Sting has just a few days left to bask in the glory of his illustrious in-ring career that spanned nearly four decades. With his days as an active competitor coming to an end, The Icon spoke about the last descend he made from the skies to the ring on AEW.

The Stinger recreated his iconic WCW entrance on this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, descending down from the rafters, straight into the ring with his trusted baseball, and being ready to strike down his opponents.

He came down in classic Sting style to fend off the attack of his final opponents, The Young Bucks just a week before he and Darby Allin defend their AEW tag team titles against the company’s notorious EVPs.

In a recent interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN, The Franchise of WCW spoke about the mindset of being slightly scared while descending from the arena rafters for the final time in his illustrious career.

“You climb and step over that rail, and it’s like, ‘It’s time to let go now. I used to say my sphincter muscle gets very tight in those moments. And it does. It can be scary. I had one little pang when I was up there. It was like a 30-second pang when I realized I’m getting ready to do this here again. We’re having this casual conversation. ‘All right, you ready to go?’ I’m ready. Let’s go.”

Sting is set to retire at AEW Revolution this Sunday with the fans in Greensboro, Coliseum ready to witness one of the most storied careers in professional wrestling coming to its conclusion in a way The Man known as Sting had wanted.
