During the podcast, Booker T said that the newest member of AEW did not get the opportunity of a proper farewell from WWE.

He had previously foreseen the signing of Sting with AEW after his legends contract expired with WWE.

The six-time World Champion spoke about the age-factor of Sting and whether he will be able to compete inside the squared circle.

Booker said, “He’s 61 and it’s a young man’s game.[That said] How you gonna tell a man that he can’t go out there and do it no more? Or that he ain’t got the juice? It’s like with Mike Tyson’s return recently [albeit in an exhibition match].”

He added, “We don’t know how his body is feeling. Sometimes, people just want to roll the dice and say, ‘I want to do it my way.'”

Booker T compares his WWE stint with Sting’s run in the company

Unlike Booker T’s run, Sting’s WWE career was shortened after he suffered an injury being in a bout against Seth Rollins.

The WWE Hall of Famer explained that he had a great career in WWE but Sting, who had the potential to go big in the company ended up having a brief run and did not last long.

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion said, “When I came into WWE, I had an extensive run. I had a whole other career [after my WCW run]. But when Sting came over, it was brief. It felt like the run ended even before it started.”

He said that Sting could have had a ‘ton of a career in WWE’ if the injury did not happen and that is certainly not the way he wants to hang up his boots.

Booker T said, “And now, lord behold, AEW comes along and he has the chance to do that [go out properly], perhaps with Cody Rhodes or Darby Allin.

Sting is set to speak on the next Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
