John Cena To Face Mark Henry As Scheduled Tonight; Says Things Were Heated At Accident Scene

WWE has provided an update on John Cena after he was involved in a car crash this morning in Philadelphia. The official website reports he will face Mark Henry as scheduled on tonight’s Raw Supershow and features quotes from Cena. Below is an excerpt from their article:

“We were doing some early morning media for the event tonight in Philadelphia and we got in a car accident,” Cena told WWE.com. “The Civic was totaled, but no one was hurt, believe it or not.”

Although Cena claims to be 100 percent, the Superstar is still set to meet with WWE medical personnel today at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Cena was scheduled to face Mark Henry on tonight’s Raw SuperShow – a match, which according to Cena, will go on as planned.

“I’ve been in plenty of car wrecks before,” the former WWE Champion said. “I’m in one piece and I can still do battle with The World’s Strongest Man tonight.”

According to Cena’s driver, Jules Anderson, the accident occurred around 11:30 a.m., when Cena’s vehicle was traveling eastbound on Rt. 76. The SUV sustained slight damage in the rear, according to Anderson, who further confirmed that no injuries were observable at the scene of the accident. Cena was on a phone meeting at the time of the collision.

The Cenation Commander in Chief’s celebrity may have also helped calm the waters between the other drivers, Anderson said.

“They were arguing, and I stepped in to calm the situation down,” he said. “I told the guys, ‘There’s no need to fight, as long as everybody’s living and breathing.’”

Once Anderson informed the other drivers that his passenger was the former 12-time World Champion, tempers cooled.

“I said, I have the most important client right now, I’ve got to get John Cena down to this next meeting,” he continued. “Immediately, when they saw it was John Cena in the car, they calmed down, started acting like friends, and wanted to meet him.”

    I guess we get to hear the announcers rave and slurp superman all night cause he was in a car crash and still performed

  • Tone

    Yea right!

    some how I doubt two strangers calmed down to meet Cena once they knew he was in the car… instead of fighting over who was to blame for the accident.

    How sad, imagine how greatly booked this match could have been when Henry was the most dominant heel champion in recent memory but sadly this match could be quicker than a Brodus Clay match.
    Heck Randy Orton could take longer getting into the ring than this match and if Cena is at risk then it’s gotta be short :-(

    Could you imagine, THIS CLOSE to Wrestlemania and it ended up being serious? A year long wait for Rock vs Cena

  • Logan_Walker

  • H.M.

    Well, Vince must be so relieved.

  • #1 Awesome One

    What the (bleep)!? Please tell me Henry's not going to destroy Cena. I hope Cena was not hurt around the neck area, which can end careers!

  • Dave the Jobber

    Rock vs. Cena, I can wait. There is only one match worth my interest,(imho). And no, I'm not telling.

  • bryan

    Who was in the other car? Santino?

  • richy

    cena said he's been in lots of wrecks. maybe he needs a new driver.

  • Scotty

    Watch them (announcers) kiss Cena’s anus (is that a better terminology?) and have him bury Mark Henry! Match is coming up, Henry deserves better than this! I hate Super Cena!
