HOUSTON, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A 56-year-old wrestling legend could cut his career short after a significant injury Sunday.
Steve Borden, the wrestler known as Sting, was wrestling Seth Rollins in a WWE PPV main event's Nigh of Champions Sunday in Houston.
During the event, Rollins implemented his "buckle bomb," sending Sting's back into a corner turnbuckle.
WWE.com confirmed the injury but did not offer any updates or details on his condition.
Sting is recovering at home Monday but has no "long-term prognosis," according to TMZ Sports. The website reports that Sting had a CAT scan, which revealed no fractures.
Sting's wrestling Facebook page, "The Real Sting," offered an update on his condition.
"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," the post said.
