Wrestling Superstar Sting may have suffered a ?significant? injury during a WWE pay-per-view (PPV) main event against his opponent. The iconic 56-year-old wrestler may have fought his last match at the ?Night of Champions? on Sunday in Houston when his opponent WWE champion Seth Rollins made a wrestling move that may have ended his long-standing WWE career, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Sting, whose real name is Steve Borden, was in a match against Seth Rollins when his opponent gave him a ?buckle bomb? (a move where you carry the opponent and throw him in the corner back-first against the turnbuckles) in the corner, this caused Sting?s neck and head to whip violently on to the top turnbuckle. He immediately reeled away from the corner until he wobbled and fell to the mat, posted by Yahoo! Sports.
A WWE Certified Athletic Trainer checked on him after a few minutes when Sting wasn?t looking too well. The wrestler was given a short rest and eventually returned to the ring only to lose the match soon after, with Seth Rollins reversing Sting?s Scorpion Death Lock into a roll-up which makes Rollins still the WWE champion, shared by Yahoo! Sports.
WWE announced that Sting?s injury was official but they have still yet to announce any further details on the damage. TMZ Sports then reported that Sting is recovering in his home and that doctors are still not able to make a full diagnosis of the wrestling superstar, ?Our wrestling sources tell us, doctors did a CAT scan at the hospital Sunday and thankfully there were no fractures. Sting was released Monday afternoon and is on his way home. He?s able to walk but is in significant pain,? A report from TMZ Sports said. ?Sting?s manager says the wrestler is in ?remarkable health and resiliency,? especially for his age.?
