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.
