Sting got fans talking while performing a tornado tag team match with Darby Allin on the June 28th AEW Dynamite, where they defeated Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho.

Sting did a move at the end of the match in which he jumped from a ladder from the ring to the outside, sending Guevara through two tables. Due of Sting’s spinal stenosis, fans were concerned when he banged his lips on one of the tables and began bleeding.

Today on Busted Open Radio, Allin emphasised that Sting is doing well and commented on their post-fight conversation.

Allin will compete in the AEW Blind Eliminator tag tournament alongside International Champion Orange Cassidy against Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland.

Allin said, “He’s (Sting) actually doing great. We talked the day after (he jumped off the ladder on Dynamite) and he said he was feeling great which is awesome because I pulled him aside after that match and said, ‘Yo, just be honest with me, how you feeling? Not just your mouth but your neck, every single thing about your body’ because people forget, he kind of retired in 2014, you know? When he took a buckle bomb, people kind of think that, you know? So for him to be going as hard and trust me when I say this, it’s none of my ideas, it’s all him. He’s just like, ‘All right, there’s a ladder here tonight, I’ll jump off it’ and a lot of people think it’s me being kind of being the bad influence but nah, it’s him. He’s got that hunger, he’s got that want to give the fans something and he’s feeling great and I’m stoked.”
