On AEW Dynamite: Winter is Coming, one of the most recognizable names in pro-wrestling history made his debut for the company. Sting appeared in a post-match segment marking his first time performing on TNT since the network was home to World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in the 1990s and early 2000s.
As recapped by Wrestling Inc., the legendary wrestler made his appearance on Wednesday night after a tag team match between TNT Champion Darby Allin and Cody and Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobbs. Following a post-match brawl between both teams' respective factions, The Nightmare Family and Team Taz, the lights went out as Sting made his entrance to the ring. It was later announced that the WWE Hall of Famer signed a multi-year contract with AEW and will be cutting a promo on next week's episode of Dynamite.
Following his entrance, Sting pulled out his signature black baseball bat, sending the members of Team Taz out of the ring as he focused his attention on Nightmare Family members Arn Anderson, Dustin Rhodes, and Cody. He then got in Allin's face for several seconds before heading backstage and engaging the crowd with some "Woo!" chants.
