WWE.com Interview with Sting Reveals Interesting Injury Status, WWE Hall of Fame 2016 Class


– Sting recently spoke with WWE.com, here are the highlights…

Is His Diagnosis of Spinal Stenosis Accurate?: I am not saying that is inaccurate. I’m agreeing there probably is spinal stenosis or cervical spinal stenosis. I have had certain doctors tell me, “You know, so many athletes of all ages, they’ve got this. They deal with it to some degree or another.” I had one doctor here tell me, “You’re fine, you’re okay — you don’t have anything to worry about.” And then wrestlers say, “I’d see this doctor.” “No, I’d see this one over there.” I’m telling you, it’s just craziness. So I’m thinking, as long as I’m feeling good, why am I going to do anything? And the one thing everyone has said is don’t go under the knife unless you absolutely have to.

Is He Excited For His Hall of Fame Induction?: Oh, absolutely. I got a really good taste of WrestleMania Weekend and what it’s all about last year, and you don’t really understand the scope of it unless you’re actually in it and participating in it — whether you’re a fan, [Superstar] or behind the cameras. But yeah, everywhere I go people are talking about the Hall of Fame. This is huge. I mean, American Airlines Center sells out in one day? It’s crazy.

Has He Thought About His Speech?: Oh yeah, I have, and it’s nerve-wracking, for sure. I know there have been lots of different styles, and sometimes there are guys that have a lot to say [laughs]. But really, the main thing I want to do is just say, “Thank you.” That’s really it. Thank you to the fans, wrestlers, my wife, my kids, God. I’m very grateful for 30 years, I really am — and especially to the fans. That’s probably going to be the gist of what I want to say. I know they love to hear stories — and there are plenty of stories that I could tell, trust me — but, it’s mainly going to be my time to say, “Thank you.”

Will He Wrestle Again?: I have to say it: The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing’s for sure.
