WWE 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Sting spoke with Jonathan Coachman of ESPN following his Hall of Fame induction, during which Sting announced his pro wrestling retirement. You can watch the full interview in the video player below, and the following are some highlights:

Sting on having to announce his retirement despite wanting one more match:

“It was a difficult moment for me, because you have the crowd chanting ‘One more match’ and I wanted that one more match. It is time, for several different reasons, but it was hard to do after 30 years.”

Sting on the injury he suffered during his 2015 Night of Champions match against Seth Rollins:

“At Night of Champions against Seth Rollins, there was like a whiplash that happened twice in the match. The first one was shock and numbness down the fingers, and I’ve had that before, but this was pretty severe. The second time it happened I lost control of my legs. Long story short, I have spinal cervical stenosis in two areas of my neck.”
