John Cena will be out 4-6 months with a torn triceps injury. After looking at the baseball he has where his elbow should be, it’s easy to see why.
Cena announced at WWE Raw on Monday that he will have surgery for the injury.
“I cannot put off my surgery any longer. Tonight I leave the WWE,” said Cena.
Cena will have surgery from Dr. James Andrews this week. A four-to-six week recovery program could have him back by the Royal Rumble.
“John has been dealing with a large left elbow bursitis,” WWE’s Dr. Michael Sampson said, via WWE.com. “We did an MRI which showed a partial triceps tear. Being the warrior that he is, he did not want to have surgery [forcing him to cancel his SummerSlam match].”
Cena praised Daniel Bryan for beating him at SummerSlam. Bryan’s win over Cena was a natural transition since the organization knew Cena would be missing time.
Here’s another look at his elbow. It’s like watching “Coneheads”:
