Sting Confirms Tony Khan Asked Him About Doing Cinematic Matches In AEW, Says He Is Interested

Since Sting made his first AEW appearance on Dynamite at Winter is coming, everyone wants to know, "Will Sting wrestle?"

A report from Sports Illustrated on December 8 said AEW has plans for Sting to wrestle but didn't have details on what those plans might be. Sting is listed on the active AEW roster page and not as a coach like the non-wrestlers in the company.

Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Sting confirmed that Tony Khan asked him about doing cinematic matches when discussions were ongoing between the two parties and Sting is interested in such a match.

"I didn't want to end the way it ended. I was pushing to get a cinema-style match with Undertaker. For probably a litany of reasons, it just wasn't going to happen. When Tony called and spoke with me, he said, 'Are you interested in doing cinema-style matches?' I said, 'Yeah, I am.' I'd like to come back and do that and not disappear with my tail between my legs. I don't have to go out on top, I'd like to go out in a positive light," he said.

Sting last wrestled at WWE Night of Champions 2015, challenging Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Sting suffered a neck injury in the bout after taking a bucklebomb.

Following Wednesday's AEW Dynamite, Tony Schiavone was asked about Sting's future in AEW on the post-show and he believed Sting would end up wrestling again.

"He is a member of the talent roster. I think we're going to end up seeing him in a match or two. I don't think you're going to see Sting wrestle on a regular basis on AEW Dynamite, but you will see him wrestle," said Schiavone.

As of now, AEW has not confirmed or announced Sting's in-ring debut for the company.
