Sting sees a lot of similarities between a current AEW wrestler and a Hall of Famer performer from his past.
The year 2024 will mark the final year of Sting’s legendary pro wrestling career which started way back in 1985. After nearly 40 years in pro wrestling, the 64-year-old Stinger will wrestle for the final time at AEW Revolution on March 5th.
It was one year ago in 2023 when another wrestling legend, the Great Muta, was having his final matches. Sting and his AEW tag team partner Darby Allin were even a part of those final matches as well. Muta was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2023 after having an incredible career in Japan for over 30 years, along with his run in NWA/WCW.
In the main event of AEW Dynamite on January 10th, Sting & Darby Allin defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Powerhouse Hobbs in a Tornado Tag Team Match. Sting got the win for his team when he hit a Scorpion Death Drop off a wall platform on Hobbs that sent them both through a table.
On Twitter/X, Sting reacted to a Takeshita post about how thrilled he was to wrestle the Stinger. That led to Sting mentioning The Great Muta, who is a man that the WWE & TNA Hall of Famer knew well.
“Another Great Muta in the making. He has all the tools, for sure.”

Sting’s Final AEW Match Revealed
At the end of AEW Dynamite in Jacksonville, Sting & Allin were in the ring with Tony Schiavone and Ric Flair when The Young Bucks duo Matt & Nick Jackson appeared on the stage with thin mustaches. That left the announcers to ponder if The Young Bucks would be the team that Sting & Allin would face at Revolution on March 5th.
It was reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it was Sting’s choice to have Allin & himself face The Young Bucks at the Revolution PPV. The match hasn’t been announced officially yet, but that’s the plan.
