AEW had a big surprise for fans watching Winter Is Coming, because Sting showed up. Very few people knew about this beforehand.
According to Fightful Select, nobody they spoke to backstage at AEW Dynamite knew that Sting was in the building. They had no idea he was even coming to the company.
It was reported that “the initial reaction we got from talent has been shock and excitement.” They didn’t hear about it until right before the segment took place. Sting wasn’t around Daily’s Place this afternoon before the show either.
