BREAKING: Sting Makes A Stunning AEW Debut On Dynamite

Published 12/02/2020, 10:15 PM EST


‘The Icon’ Sting was last seen in the wrestling ring five years ago at WWE SummerSlam when he failed to regain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Seth Rollins. It was in this very match that the ‘Icon’ suffered a neck injury which forced him to announce his retirement the next year at the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame.

Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin took on Team Taz’s Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks in a tag team match. Cody and Allin won the match but were attacked by Hobbs and Starks after the match. Team Taz even attacked ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson before Dustin Rhodes came for the save.

Brian Cage came out and made quick work of Dustin Rhodes. Just as Hobbs was about to hit Cody with the FTW Championship, the lights went out and the titantron saw nothing but a crow. Now, that’s self explanatory for a wrestling fan, isn’t it?

As the entrance package played a bit, the ‘Icon’ Sting came out to the save of Allin and the Nightmare Family. The commentators and crowd went nuts. After all, Sting returned to TNT eighteen years after the demise of WCW.

Sting made his way to the ring and looked eye-to-eye with Arn Anderson, one of his old rivals. He then went around the ring, looked at Cody, Dustin and closely looked at Darby Allin before getting out of the ring and going out to the back.

Tony Schiavone announced while on commentary that Tony Khan had signed ‘The Icon’ Sting to a multi-year AEW Contract. Plus, he also announced that the Stinger will speak live next week on Dynamite.

WWE released Sting in May earlier this year. It was still speculated that the ‘Icon’ would make one last return at The Undertaker’s final farewell. Sadly for fans, none of that happened.
