As seen during the June 28th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, Sting and Darby Allin defeated Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara in a Texas Tornado tag team match. At one point, Guevara was laid out on two tables outside of the ring. Sting, who is 64, put Guevara through one of the tables by jumping off a ladder from inside the ring. The high-risk jump generated discussion on social media with fans expressing concern for Sting.

After the show ended, fans gave Sting a standing ovation. Sting cut a promo and said the following…
“You guys deserve it too. I’m gonna have a bunch of stitches in my lip and tooth that just seems halfway knocked out. It was worth it to do it right here. Thank you for Tony Khan, for allowing me to do this.”
