In an exclusive interview with Sting, released on the official website of WWE, he confessed to his career threatening injury and remained unsure about him taking the ring again.
The WWE Super Star, Sting, was seriously injured during last Sunday’s “Night of Champions” event. The video released showed frightening glimpses of Sting losing feeling in his leg following his challenge with Seth Rollins in the ring. Rollins apparently threw him into the turnbuckles after which Sting was unable to stand, reported Fox Sports.
Fans wondered if Sting was actually hurt or was it just a part of some gimmick, to which Cleveland asserts that the legend was genuinely injured.
“Bottom line, I had tingling, numbness down both arms, all the way to my fingertips,” Sting said. “And then, later in the match, I just fell wrong, whatever it was, and this time went down both arms and into my legs, and I couldn’t feel my legs too well. They just felt like rubber,” he mentioned in the interview.
The 56-year-old wrestling star exclaimed that Seth Rollins is one of the best wrestlers he has ever worked with. Sting, whose real name is Steve Borden, felt, had nothing more to prove after having spent over three decades in the ring and this could well be his final appearance.
After bravely finishing the match on Sunday, the Medics rushed him to the hospital to get a CT Scan and MRI. Sting didn’t sound too optimistic about his injury and recalled, “They mentioned cervical spinal stenosis, but that’s only part of what I heard”. He further stated, “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’”.
While Fans remained hopeful about him returning to the ring again, the wrestler sounded rather uncertain about his comeback.
