“His deal with AEW expires sometime this year; he won’t say exactly when. When it ends, so will his time behind the face paint,” states the article.

“So many of the guys retire and then they come back, and I thought, ‘I’m not going to be like all the rest of the guys,’” he says. “Just like I said in the beginning, ‘I’m not going to be in this in 45 years.’ And here I am.”

Sting signed a multi-year deal with AEW in 2020, making his debut at AEW Dynamite Winter is Coming.

He has since returned to the ring — he initially retired after 2015 due to a neck injury — competing in tag team matches alongside Darby Allin.

Sting is set to team with Allin and The Great Muta against Hakushi, AKIRA, and Naomichi Marufuji in Muta’s final match on January 22.

In December, Sting revealed that he had his knee cleaned not too long ago. He last wrestled at AEW Full Gear, teaming with Darby Allin to defeat Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
