WWE had a “classy” reaction to Sting’s final match according to one legend.

On March 3rd at Revolution, Sting brought down the curtain on his remarkable in-ring career. The legend first stepped in the ring back in 1985, and within five years had risen to become one of the biggest stars in the industry.

In his final match, The Icon teamed with Darby Allin to defeat the Young Bucks in a match stacked with several insane stunts and bucketloads of emotion.

Ahead of the event, there had been a great deal of speculation about whether WWE legends would be able to attend the show. Kevin Nash said he wouldn’t be going, while Booker T said he would attend if invited.

On the night, both Lex Luger and DDP were there in person, while Magnum T.A., Nikita Koloff, and Scotty Riggs were all shown at ringside.

WWE Had No Issue With Legends Paying Tribute To Sting

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, DDP and Luger reflected on the event, and revealed WWE had no issues with them going on one condition.

Luger: 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.

DDP: Off camera, off camera.

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

During the interview, Luger also said he would love for Sting to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame.
