– In another update on Sting, TMZ Sports reports that he is now resting at home after suffering a serious neck injury at WWE Night of Champions last night. TMZ notes that the injury is so serious that doctors are not able to give a long-term prognosis just yet.
While Sting was scheduled for RAW, if he’s at home resting he obviously won’t be appearing live tonight.
Sting was injured a few times during the match but the most serious damage was caused by the buckle bomb, which caused the neck injury. As noted, Sting’s manager posted the following on his Facebook page today:
“As many of you may already know, Sting is undergoing treatment for the injuries he sustained in last night’s match with Seth Rollins. Doctors will continue to evaluate his condition, but he is a man of remarkable health and resiliency, especially at his age and with all he’s endured throughout his stellar career. Therefore, we are optimistic he will have a speedy recovery and return to full health soon. Sting has kept his body in excellent shape, due largely to the guidance he’s received from his personal trainer Jeff Cavaliere (ATHLEAN-X), and we trust this will prove beneficial to the recovery process. As a side note, we later learned the greatest damage to his body took place before the match was over, but being the true professional he is and among the hardest workers to ever step foot in the ring, he insisted to see the match through to the end.” -Steve Martinez
