Sting suffered an injury during his loss last night to Seth Rollins in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Night of Champions.
The WCW Icon appeared to have injured his back during the clash against Rollins after he took the first turnbuckle bomb from the champion, according to Wrestling News.
He had problems moving into different spots to stay in the match and trainers had to come in and examine the injury before he continued.

This was a legitimate injury picked up by Sting and was not part of the match. The bout was scheduled to last longer than it did, but it was ended early by Rollins with a small package pin on the WCW Icon so that he wouldn't make his injury any worse.
Dave Meltzer later confirmed, according to Wrestling News, the injury, and that it was his neck that was in pain. It was a significant injury too.
This doesn't look promising for him moving forward, as it will take him longer to recover from this injury because of his age.
Sting is 56-years-old and he looked brilliant in the ring last night against someone who is much younger than him, 27 years to be exact. It could be a career-ending injury because of how old he is.
It's a shame that we may have all witnessed last night the last time we see Sting competing in a wrestling ring. Fingers crossed he can make his return in time for a special event like WrestleMania 32 next year, but it doesn't look promising.
