The match starts with Sting getting a suplex on the stage set up. After that, he got up threw his opponent from the stage set up before doing a crossbody off.
After the initial brushing, once the fight reached the ring, Allin was given the task to do most of the heavy lifting. He was also at the receiving end of some heavy beating at the hands of his opponent. He wasthrown outside the ring to where his family was sitting.
The fans were impatiently awaiting Sting’s arrival in the ring and when he finally got tagged, the crowd went crazy as they cannot get enough of his Stinger Splash. After that, the fight broke down a bit. However, Sting made sure to give an exciting finish to his fans.
Sky tried to get the better of the veteran wrestler and went for the cutter off the ropes. However, Sting countered it with the Scorpion Death Drop and won the match via pinfall. Sting’s first match with AEW was a pre-taped street fight in March. In the fight, Sting and Allin had teamed up to defeat Brian Cage and Ricky Starks at Evolution.
The last time Sting had wrestled in front of the crowd, it was way back in 2015, where he lost to Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
