WWE Champion John Cena has suffered a serious elbow injury which could need surgery, according to The Wrestling Observer.
Cena suffered the injury during the WWE’s recent tour of Asia, Australia and South Africa and even mentioned the injury during a promo on Raw, in which he said his elbow is the size of a football.
The fact that the injury was mentioned on Raw and that Cena wrestled later in the show convinced many fans that the injury was not a serious one however new reports state that the injury is much more serious than the WWE and Cena are letting on.
Although it is not known exactly how serious the injury is, we do know that Cena has been suffering with arm injuries recently, with an injury to his right arm ruling him out for a couple of months towards the end of 2012 and this arm injury is expected to rule him out for a number of months.
WWE officials made a decision last week to not have Cena wrestle before the SummerSlam pay-per-view this Sunday, as they were seriously concerned Cena would not make it to SummerSlam.
Cena will wrestle Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship this Sunday but will be taking time off after the match to have surgery on the arm, which will keep him out of action for at least two months.
This does not mean that Bryan will win the match, however the odds of Bryan winning have greatly increased due to this news. Even if Bryan does win, he could still walk away empty handed if Randy Orton cashes in his Money in the Bank contract.
