AEW star Sting has rejected rumors that he will retire at Wembley Stadium, after many fans thought his final match would be at All In.
The WCW legend has wrestled sporadically for AEW since debuting in 2020, teaming with Darby Allin in a number of incredible matches.
The two men remain defeated as a team, although Sting has made it clear that his career is coming to an end sooner, rather than later.
This led many fans to speculate that his last match ever could take place at Wembley Stadium. AEW are bringing their biggest stars to London for All In in August, with Sting expected to be a part of that.
The show has already tripled their previous highest attendance, with over 65,000 tickets already being sold for All In.
While it would be the perfect place for Sting to hang up his boots once and for all, the 64-year-old has denied having plans to retire following a match at Wembley Stadium.
Speaking alongside Tony Khan at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door Post-Show Media Scrum, Sting revealed he hasn’t decided on the date of his last match, and while Wembley would be a cool place to go out, he doesn’t see that as the venue for his final match.
“I have not decided on a date for sure. A lot of people have actually wondered if I was gonna retire in Wembley. That would be kinda’ cool, but I don’t see that happening. I think I’m gonna continue on. Tony’s kinda’ been in my ear a little bit here and there, saying, ‘Steve, you can stay as long as you want!’ So I’m not sure how long that’ll be. But like I said a few months ago, ‘Showtime is just about over with,’ and it truly is.”
Sting also revealed that he previously had a great time wrestling in London for TNA.
He reminisced about the last time he wrestled in London (at Wembley Arena for TNA), when he played his “Joker Sting” gimmick, but to the fans delight.
“But I’m looking forward to going back to London. Last time I was there… I was Joker Sting and the crowd loved it. It was not the big arena, the big stadium. It was just the arena, but still, great great crowd. And I’m looking forward to heading back over there.”
