Tonight At AEW Revolution Darby Allin and Sting were able to score a victory against Team Taz (Brian Cage and Ricky Starks) (with Taz) in a Street Fight.
At Winter Is Coming, Sting made his AEW debut, saving Cody Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes, and AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin from a beatdown by Team Taz (Brian Cage, Ricky Starks, and Powerhouse Hobbs).
Sting continued to make appearances to save Allin from Team Taz, finally getting physically involved to prevent interference from Starks and assist Allin in retaining his championship against Cage at New Year's Smash Night 2.
On the January 20, 2021 episode of Dynamite, the stable's manager, Taz, stated that he wanted to take the fight to the streets, and issued a challenge to Allin and Sting. The next day, it was announced that Allin and Sting would face Team Taz (Cage and Starks) in a Street Fight at Revolution, marking Sting's first match in AEW and his first match in over five years following his retirement in 2016.
