Samoa Joe Open To Giving Sting A Shot At The AEW World Title

Samoa Joe would be more than happy to give Sting a shot at his AEW World Championship.

With Sting due to call time on his legendary career at AEW Revolution in March, it looks as if the Stinger will be teaming with Darby Allin to go up against the Young Bucks for his final match. However, if Sting should fancy one last crack at a World Championship, Samoa Joe is more than game to make that happen.

Having sat down with Samoa Joe recently as part of the promotional push for the upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game - on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on 2 February - the topic of Sting reared its head.

When asked if he'd be open to giving Sting one final chance to compete for a World Title, the current AEW World Champion was very happy to oblige that request should the WWE Hall of Famer be up for it.


As Joe simply put it:

"100%, I would always give the Stinger a shot at the World Championship."

Samoa Joe would then go on to lavish plentiful praise on Sting, labelling him one of the most iconic figures in the history of the wrestling business, and noting how "it's amazing to see a man live a career like that and make as huge of an impact as he has on the industry".


Of course, Samoa Joe and Sting have a healthy dollop of history together, whether that's as opponents or as teammates. After all, it was Sting who brought an end to Joe's reign as the TNA World Champion back at Bound for Glory 2008, whilst the other side of that coin is that the two were also part of the Main Event Mafia together for a spell.

Given how Sting has yet to have a singles match during his 26 matches so far for AEW, it seems highly unlikely that the 64-year-old veteran will break that formula before he hangs up his boots on 3 March. That said, should he fancy one last chance at the big one before calling it a day, Samoa Joe is clearly happy to accept that challenge.
