Sting Admits Night Of Champions Injury May End His WWE Career
Sting may have wrestled in a WWE ring for the last time.
The WCW legend told WWE.com he went numb in both arms down to his fingertips and struggled to control his legs after receiving a Buckle Bomb from Seth Rollins during their match at Night of Champions on Sunday.
And despite a doctor saying the star was ‘lucky to walk away’ from the bout, Stinger still said he could return for "the right scenario".
Sting said: "I had tingling, numbness down both arms, all the way to my fingertips.
"And then, later in the match, I just fell wrong, whatever it was, and this time [the tingling and numbness] went down both arms and into my legs, and I couldn’t feel my legs too well. They just felt like rubber.
"I had to go down on all fours there for a minute, get my composure.
"I was worried."
The 56-year-old also said initial tests suggested serious neck damage.
He added: "I was out in the hospital — out like a light. They had a neck brace on me, and they were pumping me with [medication] to get me out of pain. I had to do a CT scan and an MRI.
"They ended up talking to my wife, and I have some details from my wife, but I still have [further evaluation ahead].
"They mentioned cervical spinal stenosis, but that’s only part of what I heard. I don’t know if there’s anything else.
"The doctor did tell my wife, 'He’s going to have to get this dealt with. He’s lucky he walked out of there.'"
Asked whether he had wrestled his last match, Sting answered: "I hate it when I’m asked that question because the answer truly is a question mark, and the question mark is as bold as it could ever be at this point."
