Speaking on ManceSplainin, Mance detailed what happened with his injury.

"He [Dirty Dango] chucked me out of the ring and when I hit the ground, I heard...it was like two shotguns going off. Boom! Boom! I heard it and I instantly knew I was fucked. The crowd knew I was fucked. As soon as I heard it, you could hear people gasp. It was horrible. It sucked. I called it a Psycho Sid. I was fucked. I'm gonna have to start doing commentary or some bullshit," he said. "The paramedics come in and tell me they're going to take my boot off. (My bone) wasn't sticking out. I wear this ankle brace anyway because I'm prone to rolling my ankles when I'm on the (basketball) court slam dunking fools. They said if I hadn't worn that, the bone most likely would've popped through. When I broke it, I broke the (tibia) and (fibia)."

Mance said the doctors set and push his ankle back together, which was the worst pain he had felt and would rather have his tongue stapled.

Asked if he thought his career was over, Mance said, "No, because I'm an idiot. A lot of people get injured, you're talking to a guy where I collapsed my lung and continued wrestling with one working for five minutes. I was going to get on a flight right after that, I guess I could've died or something."

Mance said he has another doctor's appointment on December 2 or 3 to get an update on his injury.

"I don't know when I'm coming back, I have to go back to the doctor. They did the surgery and put a rode between where the bone broke and some plates and screws. I can move my leg and toes and walk a little bit," he said.

Mance is currently using crutches to help him get around and he's been drinking while watching Clash of Champions during his time away from the ring.
