The decision regarding the main event for AEW Revolution this year has left many fans shocked and puzzled. Despite Sting’s highly anticipated final match taking place at the event, it seems that his bout will not be the show’s closing spectacle at the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina.

AEW Revolution 2024 boasts a lineup packed with marquee matchups, making it a highly anticipated event for wrestling enthusiasts. However, Tony Khan’s decision not to feature Sting’s farewell match as the main event has raised eyebrows among fans.

As of the latest update, it appears that the main event slot will be occupied by a triple threat match between Samoa Joe, Hangman Page, and Swerve Strickland. This information was relayed by Renee Paquette during the AEW Revolution pre-show.

Meanwhile, Sting is scheduled to team up with Darby Allin for one last time to challenge The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Titles. Despite the significance of this match, it seems that it will not be the final bout of the evening.


The unexpected choice to not have Sting’s final match as the main event has left many fans scratching their heads, especially considering the venue’s significance to Sting’s storied career. Tony Khan specifically selected the North Carolina venue due to its connection to Sting, adding to the confusion surrounding this decision.

With speculation abound, fans eagerly await further developments regarding the lineup and structure of AEW Revolution, hoping for clarity on why Sting’s farewell match may not be receiving the spotlight it deserves.
