Breaking News: John Cena Injured, Out Indefinitely

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IAugust 25, 2008

Just week's away from WWE Unforgiven, the company has lost one of its biggest stars due to injury.

Arguably the most love/hated Superstar in the WWE, John Cena has suffered a herniated disc in his neck at Summerslam. The injury happened during his match against Batista.

Cena will need surgery and will be out indefinitly. This means that a replacement will be named for RAW's Championship Scramble match later tonight on RAW.

This is a tough break for Cena, who just came back at last year's Royal Rumble from a torn pectoral muscle injury.

Indeed, this is a tough break for the WWE as well. John Cena is one of the most popular performers in the company—whether you love him or hate him—and he gets the crowd going.  However, RAW has a big roster and can cope with his loss.

Who will be named as Cena's replacement for Unforgiven? Tune in later to find out!
