The Icon has returned to Pro Wrestling on TNT! The last time this happened was back in 2001 with WCW. Following another post-match beatdown by Team Taz, the lights went out and Sting made his return to the ring for the first time since February 25th, 2019.
But this time it was with All Elite Wrestling. He stopped at the top of the entrance ramp and brought out his bat, which caused Team Taz to take off from the ring. It was one of the most special moments in wrestling this year. He went on to stare down everyone left in the ring: Arn Anderson, Cody Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes, and Darby Allin. It will be interesting to see how this development affects the storyline. Certainly, everyone will be watching to see what Sting does with AEW.
Now, the major news is that Sting has officially signed a multi-year agreement with the company. Sting looked delighted to be back on a wrestling show and he is finally home.
Now that he is an official member of the roster, what does he have in store? Will he get back into the ring for a match? Will he be a manager? Time will tell, but we know with certainty that Sting will speak on next week’s episode of Dynamite.
