During Friday’s Street Fight main event at the WWE live event in Hampton, Virgina, John Cena was going at it with Kevin Owens when Cena went down, the match stopped and the referee threw up the “X” symbol.
Our correspondent Sherrod Jones noted that it appeared Cena was having an issue with his nose or neck, likely the nose that was recently busted by Seth Rollins. WWE trainers came down to check on Cena but he wrestled for another 6 minutes or so, and even went through a table, to win the match. A handful of WWE officials also came out with the trainers and they checked on Cena’s nose and neck area for around 5 minutes.
It was noted by our correspondent that it wasn’t clear if Cena suffered a legitimate injury but he really seemed to be hurting after the match as he went straight towards the backstage area, stopping to point back at the crowd. We’ve reached out to WWE for comment and will keep you updated with any information that becomes available but it could have been an angle to play off the recent nose injury.
