AEW Dynamite video highlights: Sting debuts, Kenny Omega title win


Sting, a WCW icon, WWE Hall of Famer, and Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Famer, made his long-rumored AEW debut last night. 

After Cody Rhodes & Darby Allin defeated Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs in tag team action on last night's Winter is Coming edition of Dynamite, Starks, Hobbs, and fellow Team Taz member Brian Cage began to take out their frustration on Rhodes, Allin, and Rhodes' manager, Arn Anderson. 

As Hobbs threatened to hit Cody with Cage's FTW title belt, the lights went out. Music played, snow fell, and Sting made his first AEW appearance. 

Sting displayed his trademark baseball bat and made his way to the ring. Team Taz fled, leaving Sting to ominously stare at Anderson, Rhodes, and especially Allin. 

In the main event, Kenny Omega used an assist from Impact Wrestling executive and longtime friend Don Callis to win the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley. 

After Callis made his way to ringside with a microphone, he took a bump from Moxley. With the ref distracted, Omega hit Moxley with the mic and a One Winged Angel to win the title. Omega and Callis ran to a waiting car and promised to address the situation on Tuesday's Impact Wrestling episode on AXS TV. 

In the show's opener, MJF and Orange Cassidy won the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royale. The two will face off next week for the Dynamite Diamond Ring. 

Chris Jericho was victorious over Frankie Kazarian, but his Inner Circle faction showed signs of disharmony. Jericho declared an ultimatum for next week's Dynamite and said the group will either band together or split apart forever.
