Sting Match Added To AEW Collision

December 2nd - On This Day In Wrestling History Sting in AEW

Sting will be back in action on AEW Collision.

Fresh off the back of competing at Worlds End on December 30th, Sting will lace up his boots once again on the January 6th episode of Collision.

Tony Khan announced on social media that the star will team with regular tag team partner Darby Allin to take on JD Drake and Anthony Henry, better known as The Workhorsemen.

Sting and Allin have also been booked to face Konosuke Takeshita and Powerhouse Hobbs on the January 10th edition of Dynamite.

The pair have found themselves at odds with the Don Callis Family in recent weeks and teamed with Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara to get the better of Takeshita, Hobbs, Big Bill, and Ricky Starks at Worlds End.

Elsewhere on Collision, Eddie Kingston will defend his Continental Championship against Trent Beretta and FTR will meet the House of Black in tag team action.

It’s also been confirmed that Adam Copeland will be on the show.

When Is Sting Retiring?

Sting will call time on his career at AEW Revolution on March 3rd, with the show being held at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Icon began his career back in 1985 even though he’d previously shown little interest in professional wrestling. After starting out with the Continental Wrestling Association alongside The Ultimate Warrior, the star headed to the UWF and then Jim Crockett Promotions, remaining with the company when it became WCW.

When WCW closed in 2001, Sting eventually continued his career in TNA before making a stop in WWE in 2014. During a match against Seth Rollins a year later, the star suffered a serious neck injury that was believed to have ended his career. However, he got back in the ring after joining AEW in 2020.
