Pro Wrestling Since 1997


What did McMahon say last Tuesday in a closed doors Smackdown agent meeting about Cena’s injury?‏

filed to GERWECK.NET:


This week on MLW Radio, available right now on, Court Bauer joined Konnan and Mister Saint Laurent to discuss the friction between Vince McMahon and John Cena stemming from Cena’s surgery last week in Birmingham, AL:

“John Cena has this procedure done in Birmingham, AL. puts out there that he’ll be down for only two weeks and that life will go on. It was basically like removal of fragments and bone spurs in his arm or his elbow, which if you follow sports, baseball players have it done all the time, usually in the office season. NFL guys will have it done here or there. It’s a pretty easy deal. So, I don’t think anyone was thinking it was going to be this long stretched out thing, but then the reports came out about how long John Cena was going to be down for. John Cena then took to Twitter saying that got the story wrong and that he’s going to be out for a full six [weeks] and he just buried and all the guys over there. The story obviously then switched to ‘now he’s out six weeks.'”

“From what I know, Vince McMahon himself, in the agent meeting, the producers meeting, told everyone straight up the dude is out for just two weeks, ‘we dodged a bullet and that he’s very much in the mix moving forward.’ That was Tuesday, he said that. Then Cena had very different things to say and I understand did talk to James Andrews [Cena’s doctor], who WWE and Cena did give them the blessing to talk to. That’s standard protocol at WWE. They always try to interview the doctor, get insight so they can have the news. Sometimes it’s a kayfabe site and sometimes it’s a legit news site. Sometimes it’s a TMZ site, but that’s the story. They interviewed him and Dr. James Andrews did say he’d be out just two weeks.”

“So you have to wonder if Vince and the doctor said it and Cena is saying six weeks, there is an interesting issue there. Is it that John Cena wanted the full six weeks out? Was John Cena then told something after Tuesdays that conflicted with this? But it was very quickly thereafter they reported it on the website that this was not in fact the situation. The reality of it is, John Cena is coming off a divorce, he’s beaten up. He’s got a bad neck, a bad hip, bad everything. He’s closing in on 36. The wear and tear of a guy like that, that goes, goes, goes and is a company man, you gotta think about.”

“And if you’re Vince McMahon, you look at the clock, you look at the calendar and you think, is it time to build the next John Cena?”

    Vince, its time to build the next John Cena….bring on RYBACK!!!!!! (I swear I’ll stop watching if that happens)

    but ryback is the new goldberg, make him win the champion and bring back russo so we will have ryback vs rocky :) and wrestlemania’s big match ryback vs goldberg πŸ˜€

    Time to build a new Cena? They still haven’t been able to get over the current “Cena”. Like most anti-Cena fans, I don’t hate John Cena. I hate the character. Can’t say I blame him for taking off 6 weeks though. Being on the road and having the pressure of being the poster-boy for a company all while he is going through a divorce can’t be easy.

    I hope he gets everything figured out and hopefully after this big change in his life it, we’ll get a change in his character. Hopefully….

  5. Scott says:

    I think he just needs to cool his jets, and take time off. Probably why he said 6 instead of 2.

  6. Fisha695 says:

    My theory on this is the WWE wanted to say the truth which is he’ll be back in about 3 weeks, however Cena wanted them to say 6 weeks so that when he returns earlier it’ll make him look “stronger”.

    As far as Ryback, does he remind anybody else of Bryan Clark from the KroniK days?

  7. DBRude says:

    I never considered that Cena had all of those injuries; he never SEEMS hurt, but I should have known. The way he works, you know? He’s a machine, like me! :p I hope he gets whatever times off he needs. He’s earned a FEW early retirements, IMO!

  8. Nic says:

    Havent been able to get the current Cena over? Do you live on the same planet as the rest of us ryderman? With exception of rock and austin he’s the biggest star the industry has produced aince Hogan of the late 80’s… He has drawn bigger than HBK, Triple H, Bret Hart an Undertaker and gets a bigger reaction (good or bad) than anyone ive lived to see wrestle. No-one else could have gotten the reception Cena got at One Night Stand vs RVD… Lets get it clear, Cena and rvd sold ppv buys for that event. Not ECW hardcore action. Cena is as over as anyone will ever be in this industry.

    Maybe it’s time to build an entire roster instead.
