WWE legend Sting comes out of retirement as AEW confirm his first match in six years next month

WWE legend Sting is coming out of retirement and will compete in his first match in six years next month.

He will team up with Darby Allin against Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in an AEW tag match on February 27.

The 61-year-old, real name Steve Borden, was forced to call it a day six years ago with a neck injury sustained during his brief period wrestling for WWE.

Since then the Hall of Famer has always maintained he would not climb back into the ring for one more battle – despite speculation he would have a dream match with fellow superstar The Undertaker.

However, viewers of AEW Dynamite were left speechless in December as the veteran surprised everyone with an epic debut ahead of a comeback match.

And now the details of the much anticipated battle have been confirmed.

AEW tweeted: "Here we go!

"It’s 'The Machine' Brian Cage & Ricky Starks of #TeamTaz vs Sting & the TNT Champion Darby Allin in a STREET FIGHT!"

Sing and Allin have been growing closer over the last month and will pair up against the team led by fellow wrestling icon Taz.

Sting was a key player in the Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW back in the late 90s and remains a huge fan favourite to this day.


After Vince McMahon purchased WCW in 2001, Sting refused to sign for his rival due to loyalty to the fallen brand.

After years of persuasion, he finally entered WWE in 2014 and immediately targeted Triple H and The Authority.

The two would later have an epic battle at WrestleMania 31 the following year, which memorably saw both DX and the New World Order square-off.

Sting later fought Seth Rollins for the WWE title at Night of Champions in 2015 but injured his neck during the losing effort, which turned out to be his final ever match.

He last appeared on WWE TV in February 2019 as part of Ric Flair’s 70th birthday celebrations.
