Sting is injured and not cleared to travel

The May 18 episode of AEW Dynamite ended with an injury angle where Sting’s left leg was Pillmanized by Kyle O’Reilly and the Undisputed Elite. Some folks thought it might lead to a tag team match at Double or Nothing 2022 this Sunday (May 29) pitting Sting and Darby Allin against reDRagon, but that’s not the case.

Sting didn’t appear on last night’s go-home episode of Dynamite in Las Vegas, which is also where Double or Nothing will be held. After Dynamite was over, AEW announced that Sting is not cleared to travel due to injury:

It’s unknown whether the 63 year old legend has a legitimate injury or if this is just a work. The Double or Nothing roster crunch is a real thing, so perhaps Sting and Darby are simply joining FTR and Toni Storm as some of the notable wrestlers who are healthy but didn’t make the cut for a match.

Here’s the updated card for Double or Nothing:

  • Hangman Page (c) vs. CM Punk for the AEW World championship
  • Thunder Rosa (c) vs. Serena Deeb for the AEW Women’s World title
  • Jurassic Express (c) vs. Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland for the AEW Tag Team championship
  • Jade Cargill (c) vs. Anna Jay for the TBS championship
  • Jericho Appreciation Society vs. Blackpool Combat Club, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz
  • The Hardys vs. Young Bucks
  • Wardlow vs. MJF
  • Samoa Joe vs. Adam Cole in the men’s Owen Hart tourney finals
  • Britt Baker vs. Kris Statlander or Ruby Soho in the women’s Owen Hart tourney finals
  • House of Black vs. Death Triangle
  • HOOKhausen vs. Tony Nese & Smart Mark Sterling (pre-show)
