When Sting finally signed with the WWE last year, the sky, it seemed, was the limit for the wrestling legend.
Unfortunately, in the 11 months since debuting in the organization, things haven't exactly gone to plan.
Two defeats and a serious neck injury at Night of Champions have had some suggesting it is time for Sting to call time on his career altogether. And, comments made by the veteran wrestler at a recent Q&A event certainly suggest his body may be telling him the same thing.

Sting, as reported by NoDQ.com, actually told fans in Glasgow, Scotland that he was feeling good as he recovers from the neck injury sustained versus Seth Rollins on September 20th.
Apparently, though, trained medical experts don't share the 56-year-old's opinion. Sting relayed that MRI's have shown worrying results, before noting that doctors have told him things do not look great moving forward.
Later in the Q&A session, Sting also confirmed that his neck would "have to be dealt with" at some point down the line.
Time to go?
Considering his age, and the apparent severity of the injury this time around, this update won't do much to sway the opinion of those who feel Sting should retire sooner rather than later.
And, although the veteran would undoubtedly be against walking away from the WWE without a win to his name, it looks like the decision might be taken out of his control if things don't drastically improve.
With many still dreaming of a Sting vs Undertaker WrestleMania match, the WWE Universe will, of course, keep their fingers crossed that the veteran can make a recovery in time to feud with The Dead Man.
