A memorable night for Sting as curtain comes down on Hall of Fame career

While the pay-per-view feed cut off during Sting’s post-match speech last night, the celebration continued after the show went off the air.

Both his sons – Steven and Garrett – rejoined their father in the ring for his final farewell. Before the match started, Garrett came out in surfer Sting attire and makeup while Steven wore the Wolfpac Sting outfit and makeup to accompany their dad in the ring.

AEW President Tony Khan was invited to the ring and Tony Schiavone did his last “It’s Stiiiiiiing” call on the microphone before the AEW locker room emptied to salute The Icon.

It was a memorable and emotional night for The Stinger who wrapped up his almost 40-year career on top with a win over The Young Bucks with his crazy tag team partner Darby Allin.

The two went 29-0 as a tag team in AEW, with Sting never once pinned or submitted during his whole AEW stint.

Ric Flair and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat were involved in the match as well while Magnum TA, Scotty Riggs, and Nikita Koloff were all at ringside. Diamond Dallas Page and Lex Luger were also there but not shown on camera.

The full post-match speech can be seen below.
