Recently, current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, was a guest on CBS Radio Dallas 105.3 THE FAN. Rollins talked about facing Sting at WWE Night Of Champions and commented on Sting's recovery.
On the topic of facing Sting at WWE Night Of Champions, Rollins said that he has not had the chance to do something like wrestle two championship matches back-to-back in a long while and he said that it was an honor to be in the ring with Sting.
"Obviously, being in the ring with a legend like Sting, who I believe is from Dallas [Texas], actually, that was wild, dude."
Rollins noted that he had an opportunity to talk to Sting after the match and he gave Sting a lot of credit for how he wanted to approach the match and for being in such great shape.
"[Sting] and I had a conversation after the match. I mean, it wasn't like he was completely out of it. He just had a little bit of a scary situation." Rollins continued, "you've got to hand it to the guy. I mean, Sting is 56 years old. That's incredible. I'm 29, so, I mean, the fact that he was able to get in there and do the things he did for that match and stuff, it's really a testament to how good of shape he kept himself in over the years and stuff like that. And, it's not ballet. We don't get in there and dance around, so it's physical and he pulled no punches and he wanted to go all the way, balls to the wall."
Rollins stated that Sting is doing very well now and recuperating comfortably in Dallas.
"It's good to hear from him and I'm glad he actually had some really kind words to say about me as well, so I appreciate that coming from someone I looked up to quite a bit when I was younger."
