In a momentous evening for All Elite Wrestling (AEW), fans were treated to the long-awaited return of one of the company's most prominent stars, marking an electrifying episode of Dynamite. The action unfolded in San Diego, California, where AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy joined forces with Darby Allin to confront the formidable Gates of Agony.
Following a hard-fought battle, Cassidy and Allin emerged victorious, only to find themselves targeted by the menacing trio known as the Mogul Embassy—comprising Brian Cage, Prince Nana, and Swerve Strickland.
Iconic Sting Rescues Popular Duo!
However, when it seemed the famous duo would face an onslaught, a familiar face made his presence felt, none other than WWE Hall of Famer Sting. Not seen on AEW television since April 12th, Sting made a dramatic entrance, armed with his iconic baseball bat, successfully warding off the threat of the Mogul Embassy.
Sting's return carries additional significance, as he has openly acknowledged that his time in the company is limited. Speculation has arisen that the legendary Icon may retire grandly, captivating a colossal crowd at London's Wembley Stadium in August.
Furthermore, there have been murmurs of a potential retirement tour alongside fellow WCW legend Goldberg, fueling further anticipation among fans. Notably, Sting's comeback aligns intriguingly with the forthcoming Forbidden Door event, scheduled for weeks.
In the inaugural Forbidden Door show 2022, Sting teamed up with Darby Allin and Shingo Takagi, securing an impressive victory over Bullet Club's El Phantasmo and The Young Bucks. As anticipation for this year's Forbidden Door event builds, Sting's involvement adds layer of excitement to an already highly anticipated affair.
Moreover, in a double dose of exciting news, AEW owner Tony Khan dropped a bombshell by announcing the imminent return of CM Punk. Set to make his comeback on Collision's highly anticipated debut edition, Punk's return is poised to elevate the already thriving AEW roster further and amplify the promotion's standing in professional wrestling.
As the AEW landscape evolves, fans eagerly await the unfolding saga, relishing the return of beloved stars and thrilling matchups. With Sting's surprise return and the upcoming arrival of CM Punk, AEW's momentum shows no signs of waning, leaving fans and pundits alike buzzing with anticipation for the future of professional wrestling.
