John Cena announced on last night’s episode of WWE RAW that his swollen elbow is the results of a torn triceps. Cena will undergo surgery very soon, which will keep him out of action for 4-6 months.
“John has been dealing with a large left elbow bursitis,” Dr. Michael Sampson told WWE.com. “We did an MRI which showed a partial triceps tear. Being the warrior that he is, he did not want to have surgery [forcing him to cancel his SummerSlam match].”
“After SummerSlam, John agreed with us to have surgery this week with WWE’s Dr. James Andrews. He will begin physical therapy after that.”
