One of the most legendary figures in the world of professional wrestling has decided to retire.
Sting, real name Steve Borden, is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. He is best known for his time in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where he was the public face of the company for over a decade.
Sting initially stepped away from the wrestling world in 2015 following a brief stint in WWE. His triumphant return to the ring occurred in 2020 when he joined All Elite Wrestling, where he enjoyed a widely acclaimed run.
Now, Sting has made the decision to retire on his own terms. During the latest episode of AEW Dynamite on Wednesday night, he addressed the fans and announced his intention to permanently step away from in-ring competition, with his final match due to take place at the AEW Revolution 2024 PPV.
Get ready for one last year of The Stinger!
