There’s a comeback. AEW has built up its roster with a mixture of veterans and up and coming stars, which allows them to have quite the mixture of wrestlers and matches. As a result, the fans continue to react strongly to almost anything that they do, meaning that a big moment can get quite the reception. That was the case again this week, as a special return took place.
Sting made his return to AEW television this week ok Rampage, helping Darby Allin after Allin’s match against Bobby Fish. Allin won the match but was attacked by Fish and Kyle O’Reilly until Sting returned and made the save. This let Sting and Allin Pillmanize O’Reilly’s leg in a repeat of the same attack that put Sting on the shelf during the May 25 edition of Dynamite.
Welcome back. Check out the big return to end the show:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes AEW feel special. They know how to time this kind of return to maximize the impact, as Sting has been gone just long enough to miss him but not long enough that it doesn’t matter anymore. Sting vs. O’Reilly should be a heck of a match if that is where they’re going, though Sting having a singles match at this point is almost hard to imagine.
What do you think of the return? What is next for Sting? Let us know in the comments below.
