WWE has now pulled United States Champion John Cena from every single live event and TV taping until the final RAW before SummerSlam on August 17th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Cena is still advertised for the SummerSlam pay-per-view as well as RAW and live events after that. As PWMania.com reported, Cena had surgery after suffering a broken nose in the main event of last Monday’s RAW.
WWE has not officially announced Cena won’t be on this coming Monday’s RAW from San Jose but wrote the following teaser for his feud with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins:
Showing undeniable tenacity in his United States Championship defense against Seth Rollins on Raw, The Champ fought through a broken nose to defeat The Architect via submission — a victory that was testament to Cena’s “Never Give Up” mantra.
However, in the wake of Cena’s severe nasal fracture, The Champ’s future remains unclear. When will we see Cena in a WWE ring again? Despite losing that incredible match, did Rollins actually defeat Cena in the long-term, putting the fighting champion on the shelf? If so, how might that inability to compete affect Cena psychologically? Stay tuned as more details on the Cenation leader’s condition emerge.
