One of the biggest, if not the biggest signing in the history of AEW took place on December 2nd, 2020 when arguably one of the biggest legends in the history of pro wrestling “The Icon” Sting signed with the company.
During AEW’s Revolution PPV, “The Icon” Sting teamed up with TNT Champion Darby Allin to take on Team Taz’s Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a Street Fight. Darby Allin and Sting came out of the match with a huge win after Sting hit his scorpion death drop finisher on Starks. Sting, who is 62 years of age, wrestled for the first time since 2015 at AEW’s Revolution PPV, when he lost to WWE Star Seth Rollins at WWE’s Night of Champions. After receiving a big buckle bomb at the hands of Seth Rollins, The Icon suffered a neck injury and was forced into retirement.
When speaking with ESPN’s SportsNation, Allin talked about his and The Icon’s entrances at Revolution as well as the other video packages that were filmed for the match. Darby Allin then revealed that he and Sting were pulled over three times by the cops while filming and explaining to the cops what they were doing.
This is what Darby Allin said:
“Like my entrance, I was filming for the pay-per-view last month with Sting, we were filming that entrance and got pulled over three times by the cops.” “They just saw me skating down the street at 3 in the morning and my face paint, speeding in a truck. They were like, ‘what’s going on here,’ I’m like, ‘it’s for professional wrestling, AEW.’”
