Though it’s been weeks since AEW Revolution 2024 was hosted in the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in North Carolina, wrestling fans have not been able to get over Sting’s retirement match. While the match was completely awesome right from the start, fans didn’t enjoy how things turned lethal at Revolution. 

While Revolution was Sting’s final appearance in AEW, his last appearance on Dynamite will never be forgotten. During the show, the Icon made his appearance from the rafters, something that he used to do in the late 90s when WCW was at its peak. However, AEW must have done a lot of hard work to get it possible. 

During a recent episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Mike Mansury, executive producer of AEW, revealed that the company had a lot of pressure to give the perfect send-off to Sting. Right from the point the idea was pitched, AEW did everything possible to give the perfect farewell to the Icon. 

“That was something that kind of got everyone perked up, and for Sting himself, it was something he wanted to do for the fans. It was another moment and a memory that he wanted to leave the fans with. We knew that was really what he was feeling; we went all systems go to try and make it happen, working with our partners at the building to ensure safety, the team that we brought in to test it and make sure that we did to the highest safety standards possible, Tony [Khan] talking to Dr. Martha Hart to get the family sign-off on and comfortability with it. Everyone on board knew what this would have meant, not just to Sting the talent but to also the fans.”


AEW clearly was on the top of their game during Sting’s retirement match saga. Since the Icon’s retirement days have begun, the company has been doing everything possible to keep the fans engaged but things haven’t gone their way. Ringside News will keep you updated with this story.
