John Cena had surgery to have bone chips removed from his elbow on Tuesday, reports WWE.com. The 10-time WWE Champion had multiple fragments of cartilage taken out of his elbow with a scope by renowned surgeon James Andrews.
John Cena had surgery today to remove bone fragments from his elbow. The 10-time WWE Champion is expected to return to the ring in two to three weeks.
Cena is expected to be out of action for two or three weeks. The Cenation Leader's condition will be re-evaluated by Thursday, with updates expected at that time.
Cena's absence is uncommon, with the Superstar taking little time off in his run, now 10 years long, in World Wrestling Entertainment. Bleach Report believes the timing of the surgery was well thought out, with no major events in the near future, and that Cena could use some time to recuperate and come back fresh.
"Punk is red hot and can carry the product for at least the time being," writes Bleach Report. "Cena now has the time off he so desperately needs."
Unlike the official WWE website, Bleach Report is stating that the recovery could take four to six weeks, though they do cite WWE.com as their source. If the Bleach Report numbers are correct, Cena could wind up missing out on the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Oct. 28.
At last word, WWE officials are reportedly still planning to have John Cena challenge WWE Champion CM Punk for another epic bout at Hell in a Cell, according to NoDQ. Since the surgery is minor, and the pay-per-view is more than four weeks away -- longer than the official WWE estimated recovery time -- Cena fans may not have to miss out on a rematch with Punk inside an enclosed steel cage.
