WWE: Sting injury causing uncertainty amongst medical team

Published 1 Comments

Football News

Night of Champions was supposed to the moment the WWE Universe finally got to see Sting at the peak of his powers.

Instead, the veteran wrestler's title match against Seth Rollins had to be shortened after he picked up an injury in the main event title match.


And now, after failing to appear during the opening stages of Monday Night Raw, it appears the extent of Sting's injury is causing serious concern.

Speaking yesterday, Sting's manager had claimed that the neck injury suffered by his client wouldn't prohibit the WCW legend from making a speedy recovery.

Now though, TMZ is refuting those claims. The publication reported today that, so severe is the injury, the doctors have been unable to give a long-term prognosis.

Whilst the latest update paints a dark picture for the ageing Superstar moving forward, it wasn't all bad news.

Future unclear

The same TMZ report noted that, after undergoing a CAT scan, it was confirmed that Sting had not suffered any fractured bones in his neck. Had he not been so fortunate then retirement would likely have been the only option.

Having waited so long to see the legendary wrestler in a WWE ring, the organization won't exactly be ecstatic if Sunday night's defeat to Seth Rollins is the last time he is seen in competitive action.

Still, considering his age and the extent of the injury, it would be foolish for the WWE to try and rush Sting back into the equation any sooner than needed. Fans may have to wait until WrestleMania 32 for his next meaningful appearance.
