Update On Cena’s Eye Injury, Wyatt Demoted In The Past For Similar Accident

Posted by Matt Boone June 11, 2014 8 Comments

As previously reported, John Cena suffered bad swelling due to a poke in the eye from Bray Wyatt during their “No Holds Barred” match at the WWE live event this past Saturday night in Madison, Wisconsin. By the time RAW rolled around on Monday night, the swelling had subsided substantially, however it was still noticeable. Regardless, Cena worked a match on the show and was a lot more involved compared to the previous night’s house show in Rochester, Minnesota, where he simply tagged in to score the pin during the finish of a six-man tag-team match where he, along with The Usos, took on The Wyatt Family.

The production crew was informed on Monday night not to shoot any closeup shots of Cena during the match, despite the fact that his eye — which was completely swollen shut during the weekend — was in much better shape.

A little known fact that relates to this story is that Wyatt, back when he was still performing as “Husky Harris,” accidentally poked Cena in the eye during a match, an incident that many believed to have resulted in him being demoted to the developmental system due to the fact that he “didn’t apologize enough” for the mistake.

      “the fact that he “didn’t apologize enough” for the mistake.” Damn! How do you not apologize enough. Thats the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. Poor baby Cena got a boo boo and now Vince wants to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

        Hey can join your wrestling promotion and legitimately poke your top guy in the eye too plweeze?

          Your life must suck if all you do is troll everyones comments. It’s “Please” not “plweeze”. If you’re trying to be intelligent then you’re failing at it.

      Hopefully he did it on purpose this time so WWE will remove him and the Wyatts from this horribly scripted, terribly booked Jern Cena feud. Its probably worth going back to NXT just to get out of that dead end program.

      P.P. Johnny asks, does anyone remember what happened to Mr. Kennedy when he was to rough with big babies Cena & Orton?…..He was gone, see you.
      The Wyatts are a great faction & one of the few reasons to watch the WWE. Just turn it down a notch Bray, you’re not allowed to hurt the cash cow, Super Cena.
