WWE Hall Of Famer Reveals Company Won’t Allow Him To Attend Sting’s Retirement Match

Sting’s legendary in-ring wrestling career is set to end at AEW’s Revolution pay-per-view when he teams with Darby Allin against The Young Bucks. The event is being treated as a big deal, with AEW purposely booking the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina, for the occasion, which is the same venue where Sting faced Ric Flair at Clash of the Champions almost 36 years ago. And while it’s known Flair will be there to support his friend and colleague, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has now revealed on his podcast that Sting also wanted him to attend. Yet, despite Nash wishing to be there, WWE turned the request down.

“He asked me to be a part of it, and I just said that because of my positioning with the company, with WWE, I couldn’t even be there in the crowd. I think he wanted me to be there because one of the guys that’s been with him the whole run, right? Yeah. I think he was disappointed. I mean, I was disappointed, but I knew. I asked. When you ask, and there’s that three, four-second pause.”

Kevin Nash

Sting’s relationship with Nash goes all the way back to the 90s when Nash was called Oz and later Vinnie Vegas in WCW. And while the duo were famously on-screen rivals during the original NWO angle, they also aligned in the NWO Wolfpac stable and again in TNA as part of the Main Event Mafia. Therefore, it is disappointing Nash won’t be able to be there in person to support his long-term friend. However, considering Nash is signed to WWE via an exclusive Legends contract, it is understandable why his appearance on a rival promotions television would be an issue.
