Original Plans For Sting's Entrance At AEW Revolution Revealed

REVEALED: Original plans for Sting's final entrance at AEW Revolution

One of the most legendary careers in pro wrestling history came to an end on Sunday, March 3 as Sting bowed out with a win as he and Darby Allin successfully defended the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks in what many have called the perfect retirement for the Stinger. 

Sting's retirement match featured longtime friends, including Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair, while Sting's own sons Steven and Garrett Borden portrayed Wolfpac Sting and Surfer Sting respectively for Sting's final entrance and during the opening stages of the main event of Revolution. 

There were originally different plans in place for Sting's final entrance, though, Steven Borden revealed to Haley Miller of

"Yeah, so the plan actually until the very end, close to the very end, was for me to just do Crow Sting. So Garrett was going to be Surfer, I was going to be Crow. That was always pretty clear. There was never contention over who was going to do what. It just, everybody kind of knew, 'Yeah, I think it makes most sense for Garrett to do Surfer.' And that's probably partially because I used to have long hair so we all got used to that. Then Darby actually made a point to my dad maybe a week or so before the match going, 'Well, you know, don't you think if Garrett's going to be Surfer, Steven's going to be Crow, and then you're also going to be Crow this is an opportunity to mix it up a little bit?' And that was a good point, so that's where we landed on, 'Let's just try to deliver a few different eras in one.' And obviously, as you said, we had some logistical constraints with the attire but we landed on the red too, just for the contrast. It made us two stand out from each other a little bit more," Borden said.

If Sting will remain involved with All Elite Wrestling following his retirement has yet to be determined, with Sting noting following Revolution that he has no interest in being a manager or backstage agent. Regardless, Sting will be spending plenty of time in the garden, Garrett Borden exclusively revealed to Cultaholic Wrestling.
