John Cena and Adam Rose reportedly suffered minor injuries in their matches at WWE's live event in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday night.
Cena was facing main rival Bray Wyatt at the event and as the match started Bray was head-butting Cena in the corner and the former World Champion seemed to have been either hit in the eye with Bray's hair or poked in the eye because he signalled to the referee that he was injured. The referee then made the "X" signal to the back for the trainers to come out and check on Cena then who managed to finish the match with his eye closed.
Cena wasn't the only one injured as Adam Rose, only months after making his debut on Raw, was injured in his match with Heath Slater at the same event. The "Exotic Express" leader suffered a deep cut above his eye and had to have the trainers come out to clean up the blood and help the referee patch him up so he could continue the match.
These are the latest in a long line of superstars to be injured at untelevised events with Roman Reigns suffering a shocking eye injury at last months live event in England as he fought Randy Orton.
This eye injury was then worked into the WWE script and added fuel to the already burning fire of a rivalry between The Shield and Evolution. He also managed to continue his match despite the injury even though the bruising around the eye made it look a lot worse than it probably was.
Rose and Slater don't have a rivalry right now so it is unlikely this could be turned into a positive for Raw or Smackdown, but after the amount of blood that he lost and how deep the cut looked it would be hard for WWE to cover up the fact that he has suffered an injury.
As for John, ever the fighter, he will be back on Raw tonight come hell or high water and even though he is still in this feud with Bray it's unlikely his eye injury will still be bothering him so it may just be forgotten all together.
Even though WWE could play both these injuries to their advantage it seems the company need to protect their superstars a lot more during house shows, accidents are becoming more and more common and next time it could be a lot more serious.
