The Icon Sting returned to AEW last night during Rampage which was originally recorded on Wednesday night following the conclusion of Dynamite.
The former WCW champion saved Darby Allin after he was about to get double teamed by Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. Sting’s entrance came just before O’Reilly hit the ring, with the lights going out, and Sting appearing right in front of O’Reilly next to the ring when the house lights came back up.
O’Reilly tried to hit Sting with a chair but Sting hit him in the nuts with a baseball bat. Sting took the chair and gave it to Allin, who wrapped it around Fish’s ankle and then did the Coffin Drop.
Sting has been out of action since the May 18 episode of Dynamite with an injury and was written off TV following an attack by The Undisputed Elite. Sting had to miss the meet & greet sessions at Double or Nothing as he was not cleared to travel and was not part of the pay-per-view at all.
