Report: Notes On Street Fight At AEW Revolution (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)
It's Sting's first match in over five years
The street pitting Sting and AEW TNT champion Darby Allin against Brian Cage and Ricky Starks at tonight's AEW Revolution pay-per-view has reportedly been filmed ahead of time.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated reported this detail, writing, "The Team Taz-Darby Allin/Sting street fight was filmed ahead of time and is said to be a massive success.
"The match highlights Sting while ensuring he worked in as safe of an environment as possible; allowed Ricky Starks and Brian Cage to have some star-making moments; and gave Darby Allin - who had a chance to apply his film school background - more chances to be a daredevil."
The match is Sting's first since September 20, 2015, when he wrestled Seth Rollins for the WWE championship at Night of Champions. It was during that match that Sting suffered a cervical injury that necessitated surgery, and was ultimately presumed to be career-ending.
Allin will defend his TNT title this Wednesday night on Dynamite, against the winner of tonight's six-way ladder match. Participants include Cody Rhodes, Lance Archer, Penta El Zero Miedo, Scorpio Sky, Max Caster, and a mystery entrant.
