Sting talks his snow entrance, AEW talent roster, more

Sting made an appearance on AEW’s Unrestricted Podcast for a new interview.

The WWE Hall of Famer signed a multi-year deal with AEW where he will be making regular appearances on their weekly television show, Dynamite. Since he’s promotional debut, he’s done just that.

One aspect of his entrance involves snow, which came along with the Winter Is Coming themed episode of Dynamite that featured his debut. He thinks it’s a pretty cool element.

“I’ve made every kind of entrance under the sun. I mean, they’ve done everything except shoot me out of a cannon, but I gotta tell you, snow is a first for me. Winter is coming, and it is so cool. I’ve had more people say, ‘Oh dude! The snow! That is awesome.’”

The roster of AEW is stacked from top to bottom. It’s been reported that there are plans in place to have him wrestle at some point. Until then, Sting has been keeping a close eye on the wrestlers that the promotion has under contract.

“Some of the matches that I have seen are the most incredible, athletic, high-paced—I don’t know how many false finishes. They got the crowd rockin’ and rollin’ on every single match it seems.”

“When I first started, I didn’t want to do and be like the generation before me. I wanted to be different, and I was, and these guys I’m watching do the same thing. They’re different. They’ve changed the psychology, you know, how they tell a story, and they’re good. Very innovative.”

Sting also talked about his conversations with Tony Khan, his first steps backstage at Dynamite, walking through Gorilla on his way to the ring, fans’ reactions to his appearance. He also shares stories about the evolution of his character (from neon surfer Sting to The Crow version), his relationship with Dusty Rhodes and the Rhodes family, his early days teaming with Jim Hellwig (aka Ultimate Warrior), and what Hacksaw Jim Duggan said to him the first time they met.
