Statement On Sting’s Injury
Sting’s injury at Night of Champions was serious enough for his scheduled opening segment of RAW to be cut. Instead the legend flew home to get things checked out. His manager Steve Martinez posted the following statement on Facebook:
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.
Daniel Bryan Raring To Go
Speaking of injuries Daniel Bryan is raring to go, but reiterated that WWE are being cautious due to his history of concussions. He told Sport 360:
I feel great. I feel like I’m ready to wrestle. If they called me to wrestle tomorrow I would. It’s just a matter of getting cleared. I’ve had a long history of concussions, so they are a bit hesitant to get me back.

10 Days In Jail For Entering WWE Ring
In an effort to prevent future rail jumpers WWE have decided to unleash the full force of their lawyers. Oscar Ramirez who jumped the rail and entered the ring at the PPV plead guilty to criminal trespass and has promptly been sentenced to 10 days in jail. This is the first time anybody has gone to jail in this situation.
Chris Jericho posted the following on Twitter:
So the jackass who jumped in the ring at #nightofchampions got sentenced to jail time. Let this be a lesson to all…stay out of OUR ring! ?
