Cast your mind back to the end of August last year and you will remember Seth Rollins had just retained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and won the United States Championship after his triumph against John Cena at SummerSlam.

The following month, The Architect feuded against Cena for the US title and WWE Hall of Famer Sting for the WWE title at Night of Champions, in what turned out to be The Icon's last match due to a neck injury which occurred in the match.

The former WCW star required surgery to correct cervical spinal stenosis and announced his retirement from wrestling in his Hall of Fame speech earlier this year before WrestleMania. However, this may have never happened if what Rollins said in a recent interview is true.

Rollins was interviewed on the CBS Atlanta 92.8's The Game Mornings with Hugh Jackson and John Fricke according to Wrestling Inc, and he was asked about several different topics including his match against Sting last year.

When he was asked if the 2015 Night of Champions clash was always supposed to be Sting's last match, Rollins said: "That was certainly not planned to be his final match, but either way it was an honor. He's an incredible dude. One thing about Steve [Sting] is that he's one of the most humble superstars I've ever met."

Accidents always happen in the ring, but a lot of people have already expressed their disapproval of Rollins due to the amount of injuries that have occurred to his opponents in the ring, Cena and Sting being examples of that. Yet, you can't really blame Rollins for what happened in the match with Sting as he was old and near the end of his active wrestling career.

You do have to wonder what might have happened to Sting if he didn't pick up an injury last year at Night of Champions. Would he have gone on to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Would we have finally seen the dream match between him and The Undertaker? Who knows...
