‘The Total Package’ has revealed that WWE allowed him to attend Sting’s last match in AEW under one condition.

Luger was in the building as Sting’s glorious four-decade professional wrestling career wound down. He and Darby Allin were victorious in a bout that saw them face off with AEW EVPs, Matthew and Nicholas Jackson.

Appearing recently on Busted Open Radio alongside Diamond Dallas Page, Luger spoke further about Sting’s retirement, the feeling in the building, and WWE permitting them to attend the event so long as they stayed off camera.

“Incredible atmosphere (for Sting’s final match). When I first heard, I asked him a few days before, ‘Are you guys going on last?’ I guess they debated that a little bit, and sometimes those pay-per-views, they do the warm-up show and sometimes the crowd can — it was hot in there. My God, it was hot in there. But you can lose the crowd a little bit but that crowd was phenomenal. They stayed hot. They were lit for the match which I was so excited. They got us out there so we could kind of soak in the atmosphere.

-Lex Luger

DDP would quickly interject, noting that the pair stayed off camera on the night.

WWE is classy. They said we can go and everything. Just don’t be on camera. It’ll be a part of the match. 

With WrestleMania 40 rapidly approaching, so too is this year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, and many fans will likely be hoping to see Luger finally inducted as part of the Class of 2024.

When asked who he would like to induct him into the WWE HOF if the opportunity came up, the 65-year-old’s first choice was Sting, noting that he had the opportunity to induct ‘The Icon’ into TNA’s Hall of Fame.

Oh wow. Probably Stinger would be the first person that pops up if he could do it (induct me into WWE’s Hall of Fame). I did (induct Sting into TNA’s Hall of Fame). I did, yeah.

-Lex Luger

Sting’s in-ring career came to a close with Luger in attendance as Sting and Darby Allin defeated Nicholas and Matthew Jackson to successfully defend their now-vacated AEW Tag Team Championships.

WWE’s Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on April 5. Bull Nakano and Paul Heyman have already been announced to be entering this year’s class of inductees, with more to follow.
