Will Sting wrestle again
Retirement is just a temporary word in the world of pro wrestling. Sting, 61, is out of in ring action due to injury concerns but the advancement in medical field has saw some of the miraculous in ring returns of Edge and Daniel Bryan after they were believed to never step foot in the ring after career threatening injury. Sting may put up the greatest comeback ever if he steps foot into the AEW ring as a competitor.
