Sting goes out as a champion

Sting and Allin successfully defended their championships at Revolution, therefore Sting left as a champion. The tag titles were vacated owing to Sting's departure, and a tournament will be held to crown new champions in the future. Sting, who first rose to national prominence in World Championship Wrestling, did not sign with the then-WWF when Vince McMahon purchased WCW. After a stint in TNA, he signed with WWE in 2014, making his first appearance at Survivor Series and winning his debut battle for the organization at WrestleMania 31. His final match for WWE occurred at Night of Champions in 2015, when he suffered a neck injury while competing for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Seth Rollins.
