Sting would've loved to have a singles match against Kenny Omega in AEW

Sting feels Omega is not fully appreciated. 

The final match of Sting’s career is taking place at AEW Revolution where alongside Darby Allin, he’ll be defending the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson). 

Speaking about matches that he would’ve liked to have had in AEW, Sting told Pro Wrestling Illustrated that he would have loved a match against Kenny Omega. He thinks Omega is underappreciated by some because he never went to WWE. 

Sting went on to mention Big Bill and Satnam Singh while speaking about big men in wrestling. He said guys Singh’s size have to be utilized immediately because big men unfortunately do not last as long in the business.

A lot of wrestling fans thought for sure that Darby (Allin) was going to turn on me, or that I was going to turn on him! But you know, I would have loved to have had a match against Kenny Omega. Kenny is legitimate world champ material. Obviously, he’s been AEW World Champion, but, to me, sometimes how good he is goes underappreciated because he’s never been with WWE; some people think he doesn’t deserve his accolades. But he is one of the best all-around World Heavyweight Champions I’ve ever seen, one of the best in the wrestling industry. And then there are some of the new guys coming up, the big guys—thinking about my matches with Vader—what a talent a guy like Big Bill is. He’s got the goods. He’s got the fire. Satnam (Singh) is another one. He moves really, really good, but you’ve got to utilize guys like him ASAP because big men don’t last as long, unfortunately. Let’s try to get as much as we can out of him while he’s young.

Sting always overdelivered against big guys. I would have loved a Sting/Brodie Lee feud
