Tony Khan Criticizes WWE For Underutilizing Sting

Views: 55 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir

Sting has always been the most valuable asset to the wrestling world. He is considered one of the most popular and influential wrestlers of the late 20th and early 21st century. Sting was known for his distinctive look, which included face paint and a baseball bat, and his high-energy, athletic in-ring style.

He is a multiple time WCW World Heavyweight Champion,NWA World Heavyweight Champion and TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He is also known for his rivalry with Hulk Hogan and his iconic match at Starrcade 1997. He joined WWE in 2014 and made a few appearances in the ring and events and had a retirement match at WWE Night of Champions 2015.

Sting made his debut in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in December 2020, after a long and successful career in professional wrestling. For the most part, he has been featured heavily on AEW television being paired up with Darby Allin.

While speaking in a new D Magazine feature about Sting’s career by Mike Piellucc, AEW President Tony Khan ripped WWE for underutilizing Sting during his time with the company.

He definitely had a lot more to offer than he’d be asked or allowed to show,” Khan said. “To know that a wrestling company could have somebody like Sting—or really, specifically, Sting himself, because there’s nobody like Sting—under contract, and he would want to work, and they wouldn’t want to use him, it makes no sense to me.

I don’t care what company it is, what time. I don’t care how many people you have under contract. If Sting wants to be active, and you have Sting on your roster, why wouldn’t you utilize him?”

It's also important to note that The former WCW Champion and WWE Hall Of Famer revealed in D Magazine that his contract expires sometime this year and that he plans to make a retirement following his contract expiration.
