Sting Set For Huge Match In Japan

Sting AEW

AEW star Sting will be part of a huge match in an upcoming historic match in Japan, his first in the country for over twenty-five years.

Sting has rolled back the years since joining AEW in late 2020, competing in tag team bouts primarily with Darby Allin and remaining undefeated in the company at the age of 63.

The Icon found himself in a spot of bother at Rampage Grand Slam in New York City when he and Allin teamed up to face The House of Black. Late on in the match, Buddy Matthews had the veteran in trouble with his hands tied behind his back sat prone on a chair while Matthews threatened to use the ex-WCW star’s trademark baseball against him.

The lights went out and when they came back on the two men were joined in the ring by Japanese icon The Great Muta. Muta looked to initially take advantage of his former rival before turning on Matthews, delivering the dreaded poison mist.

Now it has been announced by Pro Wrestling NOAH that Sting will be part of The Great Muta’s retirement match in early 2023 in Yokohama Arena.

The Stinger’s last bout in Japan happened to come inside the Yokohama Arena back in September 1996. The WWE Hall of Famer teamed up with Lex Luger on that occasion to defeat the current all-AEW team of Lord Steven Regal and Arn Anderson.
