John Cena pulled from more live events following broken nose

Published 1 Comments

It was a moment that WWE fans aren't used to seeing these days as John Cena ended Monday's episode of RAW covered in blood.

Cena took a knee to the face during his United States Championship defense with Seth Rollins and suffered a broken nose.

How to keep Cena out

Despite the injury, the US Champion continued with the match and saw RAW end with a fitting conclusion.

As the match wore on however, the damage to Cena's face became more and more apparent as his nose began to swell uncontrollably.

By the time RAW finished, his nose was twice the size it normally is and a doctor was trying frantically to give him some medical attention.

Following the injury, Cena was - as expected pulled from some of the WWE's live shows in order for him to heal.

However it now appears that he will be pulled from more shows than first expected.

Cena was pulled from WWE's live show in San Diego on Friday but he has now been pulled from shows on both Saturday and Sunday.

Whilst having the weekend off, Cena has also been pulled from Monday's episode of RAW and will now be unable to continue his feud with the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Their feud appears to be leading to a Champion vs Champion match at Summer Slam and the two have already produced some spectacular matches in the last 12 months.

Big night in Brooklyn

Summer Slam comes to Brooklyn, New York this year and the WWE have certainly make a statement that they are trying to make the show as big as possible.

Bringing the Undertaker in for a rare non- WrestleMania appearance, the Phenom will once again face off with Brock Lesnar - a man he has had several memorable matches with in WWE.

From one of the most brutal Hell in a Cell matches ever at No Mercy in 2002, to the match that saw Lesnar end Undertaker's WrestleMania unbeaten streak last year, the two are now set for another huge clash.
