The wrestling world was stunned at Night of Champions when it appeared that Sting suffered a career-threatening injury. The former WCW and TNA champion is recovering and is finally speaking out about the injury and his future.
[adinserter block=”1″]Even the most casual WWE fans realized something was wrong at Night of Champions when Sting could not stand on his feet following a power bomb into the turnbuckle by Seth Rollins. Yet nobody could have grasped the magnitude of the injury. Less than 24 hours later not only was Sting’s injury confirmed, but his future was in doubt.
Dave Meltzer speculated on a F4WOnline.com podcast that Sting’s career was over. It was a logical conclusion when you factor in Sting’s age and the severity of the injury. But was he too quick to react? The Stinger is finally breaking his silence and he is confirming what Meltzer and others speculated.
“The answer truly is a question mark, and the question mark is as bold as it could ever be at this point,” Sting said.
Sting also talked to WWE.com about the moment things went wrong.
“Bottom line, I had tingling, numbness down both arms, all the way to my fingertips. And then, later in the match, I just fell wrong, whatever it was, and this time [the tingling and numbness] went down both arms and into my legs, and I couldn’t feel my legs too well. They just felt like rubber. I don’t know how to describe it. I had to go down on all fours there for a minute, get my composure. I was a little … I was worried.”
[adinserter block=”2″]While one would think that Sting would be upset with Seth Rollins,that is not the case. Sting lay no blame at the feet of the WWE world champion.
“After 30 years and working with some of the best and some of the greatest, [Rollins] is, I’m telling you, he’s got to be the best I’ve ever worked with,” Sting said. “I mean, this guy has it. And I think he’s just scratching the surface on what he will do. I’ve never seen somebody as talented.”
Wow, that is high praise! Especially considering the guy may have ended his career. Regardless, it is good to see Sting breaking his silence and addressing the rumors. There is plenty more to the interview which can be read at WWE.com.
