As everyone is aware, Sting announced his retirement from professional wrestling at last year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony after he suffered a career ending neck injury in his Night of Champions match against Seth Rollins back in 2015.
Dave Meltzer discussed Sting’s status on Wrestling Observer Radio during his mailbag segment and mentioned that Sting has yet to get the surgery he needs done. The belief is that Sting hasn’t opted to get the surgery because it will effect his day-to-day life. Also, if Sting does get the surgery he will not be able to wrestle anyways. Meltzer noted that eventually he will need to get the surgery at some point in his life, but hinted that it’s not needed immediately.
Sting remains under a “Legends” deal with the company and will still make appearances if the company needs him to.
