The greatest in-ring careers in the history of professional wrestling came to its conclusion last night at AEW Revolution, as The Icon Sting took the final bow from the squared circle.

Sting and Darby Allin went on to successfully retain their AEW World Tag Team championships against Matt and Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks at the show following one of the most physically battering and gruesome matches of all time.

While Sting wrestled his last match with their rival competitors, WWE went on to acknowledge Sting’s farewell from the wrestling industry on their own television programming.

On tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW, Michael Cole mentioned Sting’s retirement at Revolution and sent out his wishes for The Vigilante’s final performance inside the squared circle. Cole spoke about it right at the beginning of the match between ‘Dirty’ Dominik Mysterio and the WWE Intercontinental champion GUNTHER.

Sting had a brief run in WWE back in 2014, where he wrestled against the likes of Seth Rollins and Triple H before a major neck injury forced him into his first retirement and he was later inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2016. However, in 2021, he stepped back into the ring, signing with AEW, and went on to wrestle for the next three years before hanging up his boots for good at AEW Revolution last night.
