Backstage News On John Cena Returning to Action Earlier Than Expected

On Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, Vickie Guerrero made the bombshell announcement that John Cena will be returning to action against Alberto Del Rio at Hell in a Cell, 3 months earlier than he was advertised to return.

For fans wondering how Cena was able to get medically cleared for the match, it turns out that WWE once again overstated how injured Cena really was. When Cena was first examined by doctors back in August, they found only a partial tear triceps. The company has done this before as a way of surprising fans and showing that their superstars train extra hard to return sooner than the average person would.

Even with Cena being medically cleared to wrestle this month, there had still been talk of keeping him on the sidelines for a few more weeks to ensure he was truly 100%. Cena was cleared to return within the past week and the decision for him to wrestle Alberto Del Rio in just over 2 weeks was made over the weekend.

As noted earlier, Cena vs. Del Rio will be a traditional singles match and Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan will be the only match held inside Hell in a Cell.
