Sting WWE: Sting is retiring from pro wrestling
The wrestling legend suffered a significant a significant neck injury at “WWE Night of Champions” match against Seth Rollins back in September — and was never able to recover.
Sources connected to Sting tell TMZ he was evaluated by several doctors who all agree — it’s just too risky for the wrestler to get back in the squared circle … so, he’s decided to hang up his singlet.
The gossip website added that say the 56-year-old was formally diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis — a condition affecting the nerves that can result in extreme pain and discomfort.
In fact, it’s the same condition that forced fellow WWE superstar Edge to retire in 2011.
Sting may is expected to make an official announcement next month at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in Texas … but we’re told it’s a done deal.
As far as Sting’s future — it’s up in the air. As many pros do, he may take a non-physical role with the company … but we’re told no formal offer has been made.
The WWE did not immediately return DbTechno’s request for comment. Sting has been customarily silent on social media these days.
