Sting & Darby Allin retain AEW World Tag Team Championships at Revolution

Stinger goes out on top. 

Closing out AEW Revolution was Sting’s final match. Him and Darby Allin defended the AEW World Tag Team Championships in a Tornado Tag against The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson). 

Joining the bout as the special guest timekeeper was Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat. Ric Flair was ringside for the match and seated in the front row were Magnum T.A., Scotty Riggs and Nikita Koloff. For Sting’s entrance, his sons were dressed up as Surfer Sting and Wolfpac Sting and collectively, they all came out to Metallica’s ‘Seek and Destroy’. 

To start off the match, Sting’s sons, Sting and Darby Allin hit Stinger Splashes on Matthew and Nicholas. There was a point during the bout when Allin climbed to the top of a ladder and threw himself onto a pane of glass back-first. Matthew pulled Nicholas out of the way before Allin landed. Allin’s back immediately began to bleed. 

The Young Bucks tried to snatch the ring bell from Steamboat and when he fought back, they took him out. In the ring, Flair went to cover Sting but Matthew and Nicholas superkicked him out of the way. Darby eventually made his way back to the ring after being taped up and to close, Sting submitted Matthew with the Scorpio Deathlock to hold onto the AEW World Tag Titles. Post-match, Sting thanked the crowd in attendance.
