If you’re a Sting fan, and aren’t really getting jiggy with the way the WCW legend called it a career, you might have a little reason to get excited. TMZ reported last week that Sting would be forced to officially retire from wrestling due to the cervical spinal stenosis he suffered in his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match with Seth Rollins at Night of Champions in 2015.
If you’re like myself,, : the Stinger told TMZ last night in a video that he’s not exactly retired yet. “My neck is okay. I’m not officially retired,” the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion said to TMZ. “There’s a lot of rumors out there, but I’m not officially retired.”
So what does this all mean? Well, the betting man in me is willing to think that Sting was waiting until his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame to officially announce that he will never step into the squared circle again. However, if you are an eternal optimist, maybe Sting makes one last WrestleMania moment and costs The Undertaker his match against Shane McMahon and rids The Authority of their power once and for all? Maybe it leads to a year long buildup of a WrestleMania 33 matchup between the two icons who have never faced each other before.
Maybe it’s all just wishful thinking. For what it’s worth, the original video on TMZ Sports has been taken down since last night, but you can check it out below via Twitter. The WWE Hall of Fame takes place the night before WrestleMania 32 on Saturday, April 2, on the WWE Network.
