Sting retirement match at AEW Revolution on March, 3rd 2024 is a historic night.

Sting’s (Steve Borden) career eclipses many in the professional wrestling industry and his run in AEW ended on a perfect 28-0 streak.

Tony Khan announced that Sting and Darby Allin will vacate the AEW Tag-Team titles and a tournament will decide the new champions.

Sting (Steve Borden) started his career in 1985 as Flash in the independent promotion All-California Championship Wrestling, where he was in a tag team with Jim “Justice” Hellwig (who would later become famously known as The Ultimate Warrior) as members of the Power Team USA stable, before he and Hellwig joined the CWA as the Freedom Fighters. In 1986, they joined the UWF as the Blade Runners, with Borden changing his ring name to Sting. His association with JCP and its successor WCW began in 1987, which saw him win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship for the first time in 1990.

As Sting now 64 years old heads into the retirement chapter of his career there are plans for him to still be involved with AEW.

The plan is for Sting to eventually return in a backstage Producer, Coach or Mentor role. This will be a great opportunity for Sting to help younger talent develop while also still being involved with pro wrestling.

After a 40-year career sometimes it’s hard to step away from the business you love. A backstage role is a great way to transition into the next chapter of a pro wrestlers career.
