Following Cody Rhodes and TNT Champion Darby Allin defeating Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks in a tag team match, a brawl took place that saw Team Taz (Brian Cage, Taz, Starks & Hobbs) beating down Arn Anderson, Cody and Darby. As the beatdown continued, the lights went out in Daily’s Place and coming from the backstage area was WWE Hall Of Famer and former 6-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Sting.

Sting ran off Team Taz and then approached Arn, Cody and Darby and stared each of them down before he exited camera’s view. Following Sting’s appearance, it was announced that he has signed a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling and he’ll be appearing on next week’s Dynamite as well.

Back in May of this year, it was reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet that Sting was no longer under contract to WWE. Sting last appeared on WWE programming in February of 2019 for Ric Flair’s birthday celebration.

Several months ago, WWE stopped selling Sting’s merchandise and fast-forward to present day, the Hall Of Famer is signed to All Elite Wrestling.
