During interviews you have given in recent months you revealed that surgery was on the table as a potential option in the wake of the spinal injuries you sustained during your Night of Champions 2015 match with Seth Rollins. Did you ultimately have surgery?
I actually did not have surgery. Two neurologists [Dr. Joseph Maroon and one in Houston] were saying the same thing. The side effects you’re supposed to have, I’m not really having any. I’m feeling good [and] completely normal.
Had there been any early discussions prior to the injury of what your role could be at WrestleMania 32? Or, was it just something that you had in your mind?
Yes, it was in my mind, of course, but everyone knew that I definitely wanted to have that one match. And, of course, WrestleMania would have been the place to do it. But, I got hurt and the rest is history.
Hypothetically speaking, if your Night of Champions 2015 match against Seth Rollins was to be the last match you ever wrestled, would you be content with that being how you went out?
Well, of course I would. You know, somebody of Seth’s caliber … World Title … WWE … pay-per-view. What a way to go out. You couldn’t ask for more.
Last question: There has been a lot of discussion recently, but, as of today, in your opinion, do you ever think we will see Sting wrestle again?
I have to say it: The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing’s for sure.
