WWE.com is featuring a lengthy interview with Sting talking about the injury he suffered at Sunday’s Night of Champions PPV and his current health.
On what he was feeling in the ring at Night of Champions:
“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. Long term, well, I’m just going to take care of the short term first and see how the long term might play out.”
Treatment he received at the hospital:
“I was out in the hospital — out like a light. They had a neck brace on me, and they were pumping me with [medication] to get me out of pain. I had to do a CT scan and an MRI. They ended up talking to my wife, and I have some details from my wife, but I still have [further evaluation ahead]. They mentioned cervical spinal stenosis, but that’s only part of what I heard. I don’t know if there’s anything else. The doctor did tell my wife, ‘He’s going to have to get this dealt with. He’s lucky he walked out of there.’ Aside from a stiff neck, I’m a little banged up, but otherwise, I feel good. Pretty standard after wrestling a match like that.”
On working with Seth Rollins:
“Really, I can’t say enough. He poked his head in the ambulance and said, ‘Man, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what happened.’ I said, ‘Seth, don’t worry about it. It’s not your fault.’ And he, for 15 minutes, he said, ‘I just wanted to tell you what an honor it was, what a pleasure. I can’t believe I had a chance to get in the ring with you and work with you. I wasyou for Halloween when I was a kid.’ He was on and on about it, but man, this young guy, he doesn’t have any idea how much I appreciate being able to work with him.”
Sting mentioned he is currently on a wait and see approach about a return to the ring.
