Former WCW Champion Sting on his recovery rate!

The young wrestlers in this match were sidelined when Sting delivered a splash over Andrade from the top of a balcony. However, considering Sting’s age, it appears that he took more on his body than needed.

After the Revolution PPV, All Elite Wrestling hosted a post-interview show for the media. The 62-year-old Sting expressed his views on his latest match.

The former WCW Champion was asked about his physique and recovery routine after the AEW Revolution performance. “I have to train and do everything completely different than I did. And it takes me a lot longer to recover after these matches,” Sting said.

What we saw at tonight’s Revolution PPV was unbelievable. Sting has been a part of the wrestling industry for over 30 years.

Young wrestlers usually look forward to jumping off a balcony and performing a splash in the ring. However, given his age, Sting surprised the fans by pulling off such an incredible stunt.

Sting said, “That would be pretty awesome for me. I love to do something different than just standard wrestling matches. So I tend to like these types of matches.”

The wrestling veteran will take some time to recover from his Revolution PPV match. Although during the post-show interview, he did not mention a specific duration for his recovery. Sting taking a break from the AEW programming would be a great thing.

However, this would put Darby Allin to disadvantage when his mentor, Sting, would not accompany him to the ring. Nevertheless, we wish the legend a smooth recovery and hope to see him back in the ring soon.
