Longtime wrestler Sting was hurt during his match against Seth Rollins at the WWE’s "Night of Champions" show on Sunday.

The extent of the injury is unknown. Dave Metlzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that it was a neck injury and it was "significant."

The WWE released a very brief statement on Monday that didn’t provide any information.

The 56-year-old Sting, who returned to the ring at WrestleMania in April, does not wrestle on a regular basis. However, on Sunday’s show, he went through the Spanish announcer’s table.

Sting also looked very wobbly after taking a "Buckle Bomb" from Rollins.
