There was a story that broke after last night’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match versus Seth Rollins, that the “Vigilante” Sting suffered an injury. Many fans who watched last night’s WWE Night of Champions show will recall Seth Rollins hitting a Turnbuckle Powerbomb on Sting as Sting then struggled to the next of the four corners. A doctor entered the ring, checking on Sting, and Seth Rollins played it off with his heel character.
A statement was released on Sting’s Facebook page today:
“As many of you may already know, Sting is undergoing treatment for the injuries he sustained in last night’s match with Seth Rollins. Doctors will continue to evaluate his condition, but he is a man of remarkable health and resiliency, especially at his age and with all he’s endured throughout his stellar career. Therefore, we are optimistic he will have a speedy recovery and return to full health soon. Sting has kept his body in excellent shape, due largely to the guidance he’s received from his personal trainer Jeff Cavaliere (ATHLEAN-X), and we trust this will prove beneficial to the recovery process. As a side note, we later learned the greatest damage to his body took place before the match was over, but being the true professional he is and among the hardest workers to ever step foot in the ring, he insisted to see the match through to the end.” -Steve Martinez
We have now learned that Sting will open up Monday Night Raw tonight at 8:00 PM US Eastern Time, for some, on the USA Network. This will likely be to address the injury sustained in last night’s match, and by other reports before Steve Martinez’s statement, could mean the curtain call for The Icon.
