John Cena is reportedly dealing with several injuries besides the elbow that was operated on and the busted ankle from Night of Champions. Regarding the elbow injury that was operated on yesterday, it was not because of something that happened at Sunday’s pay-per-view.
The elbow issue was something that was known before but F4Wonline.com reports that Cena had an MRI on the elbow while at RAW on Monday and nobody expected it to be something that needed surgery. Cena got word on Tuesday that he needed surgery on the elbow. The feeling was that he needed to rest several injuries and that they should get the surgery done while they have several weeks in between pay-per-views.
The goal is for Cena to return in time for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view to face WWE Champion CM Punk. Cena won’t be wrestling at live events but he will still have a presence on RAW until he recovers.
