“I was not going to [come to Comic-Con], in a couple of days I’ll be fine, but right now I’m in a lot of pain,” William added. Shatner’s leg and foot pain was so bad that he was spotted being wheeled out of Comic-Con without a shoe on his right foot, likely because of the pain wearing a shoe caused his injury.
