Jamie Jones: Sting says nostalgia a ‘big thing’


— Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: There were updates on “injuries” to The Miz and C.M. Punk after they were hurt on Monday night’s episode of “Raw.”

From WWE.com, according to Dr. Chris Amann.

The Miz: “We did evaluate (Miz) in the training room and everything appeared to look OK,” said Amann. “He had some bruising around the jawbone; I expect him to be pretty sore, but it doesn’t appear as though there’s any major damage.”

On Punk: “Punk, as you saw, went through a table and landed on the concrete. He suffered multiple bruises and scrapes on his back,” said Amann. “We advised him to get additional treatment, including some X-rays, but he refused, so we’re going to follow up with him tomorrow, see how he feels and re-evaluate him then.”

• Sting said that nostalgia is a main force in keeping wrestlers such as him and Hulk Hogan on television.

“Nostalgia is a big thing, I’ve learned that in this business,” Sting said in an interview with THV-11 in Arkansas. “It’s like a Hulk Hogan, they do not want to see Hulk disappear or go away. I’m the generation after him and so it seems to be the same kind of deal.”

• TNA’s roster is a little lighter. Mr. Anderson and Mickie James left the company recently after their contracts expired.

The Local Corner: Renegade Championship Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 806 Second Ave. in Chatsworth.



Trivia Teaser: Sting and The Ultimate Warrior wrestled as this tag team managed by Dutch Mantel in the Continental Wrestling Association during the mid-1980s.

Check back next week for the answer.
