Sting Finally Wins First Championship In AEW, Attacked After Match

Sting with Darby Allin aew

For the first time in his AEW career, Sting is a champion after winning tag team gold with Darby Allin.

It was in December 2020 when WWE & TNA Hall of Famer Sting made his debut with All Elite Wrestling. To the surprise of many people, Sting was able to compete in his first AEW match in March 2021. The reason that was a surprise is because Sting suffered a serious neck injury in a match with WWE’s Seth Rollins in September 2015 and it wasn’t known if The Stinger would compete again.

Fast forward to the present day and the wrestling legend with face paint is going to retire at March’s AEW Revolution PPV in the same month when he turns 65 years old.

On AEW Dynamite in Phoenix, Sting and tag team partner Darby Allin were given their first championship match as a team as they challenged Ricky Starks & Big Bill for the AEW Tag Team Titles.

During the match’s final moments, Allin sent Bill through a table at ringside, so they were out on the floor for the finish. Sting kicked out of a Spear by Stark late in the match. Moments later, Sting hit a Scorpion Death Drop for the pinfall win on Stark.

After the match, The Young Bucks (Matthew & Nicholas Jackson) attacked Sting & Allin with baseball bats. Sting’s two sons were also attacked by the Bucks. The Young Bucks posed with the AEW Tag Team Titles as well.

That win means that Sting & Allin are 28-0 as a team in AEW since the Stinger has had 28 matches in AEW and all of them have been tags with Allin although some matches have had more partners. Even though they were undefeated as a team, this was the first time Sting & Allin were given a title match.

As for Darby Allin, he is no stranger to championships in AEW since he’s a former two-time TNT Champion.

Sting Has Major Say In Creative Plans For Final Match

At AEW Revolution in Greensboro, NC, Sting has been given a lot of creative control about who he will wrestle. Whether he gets to decide the finish, but it has been reported that Sting chose The Young Bucks brother duo of Matt & Nick Jackson to face Sting & Allin at Revolution.

The Young Bucks have not wrestled in several months, but they recently returned to television. The Young Bucks debuted new gimmicks that force people to call them by their given names Matthew & Nicholas Jackson (instead of Matt & Nick) while also fining people in the company who disrespect their Executive Vice President status in the company.

There is still plenty of time until AEW Revolution takes place on March 3rd, but it is expected that AEW will make Sting’s final match official soon.
