Now that’s a cameo. There are certain pairings in wrestling history that work so well that people will talk about them years if not decades later. That is the kind of thing that can make for a very fun moment when it is referenced years later, especially if it is done well. Another such moment took place this week, as a pair of rivals from decades ago had a stunning reunion.
This week’s AEW Rampage featured a No DQ match between Sting and Darby Allin against the House of Black. During the match, Sting was in trouble when the Great Muta appeared to save him from Buddy Matthews. Muta took Mathews down with a dragon screw legwhip and sprayed him with mist, allowing Sting to get the win. Later in the night, Pro Wrestling NOAH announced that Sting will be part of Muta’s final match on January 22.
This was awesome. Check out Muta’s surprise appearances:

Opinion: AEW has a tendency to do something like this a little too often to the point of diminishing returns but I would think Great Muta of all people works for something like this. That is a cameo I did not expect to see and well done on putting it together. Throw in Sting getting to be a part of Muta’s final match and it was a great night to be a fan of either of these two.
