WWE: Welp. We’ve all seen the grapefruit-sized ball where John Cena‘s elbow is usually located. And many speculated that his injury was worse than he was letting on and that, because if it, he’d drop the title to Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam. Which he did. Now comes the news that Cena will be out for four to six months to heal his torn triceps.
He announced the news on RAW tonight, and WWE.com also did up a little piece on it. “I cannot put off my surgery any longer. Tonight I leave the WWE,” said Cena.
Granted, Cena, being Cena, will probably be back a lot sooner than we anticipate, but this will be the first lengthy Cena-less stretch the WWE has seen in a long time.
