WWE’s website has a new article up today looking at John Cena’s speech following the win over Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules. They speculate that Lesnar’s Kimura Lock submission may put Cena out of action for some time but tease repercussions from John Laurinaitis and say doctors are running tests on Cena before tonight’s show. Here’s part of what they wrote:
“There could also be repercussions from the fallout. Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and General Manager of Raw and SmackDown John Laurinaitis was forced to bend to all of Brock Lesnar’s demands in order to get the contract signed for Sunday’s match. That included declaring Lesnar the “new face of WWE” – a face that was surprisingly defeated at Extreme Rules. With an angry Lesnar presumably on his way to Raw SuperShow (Starring Brock Lesnar, per the Superstar mandates?), Laurinaitis may be looking to punish the Superstar who threw a wrench in his plans.
Or were John Cena’s words simply that – words? Was his post-match statement just a matter of general recovery? Both Superstars were the worse for wear after the final bell Sunday night, especially Cena. The Cenation leader may need time to recover from the incomparable beating he received at the hands of Lesnar in order to get back in the right frame of mind for competition.
Doctors are running tests on Cena today ahead of Raw SuperShow from Dayton, where both Cena and Lesnar will be in attendance. What is in store for these Superstars? Tune in tonight at 9/8 CT on USA Network to find out!”
