AEW Revolution was indeed a historic event, featuring high-intensity wrestling matches that captivated fans around the world. However, its standout moment will always be the retirement of the legendary Sting. However, this event also had a huge fumble, which left a bad taste in the mouth.

Sting had a stellar tag team match with Darby Allin against The Young Bucks. However, after the match, The Icon was scheduled to give a retirement speech. Due to poor time management by AEW management, the end of the show didn’t have enough TV time for the retirement speech. As a result, only people in the venue got the chance to see it, leaving fans watching at home disappointed.

The main reason for the time shortage was the extra-long match card, exacerbated by the inclusion of a seemingly pointless All-Star Scramble match. This led to a rushed conclusion and the unfortunate omission of Sting’s retirement speech for television viewers.

Sting’s retirement speech at AEW Revolution 2024 was heartfelt and emotional. He thanked the fans for their support throughout his career, acknowledging their role in making his journey so special. The Icon also thanked Darby Allin, calling him the best tag team partner he’s ever had and praising his talent and dedication to the sport. Additionally, Sting thanked Tony Khan, the owner of AEW, for providing him with the opportunity to continue wrestling and for creating a company that values its performers and their contributions to the industry.

Fans express their anger and frustration over missing the Retirement speech

Fans were understandably disappointed after missing Sting’s retirement speech. For many, Sting is more than just a wrestler; he is an icon, a franchise. Having followed his career for almost 40 years, fans have developed a deep connection with him, making his retirement a significant moment in wrestling history. Many fans viewed missing out on his farewell speech as a disservice to his legacy and felt unsatisfied with the event’s conclusion.

Fans took to social media to express their frustration over missing Sting’s retirement speech. Some fans went as far as to say that Tony Khan would have to pay for this oversight. Others placed blame on Chris Jericho, who was in the All-Star Scramble match, suggesting that his inclusion contributed to the time management issues.

However, some fans took a more pragmatic approach, suggesting that those who missed the speech could watch it on social media platforms like YouTube. Some fans also suggested that AEW should have reserved an extra 30 minutes in advance to avoid such situations in the future. This incident led to comparisons with WWE, with fans noting that WWE tends to handle such moments better and suggesting that AEW should learn from their approach to event planning.
