Sting To Announce Retirement At Hall of Fame
TMZ who WWE often employ to break stories, is reporting that Sting’s WWE Hall of Fame induction will mark his in-ring retirement. The neck injury sustained during his match with Seth Rollins has obviously sped up this process:
Sources connected to Sting tell us he was evaluated by several doctors who all agree — it’s just too risky for the wrestler to get back in the squared circle … so, he’s decided to hang up his singlet.
We’re told the 56-year-old was formally diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis — a condition affecting the nerves that can result in extreme pain and discomfort.
Foley and Jeff Hardy Sign Over Their Brains
Add Mick Foley and Jeff Hardy to the list of wrestlers who have signed up to donate their brains to the CTE Center at Boston University, after they pass.
Foley specifically retired due to concussions, while Hardy says despite the bumps he’s taken he hasn’t actually had many concussions himself.

As previously reported Kevin Nash and RVD have signed up to the same program, which is being carried out in partnership with Chris Nowinski’s Concussion Legacy Foundation. The former Tough Enough star himself had to retire due to post-concussion syndrome, and CTE is believed to have played a role in the death of Andrew “Test” Martin and the Benoit tragedy.
