Sting shocked the world when he made his debut in AEW back in December 2020. Since then, he has been featured heavily on AEW television, being paired up with Darby Allin. Sting also thanked FTR for a good reason.

Despite being over 60, Sting certainly has been competing at an unexpectedly high level, and that has certainly impressed fans and pro wrestlers alike.

On September 22, 2021, FTR squared off against Sting & Darby Allin at Dynamite: Grand Slam at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. Sting ended up submitting Harwood with the Scorpion Deathlock.

During ROH’s Death Before Dishonor media scrum, Harwood recalled receiving a three-minute voicemail from Sting after the match. Sting thanked FTR for ensuring he did not embarrass himself during the match.


“I got a call from Sting, but I was out on the beach. I came back up, saw my phone, and listened to a three-minute voice mail from Sting. I still have it saved on my phone. He said, ‘hey, I can’t thank you enough. You guys went out of your way to make sure that I looked as good as possible.’ He said, ‘I was afraid that I would embarrass myself. Then I got on Twitter and read the results and the reviews, and found out people still love me.’ In my mind, I’m like, ‘you’re Sting, of course, we still love you!’ But he had that doubt, and those are the things that I care for.”

Sting and Darby Allin are currently engaged in a feud with The House Of Black on AEW television. We will have to wait and see how their feud will develop in the coming weeks.
