Can you blame him? WWE is still the biggest and most powerful wrestling company in the world and it has been for a very long time now. That is likely to be the case for a long time to come, but at the same time, it is not the best place for every wrestler to go. Sometimes it is just not the right fit and that seems to be the case with a legend who recently signed elsewhere.
Back at Survivor Series 2015, Sting made his very long awaited WWE debut, costing the Authority the main event to get rid of the group for….well actually about three weeks. What mattered was that Sting was now part of the WWE after fans had been clamoring for him for so long. Sting made his AEW debut earlier this week, suggesting that things did not go so well in WWE. Now we know a bit more about the whole situation.
According to WrestleTalk, Sting was unhappy with various aspects of his time with WWE, which led to him leaving the company. Sting was promised that he would be a big deal when he came to the company but was used sparingly and lost both of his major pay per view matches. He also wanted to have a cinematic match against Undertaker at some point but was shot down. Sting is hoping to be able to do “something good” with AEW in his last run in wrestling.
It didn’t go all that well. Check out Sting’s time in WWE:
Opinion: I mean, he isn’t all that wrong. There was little reason to have Triple H defeat Sting at WrestleMania 35 and then he didn’t mean much of anything for several months. I can understand him not beating the WWE Champion, but you would think he might be able to pop up more than he did. Sting does not need to be a full time star, but he is a big enough deal to have around more than once every few months like he was most of the time. Maybe the AEW run will go better, but it has to be handled properly or it could turn into a big mess.
