Tony Khan: Sting Is Always Welcome In AEW, We Would Love For Him To Come Back And Be Part Of The Show

Tony Khan hopes that Sting will be affiliated with AEW for years to come.

At AEW Revolution, Sting will say goodbye to professional wrestling, as he'll compete in his final match, teaming with Darby Allin to take on The Young Bucks. This will bring Sting's three year run with AEW to an end, but Tony Khan still hopes that Sting will remain with the company forever in spirit.

On the AEW Revolution media call, Joel Torres From Contralona asked Khan about Sting's upcoming retirement, and in response, Khan noted that he'd love for Sting to come back and be a part of the show in some other way, stating that he'll always be welcome in AEW.

"Sting, I hope will remain with us in spirit forever. I believe he’ll be affiliated with us. Last night, he joked he was going to come back and throw on the headset. I would love that. I think we would all love for Sting to come back and be a part of the show. Sting is always welcome here. One thing about Sting, when he did this comeback, especially the hardcore fans of wrestling who know all the inner workings and details of the industry, may appreciate this. When he came back in 2020, he did not need the money. Sting is very well off and has earned a lot of money in his career and has taken care of it very well. He’s a great person and has made great investments. He does this because he loves it. He loves the fans and he wanted to have a great run in wrestling and for these past three years, that’s exactly what we’ve done. For me, I would love to have Sting back in AEW at any time, and I know he said he would like to comeback. We won’t hold him or force him to come back at any point. It’s not like we’ve locked in dates where he’s definitely going to be there, or contracted him. It’s going to be really nice after three years of pushing himself and have the longevity in his career that all wrestlers can aspire to and dream of, now is a great time for Sting to take time for himself and his family after this. Whatever the result is on Sunday, Sting can take pride that he’s had the most incredible final run that I can remember. We’re excited about the final match, and after that, we’ll see how Sting feels and I’m going to leave that to him. He knows the door is open and he’s welcome at AEW forever and we definitely want Sting representing AEW for as long as there is an AEW because to me, he’s our greatest legend and has been part of some of our greatest memories in the short history of AEW and in my lifetime, part of some of the greatest memories in all of pro wrestling. That’s why he deserves this send off so much that he’s getting."
