Sting surprised a lot of fans when the 61-year-old Hall of Famer took a powerbomb from Brian Cage on AEW Dynamite. The thought was that Sting would only get physical in a cinematic sense, but that’s not the case.
AEW Revolution will see Sting and Darby Allin team up to take on Brian Cage and Ricky Starks. That street fight has already gotten physical in the build for the match.
While speaking to PW Insider, Tony Khan revealed that Sting is 100% cleared to compete in the ring for AEW. This didn’t seem to come with any restrictions.
“He’s been cleared, he’s been fully cleared. He’s been training with Darby and sparring partners and he’s been fully cleared to wrestle. In his training, one thing he’s done to get ready with his sparring partners is a powerbomb. In terms of getting ready for this, I was more than fine with it and in fact called it.”
“At that point when he’s taking them in training, it’s time for the live crowd. So he was completely cleared to do it and wanted to do it and he wanted to get out there and wrestle. Sting is going to be on Dynamite tomorrow[tonight] looking for payback and all bets are off now. Sting’s cleared to wrestle and he wants to wrestle and this is how he wanted to end his wrestling career in-ring was in AEW and come in and go out the way he always wanted to go out with great matches.”
Sting can still take a bump and keep on going. We’ll have to see how much punishment they put on the Stinger, but he can obviously take a powerbomb after last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
