• Sting Underwent Surgery Before His AEW Full Gear 2022 Match

During a recent K&C Masterpiece interview, WCW Legend Sting revealed that he had knee surgery a few weeks before his match at the AEW Full Gear 2022 PPV (where he teamed up with Darby Allin to defeat Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal).

Here’s what The Icon had to say:

“I just had surgery, six or seven weeks ago now, basically just a clean out on my very old knees.

I’ve seen those that went through the physical therapy process with flying colors, did what they were supposed to do, and worked through the pain versus those who did not, and those who did not, they never recover, the game never comes back to them.

I know that is of the utmost importance. For me, I had to do things differently in the ring, I had to prepare differently, train differently, think differently in the ring and come up with more innovative ways to accomplish my goal.”

Sting wrestled for Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) / Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1987 until AOL Time Warner sold the company in March 2001.

He then chose not to join the World Wrestling Federation. He signed with Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) instead, where he became a full-time Superstar from 2006 until 2014.

The Icon finally joined WWE and made his debut at the 2014 Survivor Series PPV, but had to retire from active pro wrestling after an injury at the Night of Champions 2015 pay-per-view.

By the time he was cleared to wrestle again, his obvious dream match opponent The Undertaker retired. Sting then cut all ties with WWE and decided to join Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in December 2020.
