Santino Marella makes career-related announcement at WWE Live Event

The in-ring career of Santino Marella could be coming to a close, according to comments The Milan Miracle made at a WWE Live Event in Toronto Sunday.

Dressed in street clothes, Marella — a decorated former Intercontinental, United States and WWE Tag Team Champion — addressed the WWE Universe from the middle of the ring inside Toronto’s Ricoh Coliseum. He explained that he’s experiencing issues with his neck — “for the third time” — and stated that between his age and the injury, “this might be the end of Santino Marella in a WWE ring.”
