John Cena

John Cena underwent successful surgery to repair injuries to his right shoulder on Thursday in Birmingham, Alabama. The surgery was conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas at the Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center.

“He had a complete tear of a small portion of the rear rotator cuff tendon, the infraspinatus — toward the top-back of his shoulder — which I repaired,” Dr. Dugas told “Also, there was a large piece of loose tissue in his shoulder that needed to be removed.”

Cena also had deterioration to his AC joint that had to be addressed. The surgery took about one hour to complete. No timetable has been set for his return to the ring. has coverage at this link.
