WWE’s Dr. Michael Sampson spoke to WWE.com after RAW about the extent of John Cena’s injuries.
Sampson revealed that Cena has been dealing with a large left elbow bursitis, and an MRI revealed a partial triceps tear.
“John has been dealing with a large left elbow bursitis,” 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.”
As noted earlier, Cena is expected to be out of action for four to six months.
Following Monday’s RAW, John Cena tweeted:
“I leave. Los Matadores arrive…..I say….even trade. Enjoy @WWEUniverse @TMZ @ESPN @SportsCenter”
