AEW: Samoa Joe on Being 100% Interested in AEW World Title Match with Sting, RUSH Injury Update, New Match for Wed. Dynamite Show

Samoa Joe Comments on Being 100% Interested in Giving Sting a Shot at His AEW World Title

A recent episode of the WhatCulture Wrestling podcast featured Samoa Joe as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Joe’s interest in a potential AEW World Championship match against Sting before Sting’s retirement from wrestling.

“100 percent. We would always give Sting a shot at the championship. When you talk about Sting’s career on the whole. Icon, it’s a commonly used term, when you dip into your head and think about the iconic figures in pro wrestling, Sting is top four, maybe even higher. He’s the embodiment of a lot of wrestling fans best memories. He was there from the painted face to the splash in the corner to the death drop. So many great memories are attributed to him. To see him wrap up a career that has been successful, it’s amazing to see a man live a career like that and to make a huge impact on the industry. He stayed fresh, he stayed relevant, he stayed out there. It’s an amazing feat that not many will ever replicate, probably ever.”
