Former WWE writer Vince Russo spoke about Sting and what he was told after he was injured by Seth Rollins in 2015. Russo revealed that Sting was told he was not going to wrestle again after that injury.
Sting joined WWE in 2014 and had four matches with the company, with the last being against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions in 2015. He suffered a neck injury in that match, which forced him to retire.
Vince Russo was a recent guest on SK Wrrestling's UnSKripted with Dr. Chris Featherstone, where he was asked his opinion about Sting returning to the ring with AEW. The former WWE writer stated that Sting was told not to get in the ring once again after being injured by Seth Rollins.
"If Sting can still make that kind of money at his age, God bless him. I was able to talk to Sting - my last conversation with Sting was after the Seth Rollins incident. And I know for a fact Sting was told to not step in a wrestling ring again. So my whole thing with Sting is two-fold: 1) make as much money as you can, all the power to you. If Tony Khan is willing to pay you, take the money. But 2) you know, if and when the guy gets in the ring, I pray to God he does not get hurt. I do not want to see him get hurt."
Russo was not happy to see Sting dyeing his hair on his second appearance in AEW after showing his grey hair in his first appearance in AEW.
