guest appearance for one or a few shows. He could also come in as the last minutes special guest referee or for a guest segment like Eric Bischoff.

The third and final possibility, and everyone’s favorite, is Sting stepping inside the squared circle once again. A common thought in every mind will be that Sting announced he will retire at his Hall of Fame speech in 2016, in addition to him being 61 years old.

However, ‘never say never’ is a saying that the pro wrestling industry lives on. Two time Hall of Famer and Sting’s biggest rival Ric Flair retired from WWE and wrestled a match in TNA, now Impact Wrestling.

As far as age is concerned, Sting last wrestled five years ago at 56. However, wrestling in the 60s is not impossible. Vince McMahon wrestled at 66 and Ric Flair, at borderline 60.

Sting coming to AEW can be huge for the land of the elite. This will help increase their lead in the viewership race they are already leading from a long time.
