AEW’s Unrestricted Podcast: Sting
He does this; he does that: It’s Sttiiiiiinngg! You’ll discover exactly how he came to be at AEW, and all that went into The Icon’s surprise debut. Sting recounts his conversations with Tony Khan, his first steps backstage at Dynamite, walking through Gorilla on his way to the ring, the snowfall at Daily’s Place and 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 tag teaming with Jim Hellwig (aka Ultimate Warrior) and what Hacksaw Jim Duggan said to him the first time they met!
AEW Snow Entrance
“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.’”
“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.”
