It was a big weekend for professional wrestling fans as the AEW Revolution pay-per-view aired live on Sunday night and the main event was a big one. Sting & Darby Allin defended the AEW Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks in Sting’s final match. Luckily for The Icon he managed to pick up the win and end his AEW run undefeated.

The wrestling world has been talking a lot about Sting’s retirement since the pay-per-view aired for obvious reasons. Michael Cole also congratulated Sting during Raw this week when he said “I wanna send our congratulations out to another great champion. After nearly 40 years, the great Sting has retired from professional wrestling. Thanks for the memories. Congratulations to Sting.”

Over the years WWE has been notorious for not acknowledging other wrestling companies, but it seems that times have changed now that a new regime is in charge.

Originally Sting announced his retirement during his WWE Hall of Fame induction speech in 2016 after wrestling only a few matches for the company. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion went on to debut with AEW in 2020, and he returned to the ring in 2021. Now it seems that Sting has been able to properly end his career on his own terms.
