Backstage News On John Cena & Possible HITC Role, New York City Comic-Con Update
– The latest word on John Cena’s injury is that he’s recovering slowly from the elbow surgery. It remains to be seen if Cena will be ready for Hell In a Cell and may end up being a “down to the wire” decision. It was expected that WWE would have a solid answer on Monday’s RAW but that’s not confirmed.
– One idea that was discussed at RAW this past week was to have Cena be the special referee for CM Punk vs. Ryback at Hell In a Cell, if they have to go with Ryback as the challenger.
