John Cena Injury: Updates on WWE Star's Arm Injury
With talk running rampant about an injury to John Cena’s shoulder resulting from his match at Extreme Rules, the possibility of the WWE megastar taking time off has become a reality.
Locker room physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com about the severity of the injuries Cena suffered in his match against Brock Lesnar:
The most obvious injury was the laceration to his head, which caused a substantial amount of bleeding. He also has suffered a shoulder injury. Initial testing in the training room leads me to believe there may be torn muscles, possibly a torn rotator cuff or a biceps muscle.
Is This a Work?
UPDATE: Monday, April 30, 11:40 a.m. ET by Donald Wood
After a wild night at Extreme Rules, John Cena is spending the morning at the doctor’s office.
John Cena took to his Twitter to talk about the injury and when he would address the fans about the severity:
While it is still unclear how much of this is an actual work or real, he is taking time off from the company. How long it is scheduled to be and how long it will actually be depends heavily on the ratings without him.

What It Means
Whether the shoulder was really injured Sunday night at Extreme Rules or not, the man has to be less than 100 percent after spending the last two years almost non-stop on the road. This is the star’s chance to make his family’s wish and go home.
For the WWE, it shows that they have confidence enough in stars like CM Punk and Sheamus to be the major faces in Cena’s absence. Adding Lesnar to the mix makes much more sense as well, especially if Cena is out for over a month.
The WWE has already started to push the younger guys on TV and on PPVs, so this should just open up more of an opportunity for people to make lasting impressions.
Expect guys like Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler to see their stock rise as they are put against better competition each and every week.
The only question mark surrounding Cena’s departure from the WWE will be what happens if the product’s numbers start to dip. Would WWE cut his vacation short if they had to?
