“Oh. Shit.” – the collective WWE Universe upon hearing this terrible news…
It seems that WWE superstar John Cena may be sidelined come Wrestlemania XXXII on April 2nd to undergo some sudden shoulder surgery, as revealed by the “You can’t see me!” man himself.
Well-known wrestling rumor site PWInsider is reporting that John Cena may have sustained a torn rotator cuff, which, given the usual surgery prognosis, would rule out any speculation of a Cena vs. Undertaker match on the Wrestlemania card, and well beyond that.
Truly a loss for the WWE faithful if the 38-year-old, 15x World Heavyweight Champion is indeed ruled out of wrestling’s most spectacular annual PPV.
On the up (and down) side, UPROXX notes:
Of course, Cena has come back from injury before, once returning months early from a torn pectoral muscle to win the Royal Rumble. There’s also the possibility that the injury is not as severe as a tear and could be slightly more minor (though Cena’s Twitter sounds disconcerting). Be that as it may, the WWE is looking at trying to get 100,000 people into an arena with no Cena, Orton or Rollins, among other names.
Prayers for you tonight, Cena. We’re hoping it’s not as bad as it seems.
