Yes, you read it right! Not to mention, Sting will be 63-years-old in a couple of weeks. The bump was insanely perfect, given the age of the Stinger. As soon as he landed the jump, the entire arena burst into the chants of “you still got it!!”.

Eventually, Darby Allin capitalized and dragged Matt Hardy back to the ring. There, Hardy tried to deliver a ‘Twist of Fate’, but Allin countered it in ‘Scorpion Deathlock’, which is Sting’s finisher.

In the end, the team of Sting, Allin, and Guevara secured the victory when Allin pinned the former WWE superstar after a coffin drop.

The fans are in awe of Sting

Pulling off a stunt like that, let alone at 62, has left fans in disbelief. Hence, many took to their Twitter, talking about the moment they witnessed the WCW veteran take a leap of faith. Most certainly, his actions today only speak volumes about how much Stinger loves the business.

Notably, Ryan Sating drew similarities between the WWE Hall of Famer and ECW legend, New Jack. The late wrestler, New Jack, was famous for his over-the-top bumps and he used to jump through tables from balconies, just like Sting did.
