Wrestling legend Sting talked to WWE.COM regarding the injury he suffered at Night of Champions, giving his first public comments since the incident.
Sting said that apart from having a stiff neck and banged up a little bit, he feels good, or better yet, “pretty standard” for a wrestling match like that. He felt tingling and numbness down both his arms and then after taking a bump, the turnbuckle power bomb, it went down his legs too and “they just felt like rubber.” Sting eventually collapsed after getting Irish whipped and instead of just ducking the planned clothesline he just crashed to the mat.
“I had to go down on all fours there for a minute, get my composure. I was a little…I was worried,” he said.
He added that he was out when he got to the hospital and doctors hooked him up to an IV to ease the pain. “They mentioned cervical spinal stenosis, but that’s only part of what I heard. I don’t know if there’s anything else,” Sting said, adding that the doctor told his wife that he’s lucky he walked out of the ring.
Despite the massive scare, Sting is eager to return to the ring under the ring scenario and circumstances but it’s a big bold question mark at this point and he’s going to take the wait and see approach for the time being.
Sting described Rollins as one of the best he’s ever worked with and it was a pleasure and an honor to work with him. “And I think he’s just scratching the surface on what he will do. I’ve never seen somebody as talented,” the former WCW champion said.
