In anticipation of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, where he will team up with Darby Allin to take on The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championship, tributes have poured in for the wrestling icon on social media.

Among those paying homage is Sting’s son, Steven Borden, who took to Instagram on Thursday, February 29, to share a deeply touching post reflecting on his father’s illustrious career.

In his heartfelt message, Steven expressed his profound admiration and respect for Sting, acknowledging the impact his father’s legacy has had on both the wrestling world and his own life. He reminisced about growing up in the shadow of his father’s iconic persona, recounting moments of awe and inspiration as he watched Sting’s fearless performances in the ring.

In closing, Steven affirmed his unwavering belief in his father’s status as a hero and proclaimed his enduring love and admiration. He pledged his support as Sting embarks on his final ride in the ring, expressing a mix of nostalgia, pride, and bittersweet anticipation for what lies ahead.


“You were Sting before I was born. I’ve never known a life where the possibility of you rappelling from the rafters, diving off high objects, and Scorpion death dropping people doesn’t exist. But now that day has nearly come, and I’ve never had more respect and admiration for you than I do today. There’s too many things I could say – I don’t know how to encapsulate it all. For now I’ll just say this. You did it, Dad. You found a way – through nearly four decades, you laid it all on the line. You stayed electric the whole way. You did that while also teaching me what it means to be a man of character, integrity, and grit. More importantly, you showed me – and you’re showing me now. Garrett, Gracie, and I have you to thank for more good than you’ll ever know. know you remember what my answer was that day as a kid in Central Park when I was asked who my hero was. The answer is still the same. I’m still convinced you’re the coolest dude to walk the planet. Now it’s time for one last ride. I’m not ready for it to be over, but I’m ready for you to enjoy the sunset. Until then, I can’t wait to watch you go do Sting things one last time. I love you Dad. Icon Forever.”

As Sting prepares to bid farewell to the squared circle, the wrestling world stands in awe of his remarkable legacy, and Steven’s poignant tribute serves as a touching reminder of the profound impact his father has had, both inside and outside the ring.
