Sting has been with AEW for over three years and is currently part of a prominent storyline as he will be retiring this week. Following his impactful appearance on Dynamite this week, Sting finally addressed the crowd after the show went off the air.

As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Sting made his final appearance on the show as he descended from the rafters and saved Darby Allin and Ric Flair from The Young Bucks.

After the show, Sting expressed gratitude to the Huntsville crowd, joined by Darby Allin and Ric Flair. He announced it was not only his last Dynamite but also his final one in Huntsville, with Darby as his partner and Flair by his side.

“I’m not only doing my last Dynamite. I’m doing my last Dynamite in Huntsville. I’m doing my last Dynamite with Darby Allin as my tag team partner. I’m doing my last Dynamite with ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair right next to me. When you say ‘Thank you, Sting,’ thank you. Thank you, Huntsville, Alabama. That’s the second time I’ve actually come out of the ceiling in this building.


Reflecting on the history in the venue, he thanked the fans sincerely, acknowledging the impact of Darby Allin and expressing love for Ric Flair. “Thank you, thank you,” Sting concluded, appreciating the support from the bottom of his heart.

”The first time, I threw the bat to Dallas Page, so there’s some good history right here. I’m glad to be back right here. What can I say after all these years? What can I say? Anything that I would say is just kind of trivial when I really mean thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I could not have done any of this without this tag team partner right here, Darby Allin. I would have never been put on the map if it wasn’t for this man right here, ‘The Nature Boy.’ I love you, Huntsville. Thank you, thank you.”

Sting will have his final match on March 3rd at AEW Revolution 2024 and the WWE Hall of Famer is scheduled to partner with Darby Allin to defend their AEW Tag Team Championships in a tag team tornado match against the Young Bucks. It remains to be seen whether Sting will retire undefeated in the end.
