WWE United States Champion John Cena is out with a severe nasal fracture and WWE officially announced that he’ll be replaced on this week’s shows in Australia by Cesaro.
Shawn Michaels, who is replacing Hulk Hogan as the General Manager for shows, ”announced the decision” in a kayfabe post on WWE.com.
The plan is still for Cena to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam but as we noted here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, he’s off all shows until the August 17, 2015 episode of Monday Night Raw. John was at Friday night’s WWE live event in San Diego but did not work, he only fulfilled a meet and greet commitment. We posted photos at this link.
Speaking of Cena’s severe nasal fracture, the tape is online at this link.
