WWE's Sting Officially Retires 'This Ain't Goodbye'

4/2/2016 8:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

040216-sting-retires-wweSting has officially retired from pro wrestling ... making his announcement at his WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, just as TMZ Sports said he would. 

We broke the story ... the wrestling legend messed up his neck real bad at his "WWE Night of Champions" match against Seth Rollins back in September -- and was never able to recover.

Sources connected to Sting tell us he was evaluated by several doctors who all agree -- it's just too risky for the wrestler to get back in the squared circle ... so, he's decided to hang up his singlet. 

Well, he made it official tonight ... saying, "On this very night, at this very moment ... I'm going to finish my wrestling carer under the WWE umbrella ... and I am so proud of that."

"I am officially going to retire tonight."

He added, "I just want you to know this isn't goodbye, it's just see ya later."

As we previously reported, Sting is open to a non-physical role with the WWE -- but so far, it's unclear if the two sides have been able to hammer out a deal.

Snoop Dogg Pumped to Be WWE Hall of Famer Here's My Hogan Impression

3/31/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg is PUMPED to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame ... so pumped he broke into a Hulk Hogan impression at the mere mention of the honor and we gotta say ... it's kinda dope. 

Snoop was leaving Lure Nightclub with fellow 213 alum Warren G (R.I.P. Nate Dogg) when we asked him how it feels to be going into the WWE Hall Of Fame as a celebrity inductee. 

You'd think he feels pretty honored ... and he shows us just how much by honoring another WWE legend ... and launching into a pretty dead-on Hulk Hogan act. 

BTW -- a shout-out from Snoop must feel pretty good if you're the Hulkster ... Snoop's a huge deal in the black community and Hulk is still kinda on thin ice after the whole "N-word" ordeal.

Check out the clip. 

'Making a Murderer' New Prison But Still ... No WrestleMania For Brendan Dassey

3/31/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

033016-brendan-dassey-ap-02"Making a Murderer" star, and controversial convict, Brendan Dassey's lost all hope in his new prison -- he will not get to see his favorite show, WrestleMania ... TMZ has learned.

Dassey transferred to Columbia Criminal Institution in Wisconsin in January, and prison officials tell us there's a strict rule against violence, foul language and nudity for TV viewing. That means the WWE's main event is off the table, so avid wrestling fan Dassey is screwed.

If you watched 'Murderer,' you'll recall Dassey's main concern after getting arrested for homicide in March 2006 ... was that he'd miss WrestleMania 22 the next month. 

Dassey -- who's serving a life sentence -- ran into the same ban in his previous prison. He should get used to missing out, since he's still more than 30 years from a shot at parole.

The WWE superstar was out in NYC when we asked if he felt politics were similar to pro wrestling. His response: 

"It seems like at least this year around they're studying our playbook awfully hard."

There's more ... Cena also tells us why he's FIRED UP over Shane McMahon's return to the WWE. 

And BONUS -- he also answers the question everyone wants to know ... did he really shave his ass for that naked scene in "Trainwreck"?

The pic of Vader's junk was quickly removed from his Twitter page shortly after it went public -- and the 60-year-old was quick to explain how it happened.

Hulk Hogan Scores $25 Million in Punitive Damages

3/21/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

321_hulk_hogan_gettyHulk Hogan just scored $25 million in punitive damages in his sex tape lawsuit, bringing his total haul to $140 million. 

A jury just awarded the famed wrestler the punitive award, with this breakdown. Gawker Media must pay $15 mil, site owner Nick Denton is on the hook for $10 mil, and A.J. Daulerio, the Editor responsible for posting the tape, must pay $100,000.

As we reported, the jury awarded Hulk $115 million Friday for actual damages.

Gawker just issued a statement saying it is confident the verdict will be overturned on appeal. The site maintains it has a right to post the tape because it was newsworthy and therefore protected by the First Amendment. 

Gawker also believes the judge erred by not allowing critical evidence and testimony in the trial ... notably the testimony of Bubba Clem, who claims Hulk knew he was making a sex tape.

Sting Retiring From Wrestling ... Neck's Too Jacked Up

3/17/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0316-sting-wwe-01Sting's wrestling career is over ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Long story short ... the wrestling legend messed up his neck real bad at his "WWE Night of Champions" match against Seth Rollins back in September -- and was never able to recover

Sources connected to Sting tell us he was evaluated by several doctors who all agree -- it's just too risky for the wrestler to get back in the squared circle ... so, he's decided to hang up his singlet.

We're told the 56-year-old was formally diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis -- a condition affecting the nerves that can result in extreme pain and discomfort.

In fact, it's the same condition that forced fellow WWE superstar Edge to retire in 2011.

Our sources tell us Sting may make his official announcement next month at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in Texas ... but we're told it's a done deal. 

As far as Sting's future -- it's up in the air. We're told Sting is open to a non-physical role with the company ... but we're told no formal offer has been made. 

Sting was a legend in the ring ... rising to superstardom in the late '80s before becoming the face of the WCW and a huge fan favorite in the WWE. 


WWE's Neville Emotional Reaction to Fractured Ankle

3/16/2016 6:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nothing fake about this ... WWE superstar Neville was so distraught after breaking his ankle during a televised match this week, he nearly cried when the WWE doctor confirmed the injury. 

Check out this video of Neville getting checked out by Dr. Chris Amann after his match at "Raw" ... you can see how heartbroken Neville was to learn that his injury was most likely a fracture. 

(You can see video of the actual injury here ... but it's nasty)

WWE eventually confirmed what Amann suspected ... the ankle was broken.

The good news ... Neville won't need surgery -- and he's only expected to miss 2 to 3 months.

Daniel Cormier Jon Jones Told Me to 'Suck His D***'

3/4/2016 2:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Cormier says Jon Jones' good guy image is all BS -- claiming Jon privately called him the "biggest p***y he ever met" and told him to "suck his d***."

It all went down at a UFC media event in Vegas -- with DC saying that Jon is a fraud ... and hasn't learned a damn thing from all of his issues outside of the Octagon. 

Jon took exception and they went off on each other ... insane. 

The two will settle it in the cage at UFC 197 next month.
