Sting is set to step into the ring once again at AEW Revolution and Cody Rhodes can't wait for his opportunity to be opposite of him.
Sting made his AEW debut at Winter is Coming, running off Team Taz as they attacked Cody and the Nightmare Family. On a subsequent episode of Dynamite, Cody shared the ring with Sting, who told him he would "see him around."
Speaking to New York Post, Cody discussed Sting's return and how he hopes to see him around sooner rather than later.
“To me, the cinematic matches, they really don’t have a current definition,” Rhodes said. “I’ve seen the Stadium Stampede. I’ve seen the Boneyard [match]. I’ve seen various different ways to present cinematic. And really cinematic just means with different camera cuts. It can mean a lot of things, but ask me that question again in a few months because I want the opportunity to stand across from the Stinger and I think he knows that. It’s almost kind of itching at me under my skin that if there is somebody I wanted to beat, it’s the face of TNT’s hottest period and run. I’m going to be watching like everyone else at ‘Revolution’ and then the decision will become a little bit more clear. With what happens at ‘Revolution’ and how him and Darby are able to navigate that stream, then ask me in a few months and I’ll have a better answer."
Sting is set to team with Darby Allin against Team Taz members Ricky Starks and Brian Cage at AEW Revolution.
When asked about Sting's current aura, Cody said, "I want people to think he’s just that all the time. That’s who he is. He’s just walking around face painted, the long coat because that’s how I see him. When he walks through the back, the common area right before you get to the go position where my office is, where Tony’s office is, there is the common area and when he walks through there it changes the mood. Every local who might be working ‘Dark’ that night, guy who is chomping away, then when you see him he really brings this great presence. That alone is really invaluable and the fact that he’s on TV and we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg with I think what Sting is capable of.”
Sting will appear on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite where he is set to call out Team Taz after they dragged and kidnapped Darby.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
