Tony Khan explains the future of AEW Tag Team titles after Stings’ retirement match

AEW Tag Team titles were recently on the line in the Revolution pay-per-view event. AEW stars Sting and Darby Allin retained their title against ‘The Young Bucks’, Matthew and Nicholas. Sting fought his last match in the March 3 event and now fans are wondering what’s in store for the championship now that ‘The Icon’ will relinquish his title.

AEW president and chief executive officer, Tony Khan, recently explained the future plans for the AEW Tag Team titles after “The Stinger’s” retirement match, which took fans by surprise.

Tony Khan explains how the next AEW Tag Team champions will be chosen

‘The Icon’ Sting and Darby Allin faced off against ‘The Young Bucks’, Matthew and Nicholas, at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view event, where they put their AEW Tag Team titles on the line. After a grueling match, the champs successfully retained their title, as this was Sting’s last match before he left the competitive sport, and many fans attended the event.

Interestingly, Sting did his iconic entrance a while back and has maintained his winning streak record while concluding his daga in AEW. President Tony Khan wanted to keep Sting in the company for a little while longer but was denied the request after ‘The Vigilante’ made it clear that he wanted to retire for good.

Tony Khan has revealed that as Sting and Darby Allin will relinquish their title a new tournament will be held to decide the new champions. Every tag team in AEW will get to participate in the tournament and the last to remain will be crowned as the new AEW Tag Team champions.

Khan said at the media scrum, “We are going to vacate the AEW World Tag Team championship. So going forward, there will be a tournament — I’ll talk more about that, there will be more to reveal, a lot of exciting tournaments, there will be more than one bracket to fill out in March”.

Tony Khan shared that he would love to have Sting in the company even after he retires. He said, “We would all love for Sting to come back and be a part of the show, and he’s always welcomed here. Sting is very, very well off and has earned a lot of money in his career and has taken care of it very well. I would love to have Sting back in AEW anytime, and I know he said he’d love to come back… He knows the door is open, and he’s welcomed in AEW forever. To me, he’s our greatest legend”.

Wrestling fans want AEW to retire AEW Tag Team titles

Since Sting retired and held those AEW Tag Team titles, fans have blatantly admitted that AEW should retire those titles as a memoir for ‘The Icon’. Just like new titles are introduced now and then, some fans are claiming that the Florida-based company should create new Tag Team Titles and keep the old ones without removing Sting’s nameplate.

Although AEW’s President Tony Khan has still yet to respond to the fan’s wishes, it is clear that this year will mark the end of the greatest wrestling generation superstar in recent memories. Sting has been in the industry for 39 years and has been a member of both Total Nonstop Action (TNA) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) during his long career.
