Ric Flair Suffers Broken Bursa Sac During Match Against Sting
Ric Flair suffered a broken bursa sac in his left elbow during his match against Sting last Monday, which aired on Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling. The injury occurred when he took a superplex off the top rope.
“It was brutal,” Flair told Mike Mooneyham of The Post and Courier. “I thought I had broken my arm on that spot. I don’t know how I did it either.
“Sting put me down flat on that superplex, but somehow I hit something. It broke the bursa sack in my elbow. But at that moment I was sure I had broken my arm in half.”
Flair says the move was perfectly executed.
“I must have put my arm down wrong or something,” he said. “I really don’t know how it happened. I’ve got one arm twice the size of the other right now.”
Flair says the injury definitely affected the rest the match, though they were able to finish it.
“When he hit me with the (Stinger) splash and went for the Scorpion, I couldn’t even take a face bump. I couldn’t put my arm down to take it. I couldn’t hit him either. It was brutal.”
Flair added that his elbow no longer hurts and he merely needs to be cautious of acquiring an infection.
