5 Pro Wrestling World Champions' Careers That Were Altered By Sudden Injuries

Harsh reality can strike quick...

4. Sting (2015)

Sting

It's hard to believe it's been five years since Sting's first-ever WWE match. Sadly, we're also rolling up on five years since Sting's *last* WWE match, as well as last match anywhere, as a result of an injury sustained in a WWE championship match against Seth Rollins.

Rollins delivered his patented Buckle Bomb onto Sting late in their title bout, resulting in the 56-year-old icon sustaining cervical spinal stenosis, which required surgery to fix. As a result of the injury, Sting officially announced his retirement the following April.
