Is Sting Retired? 2 Superstars May Join WWE and Legend Says WWE is Pushing Reigns Too Much


It was previously reported by TMZ.com that Sting had apparently made the decision to retire from wrestling due to the condition of his neck. It was further reported that the official announcement of his retirement could come at next month’s WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Dallas, Texas.

In an update, Sting recently spoke to a TMZ.com reporter, who asked him about the ongoing reports. Sting said that he’s heard about them, but that his neck is “okay” and that he isn’t officially retired.

According to Dave Meltzer and The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the two main reasons for Bobby Roode and Eric Young requesting their releases from TNA Impact Wrestling were because of their frustrations with the company’s booking and creative, as well as the fact that they both recently asked for a pay raise and were told that it wasn’t going to happen.

Regarding their futures in wrestling, perhaps not surprisingly, The Wrestling Observer reports that there is a fair amount of chatter going around that they will both be heading to WWE.

More details will be posted as they become available.

WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan recently appeared on Jim Ross’s Ross Report Podcast and shared his thoughts on WWE’s booking of Roman Reigns.

“They’re pushing him down the folks’ throat. I mean, they’re pushing him too hard. It’s a different business nowadays. They just seem to be pushing him too hard. Take your time,” said Duggan.

“To be that marquee guy for WWE, you’ve got to have a certain kind of look and he’s a handsome guy, good body, a lot of teeth. He’s got that marquee type [of] appeal if the people accept him. How do you do that? I can’t tell you. You can’t coach that. It’s something that some people have.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
