Samoa Joe shared his thoughts on Sting’s legendary career and his relationship with the man ahead of The Icon’s final match at AEW Revolution. The AEW World Champion has worked alongside Sting since their days in TNA, and he spoke on AEW Unrestricted about their relationship and more. You can see some highlights below, courtesy of Fightful:

On his relationship with Sting: “When you talk about Sting and the wonderful relationship I’ve had with him throughout my career. He’s been a nemesis, a friend, a tag team partner. He’s been the man who has won a championship from me. He’s been so many things throughout my life and my career. One of the biggest things is that he’s been a sage voice, and in chaotic times, he’s been somebody that has been able to speak a little calmness into a very bad situation and help a young up-and-coming pro wrestler out.” Of the many things he’s been to me in my career, those are definitely a few examples off the top of my head.”

On Sting’s career: For an illustrious career as he’s had, a quarter of that career I can only wish on to my most favorite person. Sting has definitely left an indelible impression on the industry. So much has been influenced by him, his style, what he’s done, what he’s represented in the ring. To see him finish up his career in AEW, it’s bittersweet, it’s a little sad, but no one deserves a send off of the highest magnitude as the Stinger does,” he said.
