Sting Fully On Board With AEW Retirement Plans

Tony Khan hugs Sting on AEW Dynamite

Sting will call time on his legendary career at AEW Revolution and after his potential opponents were revealed, more information has been given on the plans.

Sting revealed that his final match will take place at AEW Revolution as he brings the curtain down on one of the longest wrestling careers in history. Sting first appeared in AEW in December 2020 and during his time in the company he has competed in tag team matches and remains undefeated in those as he formed a formidable alliance with Darby Allin.

With Revolution now only a matter of weeks away, it looks like Sting’s last match could be a tag team affair as well after a surprise return took place on Dynamite.

On the Homecoming edition of Dynamite, Sting and Darby Allin defeated Konosuke Takeshita and Powerhouse Hobbs in a tag team match before Tony Schiavone joined the victors with Sting seemingly ready to reveal who his final opponent would be.

Before Sting could answer, however, The Young Bucks interrupted, staring down both Sting and Darby Allin, indicating they might want the chance to send The Icon off into the sunset.

Sting Fully On Board With The Young Bucks As Final Opponents

Fightful Select has now reported that Sting was keen to continue competing in tag team matches to end his career rather than having a singles match. From a few weeks ago, the active plan in AEW was for Sting and Darby Allin to face The Young Bucks at Revolution and The Icon is said to be fully on board with that plan.

Getting Sting’s retirement right is said to be very important to Tony Khan and whatever way Sting has wanted to go as he winds down his career, AEW has accommodated it.
