John Cena was part of a fatal four-way match on last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw and as we noted before, Cena chose to put over Balor in the bout by taking the pin.

However, the Cenation Leader was seen limping in the videos taken after the show went off air, raising suspicion that he might have suffered an injury during the bout.

Now WWE is reporting that Cena reaggravated this injury while training yesterday and now his status for the upcoming Royal Rumble event is in question:

“The injury was exacerbated earlier today as Cena was training his legs at the gym, which has cast doubt on whether he will be able to compete in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match this Sunday.”

What’s interesting to note here is that the 16-time world champion was originally expected to have a short stint with the company. It was speculated that he will miss Royal Rumble because of his movie commitments.

However, John then announced his entry into the 30 men battle royal, making people think that the company changed their plans in light of the recent low ratings.

Though with the reports of his injury, the big question is if the angle is legit or if WWE just tried to boost the ticket sales of the upcoming PPV with Cena’s name while knowing that he won’t be able to compete at the show.
