WWE Posts Update On John Cena’s Knee Injury From RAW

The following is from WWE.com:

John Cena suffers knee injury at the hands of The Wyatt Family

GREEN BAY, Wisc. — John Cena’s knee was left battered and bruised after a vicious attack on Raw at the hands of all three members of The Wyatt Family. Following the brutal beatdown, the 14-time World Champion was taken to the locker room to be evaluated by WWE trainers.

At this time, WWE medical staff is unsure of the exact nature of the injury. After initial examination, they felt some instability and swelling in Cena’s knee, and recommended that the Cenation leader get an MRI. Initially, Cena refused further treatment.

On Raw Backstage Pass on WWE Network, ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann explained that John Cena felt something shift or give in his knee during the confrontation. While he refused treatment at first, Cena was transported to a local medical facility for more evaluation. Cena is still refusing to have an MRI done on his knee.

Bray Wyatt, pleased with the carnage caused by his monstrous family, ominously tweeted later in the night, “The golden calf has been sent out to pasture …Can you still see him?”

      “The golden calf has been sent out to pasture…Can you still see him?” Bray is great lol.

      It takes the average person a month to recover from a dislocated knee cap. If Cena does have this injury hopefully he can overcome the odds and make it to WrestleMania! This years Mania looks good even with CM Punk out but it will definitely falter with Super Cena out.

      • Josh Foley

        wrestlemania wont falter if cena isnt on the card, wrestlemania would be better because he would be replaced by somebody who has more talent

        • ROOM_ON_FIRE

          No, this is bad. Because this could take a potentially huge win away from Bray Wyatt.

            pppfffttttt lmfao!!!! OMG HHAHAAHAHAHAHAA….
            you are kidding right?
            John Cena?
            Lay down?
            Put somebody over?
            At WrestleMania???
            XD XD XD XD XD XD

            I’m sorry, that is just too rich

      • BOOCH

        I think its even better with CM Punk out. And I’m sure Cena will make it to Mania. Bray needs this match to push him even farther.


      If he tore any ligaments then we won’t be seeing him until later this year.

      • Adam-Michael

        fingers crossed


      I hope he makes it to WRESTLEMANIA and in all seriousness i hope this injury isnt as severe !!

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      If he’s refusing to do so, it seems he really wants to work Mania. I mean to be honest I want him at Mania. Even if Wyatt loses to him not many will be able to say they main evented versus the face.

    • Daniel Bryan

      I hope Cena makes it to Mania. The dude busts his ass for the WWE and deserves to be on the card, I don’t care what anyone says.

      Also Bray is $$$$, that tweet is great lol

      • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

        I wish your fans were like you, Daniel Bryan :)

        Agreed. I hope he’s there too. Like him or not, he adds to the star power and is a draw for a lot of WWE fans. WMXXX will be weaker without him.

    • Progressed_Now

      I am now officially a Wyatt family fan!!!

    • Reality

      Why does he refuse the MRI? Makes no sense!

      • Adam-Michael

        He kicks out at 2

    • AVPredator4985

      I don’t know why, but a little part of me thinks this is a kayfabe injury. Even though I’m fairly certain it’s legitimate.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Looked pretty legit. Though I suppose it could be more of WWE working a legit angle that is actually a work… Still, I doubt it. Think it’s legit. They improvised well enough, though. I give credit to all of them to making the best of the situation. Hope Rowan doesn’t get any heat over this. Wyatt’s are too hot right now.

    • Whatsupbb415

      LOL so I know everyone is going to want Bray vs Roman at mania…
      But who knows maybe we’ll see Bray vs Hogan!

      • 9 year old boy

        No way man after that crappy match they had on RAW and how the crowd was dead quiet for it. I’d rather have Wyatts vs Shield rematch.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Welp, they got me. Turns out it’s a work. He’s not really injured.

    • powerslam88

      Other sites are saying it’s a work. Doesn’t surprise me with this whole “refusing treatment” nonsense.

    • eight_track

      Sounds like a work but I haven’t watched the show yet, too busy watching PPVs from 2000 on the network ^_^

    • Adam-Michael

      YES. YES. YES. YES. YES!!! – my initial reaction…… then I thought, hold on… Isn’t this classic Cena?… he has to go in as the “underdog” and “overcome the odds” so I sadly now think this is all a bullsh*t story to make Cena look strong at Mania and beat Wyatt in classic Cena fashion -_-

    • Callum

      HEAL UP CENA….no returning early

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      To all those really happy at the prospect of Cena not being on the WMXXX card, consider the following scenario:

      – John Cena is confirmed out of WMXXX – majority of IWC rejoice
      – WMXXX takes place
      – WMXXX, for whatever the reason, does not draw as many buys as WWE expected (for whatever reasons – that is not important in this scenario)
      – WWE staffers pin the lower number on the fact that John Cena was not part of the show
      – Cena comes back and is pushed harder than ever because WWE thinks he’s the biggest draw

      Hate on, haters. Cena being part of WMXXX is the best thing long-term, because if that number comes in lower than last year, he’s going to be pushed even harder when he gets back.

    • Hershey Maxwell Barber

      Such a work. No way in hell is Cena missing WM 30.

    • raVen

      wwe made a change sunday night. they saw the pure gold on shield/wyatts so they will continue to mania and cena will still be there and still make his $$$.
