During his speech for his induction into the Class of 2016 WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Dallas, Steve “Sting” Borden revealed he is now officially retiring.
“On this very night, at this very moment, I’m gonna finish my wrestling career under the WWE umbrella and I’m so proud of that. I am officially going to retire tonight.”
Sting ended his speech grabbing his baseball bat and putting on sunglasses adding, “I just want you to know that this isn’t goodbye. It’s see ya later.”
This announcement comes six months after Sting suffered spinal stenosis during a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Seth Rollins at the Night of Champions PPV back in September 2015. Sting has not wrestled since and a report by TMZ Sports a few weeks ago indicated it was likely he would be retiring.
