WWE Champion John Cena is set to undergo surgery on his left elbow following his match against Daniel Bryan at Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. The procedure is already scheduled for the early part of next week.
We’re told doctors informed Cena last week his elbow is in bad shape and he is lucky an infection hasn’t developed throughout his arm. Vince McMahon made the call and didn’t give him a chance to work through it.
This is also the reason why Cena was pulled from Sunday’s WWE live event in Oakland, California.
