Welcome to a new feature here at Cewsh Reviews we’ve creatively titled “Breaking News.” Basically, when something big happens in wrestling we’re going to report it and do a little commentary on it. Isn’t that exciting?
In this case, Dave Meltzer reported earlier today that Sting suffered a serious neck injury at Night of Champions last night and his career may be over. According to Meltzer the injury occurred during the second turnbuckle Powerbomb towards the end of the match. We all saw Sting collapse while running the ropes and at the time it appeared to be a legitimate injury, though I don’t think anyone thought it was this severe.
With Sting being 56 years old a neck injury of any severity would put his future into question. There had been speculation that his retirement match would be at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas this year, and that is obviously now in question.
