Sting in 2020

So I’m here drawing Sting and my wife asks me what his deal is. So I explained Sting to her, and it got me thinking…if surfer Sting was never a thing, and he debuted now, wold he get over? He was never the best but he connected with crowds enough that I assume he would. What do you think?
Oh yeah man.  Sting came back in 2015 after basically being away from the business for 14 years (not counting Impact) and people still bought into him as a main event threat to Seth Rollins.  He's always had a natural charisma that you can't fake.
