Joe speaks about Sting’s career. 

Coming up at AEW Revolution in March, Sting will have his final match. He started with All Elite Wrestling in 2020 and will cap off his 38-year career with the company. 

The reigning AEW World Champion Samoa Joe spoke about Sting’s career while doing an interview with WhatCulture Wrestling. He feels Sting is maybe a top-four iconic figure in wrestling. He went on to add that he’d 100 percent give Sting a shot at the AEW World Title. 

100 percent. Would always give Stinger a shot at the World Championship, you know? But when you talk about Sting’s career in a whole, I think there are… iconic. It’s a commonly used term… Really, when you dip into your head and you think the iconic figures in professional wrestling, Sting, I mean, top four? Maybe even higher than that. He is kind of the embodiment of a lot of wrestling fans’ best memories. He’s there, just from the painted face to the splash in the corner to the (Scorpion) Death Drop. I mean, so many memories, great memories in the industry are attributed to him and his work in the ring and to see him wrap up a career that he’s been successful with the entire time, it’s amazing to see a man live a career like that and to make a huge of an impact as he has in the industry, especially through the breath of his career and just, he stayed fresh, he stayed relevant, he stayed out there and you know, it’s an amazing feat. Not many will ever replicate it, probably ever.

The last time Sting and Joe went one-on-one was at TNA Victory Road 2009. Sting is undefeated in AEW and The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) have taken aim at him and Darby Allin on the road to his retirement match.
