Don’t count out Sting just yet! The pro-wrestling icon was reportedly retiring from the ring due to a major neck injury, but HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop that the man called Sting will return to action after he’s inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame!
Sting, 57, may be down, but he’s not out! The wrestling legend who has battled superstars like Ric Flair, 67, Hulk Hogan, 62, and Triple H, 46, in the squared circle was reportedly at the end of his career. However, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Stinger will be back before fans know it!
“Sting will be expecting to hear the chanting from fans of ‘One More Match’ during his speech at this year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. The pro-wrestling icon will be inducted into WWE’s Hall Of Fame during WrestleMania 32 weekend, per to Bleacher Report. When he accepts the honor, the source says Sting plans “to give the fans what they want and tell them that he’ll grant them their wish.”
All the “little Stingers” — as Sting’s nemesis, Ric Flair, would say — will be happy to hear that their hero has plenty of fight left in him, despite the reports of his impending retirement. Sting hasn’t been in a WWE ring since he injured his neck while facing Seth Rollins, 29, at WWE’s Night of Champions.
Sting reportedly developed a case of cervical spinal stenosis, a condition that causes intense pain and extreme discomfort. If this were the case, the legend would have no choice but to retire, just like Daniel Bryan, 34. However, Sting reportedly said that his neck was “okay” and he hasn’t hung up his boots just yet, according to Uproxx.

“As far as he is concerned he is healthy enough to continue wrestling and will,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com. “Even at 57 years old he still has plenty of gas in the tank and not retired.” Will the fans explode during the Hall of Fame ceremony on April 2 when Sting promises one more match? We’ll have to tune in and watch!
Are you glad that Sting’s not going to retire, HollywoodLifers? Who do you think he should face when he comes back?
