Retirement rumors continue to fly since word spread that Sting was possibly badly injured at the WWE Night of Champions PPV this past Sunday during his WWE World Heavyweight championship match with Seth Rollins. But as these whispers of a career-ending injury turned false, many still felt the scare and overall toll on the 56-year-old legend's body would be enough to cut The Vigilante's WWE career short. So, is this the last we've seen of the Stinger in a WWE ring? WWE.com has sat down with The Icon to conduct an interview addressing his future and the injury that happened this past Sunday night. Here are some highlights: On what happened in the ring that night:
I had tingling, numbness down both arms, all the way to my fingertips. And then, later in the match, I just fell wrong, whatever it was, and this time went down both arms and into my legs, and I couldnt feel my legs too well. They just felt like rubber. I dont know how to describe it. I had to go down on all fours there for a minute, get my composure. I was a little I was worried.
On the treatment he received during his hospital stay:
I was out in the hospital out like a light. They had a neck brace on me, and they were pumping me with to get me out of pain. I had to do a CT scan and an MRI. They ended up talking to my wife, and I have some details from my wife, but I still have . They mentioned cervical spinal stenosis, but thats only part of what I heard. I dont know if theres anything else.
On the moment during the match where he was injured:
Oh, yeah, definitely. Both times into the turnbuckle. First time was like a whiplash. Its my fault, bottom line. I know better. The second time, I went up into the air and back toward the turnbuckle like that, I thought, Well, thats not going to happen again, and it did. The second time was worse.
On whether he would want to return to the ring:
Hmmm, in the right scenario in the right scenario, yeah.
On if his match with Seth Rollins was his last:
I hate it when Im asked that question because the answer truly is a question mark, and the question mark is as bold as it could ever be at this point.
What do you think? Has Sting wrestled his last match?
