One of professional wrestling?s long-time superstars is reportedly going to call it quits in the very near future. Sting has been one of the tenured wrestlers in the WWE and has clashed against many fierce rivals. Unfortunately, news have just surfaced that the wrestling veteran may be at the end of his career and that he will be announcing his retirement because of injury.
According to a report from TMZ, the wrestling career of Sting is now all but over due in large part to a neck injury that he suffered during his match against Seth Rollins at WWE Night of Champions in September of last year. While the injury happened a while ago, the 56 year old wrestler was never able to completely recover from it.
According to Wrestling Inc, Sting was reportedly diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis which can cause extreme pain due to its effect on the nerves. It is worth noting that this is the same injury that forced the retirement of WWE superstar Edge back in 2011. According to the report from TMZ, Sting consulted with several doctors and unfortunately their advice is for the veteran to retire from wrestling for good.
While there have been no announcements made yet, the same TMZ report cites that Sting may make his retirement official at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony which is going to be held in Texas next month. It doesn?t mean that you will be seeing the last of him in the WWE though as there could always be a chance that he can still stay with WWE although he would not be able to wrestle.
Sting has been one of the major icons of professional wrestling since the 80?s and he is surely going to be missed in the ring by fans all over the world. Be sure to check back here to find out more news and updates about the WWE, Sting and everything about tech and entertainment.
