Sting competes in his final match at AEW Revolution on Sunday, and both Dustin Rhodes and Sting’s son paid tribute to him ahead of the PPV. Sting will team with Darby ALlin to defend the AEW World Tag Team Championships against The Young Bucks at the PPV in what will be his farewell bout. Rhodes and Steven Bordon both posted to social media to pay homage to Sting, as you can see below.

Rhodes wrote:

“Icon, inspiration and friend. Thank you @Sting for an incredible career. I will miss you man. #Stinger”

Meanwhile, Borden wrote on Instagram:

“You were Sting before I was born.

“I’ve never known a life where the possibility of you rappelling from the rafters, diving off high objects, and Scorpion death dropping people doesn’t exist. “But now that day has nearly come, and I’ve never had more respect and admiration for you than I do today.

“There’s too many things I could say – I don’t know how to encapsulate it all. For now I’ll just say this. You did it, Dad. You found a way – through nearly four decades, you laid it all on the line. You stayed electric the whole way.

“You did that while also teaching me what it means to be a man of character, integrity, and grit. More importantly, you showed me – and you’re showing me now. Garrett, Gracie, and I have you to thank for more good than you’ll ever know.

“I know you remember what my answer was that day as a kid in Central Park when I was asked who my hero was. The answer is still the same.

“I’m still convinced you’re the coolest dude to walk the planet. Now it’s time for one last ride. I’m not ready for it to be over, but I’m ready for you to enjoy the sunset. Until then, I can’t wait to watch you go do Sting things one last time. I love you Dad. Icon Forever.”
