WWE’s Dr. Michael Sampson recently spoke with about John Cena’s injury. Here is what he had to say about the injury and how it will be repaired…

“John has been dealing with a large left elbow bursitis. 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.”


According to, Cena’s injury may require a shorter physical rehab than was initially feared. Cena’s tricep tear is smaller than what expected; he is still having surgery but he may not be out for quite as long as feared.
