Fans have been speculating online that another WWE Hall of Famer could become All Elite.
Pro wrestling legend Sting recently sent a message on Twitter to Lance Archer about how glad he was to see him get a shot that he deserves in AEW.
Sting wrote, “Just glad to see you getting a much deserved shot in @AEWrestling.” Rhodes commented on the tweet by sharing the wide-eyed emoji.

This simple interaction got fans talking about the possibility of seeing Sting in All Elite Wrestling.
This interaction comes after Mattel recently announced Sting would not be included in an upcoming WWE action figure line due to “circumstances beyond their control.” Keep in mind that Mattel makes WWE’s toy figures, which could be another indication that Sting might not be under contract with WWE.
Rhodes also commented on Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins’s podcast Twitter account also mentioned this news, which Rhodes responded with a GIF.

This wouldn’t be the first time that AEW has used a WWE star on television. In fact, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart revealed the AEW World Heavyweight Championship at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view event.
Also, AEW signed WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts to a deal that saw him become the manager of Archer.
Perhaps, Sting is the next wrestler to make the jump. It should be noted that this is pure speculation and there have been no reports that have stated either side is interested in working with each other.
Sting has spinal stenosis. Thus, he’s not medically cleared to wrestle, which he hasn’t done since 2015.
