John Cena Out 2-3 Weeks After Surgery

John CenaThe WWE was hit with a major injury blow this week. WWE superstar John Cena will be missing some time. WWE.com reports that Cena underwent arm surgery Tuesday that will keep him out of action for 2-3 weeks.

The injury news wasn’t necessarily unexpected, yet I have to admit I was taken back when I read arm surgery. Cena injured his ankle on Sunday at Night of Champions. So when I heard surgery, I just assumed that it was Cena’s ankle. Instead it was Cena’s arm, specifically his elbow.

From WWE.comWWE.com has learned John Cena had surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow today. Dr. Andrews removed several pieces of bone cartilage from Cena’s elbow through a scope. Cena will go home today and immediately begin his rehab in Tampa, Fla.

For some reason a number of reports hit the Internet stating that Cena was out 4-6 weeks. The 2-3 week timetable is a big relief for WWE fans who were worried about missing their favorite star. The Twitter world went nuts with tweets about Cena missing the Hell in a Cell pay per view. With the pay per view being a little under six weeks away, it looks like Cena will be ready for duty on show night.

The WWE will take its biggest hit with house shows. Cena is the top draw for the company when it comes to house shows. They could send Cena to the house shows and have him make an appearance, which is what I am guessing will happen. If Cena can’t travel, the WWE will take a major hit in both attendance and merchandise sales in the interim.

Say what you will about John Cena but the guy is unbelievably reliable. I can’t think of another wrestler other than Ric Flair in the early-mid 1980s that travels as much as Cena does, yet rarely misses any time due to injury. Cena has certainly had some injury woes over the last several years, but in terms of the big picture, the guy (and the WWE) has been pretty lucky.
