As of three weeks ago, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was reportedly planning on taping the Sting & Darby Allin vs. Ricky Starks & Brian Cage match at Revolution in a cinematic manner.
Dave Meltzer has revealed on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that AEW was planning on having the match be cinematic as of a few weeks ago, and noted that this could still be the plan:
“It’s cinematic so there’s actually going to be a lot of weird stuff unless they change it. I can’t say 100% it’s cinematic, but I was told it was cinematic three weeks ago. I haven’t been told differently. I suppose it still is, it could change.”
When the match was first booked, Sting had not yet taken a bump in AEW so some speculated that the match would be cinematic to get around the fact he couldn’t get physical. However, he has since been powerbombed by Brian Cage.
