Wrestling Legend Sting Retires
Wrestling legend Sting has retired. The iconic wrestler hasn’t been in the ring since his Night Of Champions match against Seth Rollins. He had badly injured his neck when Rollins tossed him into the turnbuckle. The wrestling icon will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year in Dallas, Texas.
After consulting with several doctors, the wrestler whose real name is Steve Borden was diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis. The same condition that forced superstar Edge to retire in 2011. Sting has served as the face of WCW and TNA before making his long awaited signing with WWE.
Sting has said he is willing to take on a non-physical role inside the company, but nothing official has been announced on that front as of yet. The 59 year old Omaha, Nebraska native is set to make his announcement official Wrestlemania weekend from Dallas, Texas.
His career spans 30 years from his start in the Continental Wrestling Association under the name Flash, until most recently at Night Of Champions on September 21st, 2015 (match can be seen below). Although Sting’s popularity never faded after his rise to prominence he saw his most successful run in World Championship Wrestling, where he spent a majority of his wrestling career.
