Sting debuts at AEW Winter is Coming, signs multi-year deal


Sting is now All Elite.

The former WCW and WWE star made his AEW debut on Wednesday's Winter Is Coming edition of Dynamite, coming out to the ring as Team Taz was beating down TNT Champion Darby Allin, Cody Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes, and Arn Anderson following a tag team match.

As the beatdown was happening, Daily's Place went black and images of frozen landscapes appeared on the big screens. Sting then emerged, painted up and dressed as the classic "Crow" version of his character, complete with baseball bat and new AEW t-shirt.

He then walked around the ring and stared at Anderson, Cody Rhodes, and Allin before walking to the back as snow fell on the set. This was his first appearance on TNT since the final episode of WCW Monday NItro 18 years ago.

Following the commercial break, Jim Ross announced that Tony Khan signed Sting to a full time, multi-year contract. It was later announced he will speak on next week's Dynamite.
