Sting Reveals Sweet Story About The AEW Locker Room AEW

Sting has opened up in a Player’s Tribune article and shared a very adorable and ultimately touching anecdote.

In discussing being backstage now at AEW, Sting writes:

“But for whatever reason, the mentality is so different now. The first few times I was backstage, more than a few guys came up to me and handed me their phones with a big smile on their face. You’d see this little six-or-seven-year-old kid dressed up as Sting for Halloween. Black and white face paint. Trench coat. The dark scowl on their face. Big bag of Halloween candy.

“They’d say, ‘That’s me! The paint wouldn’t come off for three days!’

“But the best one was probably Isiah Kassidy. He showed me this picture from some WCW autograph signing like 20 years ago. He must’ve been about five years old, and he’s standing next to me with this huge smile on his face.

“He said, ‘Man, you’re the reason why I got into wrestling.’

“It kind of leaves you speechless. Somehow, with whatever I was doing, I was able to transmit a little bit of magic through the TV and reach this little kid growing up in Brooklyn. Those are the moments that stay with you forever.”

At age 62, Sting may be elder to the AEW locker room but he certainly continues to keep up with the pace as evidenced by his complete match stealing performance at AEW Revolution where he dove off of an arena balcony onto several tables stacked on top of one another.

In an article that is truly worth the read for yourself, Sting also discusses working with CM Punk and Darby Allin as well as his struggles with addiction and the wild rumor about him after he became sober.
