From Sterling:

Unfortunately I must announce that I am injured.

Two months ago, while wrestling, I hurt my right knee. After getting it checked, scanned and checked again it turns out I need to go under the knife and have my knee repaired. It requires an operation that will place me on the sidelines for a while but I’ll be back before you know it!

I have been wrestling and working on the knee since the injury, lining my ducks up to get myself in a position for surgery both professionally and personally. I would like to thank the wrestlers and promotions who have worked and supported me through this.

I’ll name as many as I can remember below:

@nolimitwrestling @bh_sean_guinness
@new_wave_academy @bronco_pw
@swwwrestling @thezakzodiac
@allstarwrestlinguk @henchmen_jim

A special thanks to @thisis_progress for your accommodation and flexibility. Your ongoing check ins and your ability to work around me have made me feel like a real family member.

A special thanks to @prowrestlingchaos, you guys are friends for life and thank you for your continued help, it is so valued by me.

Obviously, thank you @nickrileypro. My brother in arms and your love is cherished.

To the fans who love me, hate me or love to hate me (I’m looking at you, ballroom), I will not be physical for a spell but I will still be involved in other parts of the wrestling world and I have some exciting things lined up! Let me know what you would like to see from me during this time.

Love & hate,


Sterling wrestled twice at PROGRESS Chapter 163: Twisted Metal, teaming with Nick Riley. They defended the PROGRESS Tag Team Titles against SAnitY (Axel Tischer & Big Damo) and then lost them to Cheeky Little Buggers (Alexxis Falcon & Charles Crowley).

Fightful wishes Sterling the best in his recovery.
