The date of March 3, 2024 is a date that professional wrestling fans will remember forever, because on that day Sting retired at the age of almost 65, leaving an unfillable void in the discipline, but not in the hearts of the fans who loved and supported him for years.

The Icon decided to hang up his boots with one last match in All Elite Wrestling alongside Darby Allin with the two going to clash with the Young Bucks in a Returned Tag Team Match with the AEW World Tag Team Titles at stake.

The match, which took place in the main event of the show, was full of very beautiful spots and moments, starting with the special entrance of Sting who brought with him his two sons who dressed up like him in the 1990 WCW Great American Bash and nWo Wolfpac Sting versions and it seems that one of the two fell so much in love with that evening, that he decided to become a wrestler.

In fact, in a recent interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Darby Allin revealed that Steven Borden slept in a tent in his backyard so he could use his personal ring to train. Allin said that the man wasn’t initially interested in pursuing a career in the sport, but that his participation in Revolution made him want to try, especially since both he and his brother had spots in the match.

Sting has had a very long career

Before the big day, Steven Borden himself had made a social dedication to his father, also reported by us on our pages, which reads: “You were Sting before I was born. I have never known a life where there is no possibility of you coming down from the ceiling, diving off of high objects, and performing the Scorpion Death Drop on people.

But now that the day is almost here, [I can say] I have never had so much admiration and so much respect for you as I do right now. There are too many things I could say - I don't know how to put them all together. For now I will say this.

You did it, Dad. You found a way - through almost four decades, you put it all on the line. You remained on top the entire time. You did it while also teaching me what it means to be a man of character, integrity, and grit. Most importantly, you taught me - and are teaching me now.

Garrett, Gracie, and I have so much more to thank than you can imagine. You know, you remember my answer that day as a kid in Central Park when they asked me who my hero was. The answer is still the same. I still think you're the coolest person walking this earth.

Now it's time for one last ride. I'm not ready for it to end, but I'm ready for you to enjoy the sunset. Until then, I can't wait to see you go do the Sting thing one last time. I love you, Dad. Icon forever."
