AEW Hype Sting's Dynamite In-Ring Debut

The Icon is in action this Wednesday

One of the more unlikely storylines on recent AEW has been the mini pseudo-feud between 2.0, and the icon Sting.

Now, on this Wednesday’s upcoming edition of AEW: Dynamite, Sting will take to the ring for his first ever Dynamite match, wrestling live on TNT for the first time since WCW’s final episode in March 2001, as he and Darby Allin take on 2.0.

Ahead of the match, Sting has been hyping up his return to action, saying in a press release:

“My relationship with TNT goes back more than 25 years, so having the opportunity to wrestle on the network that housed some of my most important moments is pretty surreal. The return of crowds has already been electric enough over the past month and a half, but there’s going to be an extra surge of adrenaline in Houston knowing that we’re live on TNT on Wednesday night.”

AEW President Tony Khan added:

“When we first launched AEW, I was ecstatic to bring professional wrestling back to TNT after such a long absence. So many wrestling fans, myself included, watched Sting defeat the legendary Ric Flair 20 years ago in that last match on TNT, and now it’s such a thrill that Sting will finally return to the ring on Wednesday Night Dynamite to team with Darby Allin against 2.0 in a Texas Tornado Tag Team Match. This historic match on Wednesday in Houston is just another example of AEW’s commitment to bring wrestling fans the great moments that they deserve.”

Sting has wrestled twice for AEW, teaming with Darby Allin for PPV victories over Team Taz at Revolution 2021, and The Men of The Year at Double or Nothing.
