Last night’s AEW Dynamite was one of, if not the, best shows in the companies short history. It was filled with outstanding matches and fantastic moments and at the head of this has to be the shock appearance of Sting at the end of the tag-team battle between Darby Allin, Cody Rhodes, Ricky Starks, and Powerhouse Hobbs.
With the faces emerging victorious, it didn’t take Team Taz long to exact their revenge by attacking Allin and Rhodes, and anyone else unlucky enough to get in their way, but what should’ve been a simple beat-down to end the match turned into a true ‘Oh My God’ moment when The Icon appeared.
As he walked to the ring, faithful bat in hand, it sent chills down the spine and if you didn’t find yourself leaping out of your seat, screaming at the top of your lungs, then we fear that you may have no soul.
News on what future plans they have for The Man Called Sting are very sparse at the moment, but considering he was forced to retire after a botched Buckle Bomb by Seth Rollins, then it would come as a major surprise to see him taking any bumps at all during his run in AEW.
We might only see him in the role of enforcer, coming out to level the playing field whenever the good guys seem outnumbered, but if it’s a choice between minimal action or no action at all, we’ll take Vigilante Sting every day of the week.
