Tony Khan: CM Punk & Sting Teaming In AEW Is Historic

Sting and Punk will team with Darby Allin on AEW Dynamite Holiday Bash

CM Punk and Sting are two of the biggest wrestling stars of their respective generations, and are set to team together for the first time at AEW’s upcoming Holiday Bash special.

The magnitude of the occasion has not been lost on AEW President Tony Khan, who said the following to Culture State about this historic first teaming:

“Sting doesn’t wrestle every week,” said Khan. “He is a regular part of the roster in AEW, but his matches are very special. This match at the Holiday Bash, Sting Darby Allin and CM Punk vs. MJF and FTR is one of the biggest matches we’ve ever had in AEW and it’s one of the biggest matches for sure we’ve ever had on Dynamite. It’s a huge main event, and it’s a big deal for Sting to team with Darby Allin and CM Punk. First time for Punk to team with either of ‘em. And Punk and Sting in particular teaming is a very historic thing, I think. And like I said, Sting hasn’t wrestled in Greensboro in over 27 years since he wrestled Ric Flair October 6 of 1994. I can’t find any record of Sting wrestling in Greensboro since then, and I’ve looked.”
