According to reports in Toronto from fans in attendance, Santino Marella has announced his retirement from in-ring competition. Santino told the crowd that he suffered his third neck injury. Santino was born in Mississauga, Ontario but has been billed as being from Calabria, Italy. Santino, 35, said earlier this week in an interview that his career was winding down and was interested in staying with the company in a non-wrestling role. He’s been featured on the WWE Network pre-shows in recent weeks.

During his speech he apologized for the crowd for not being able to perform and said that he is proud to be Canadian.
