Football News

The WWE was rocked today by the news that John Cena had suffered a long-term injury.

The Superstar suffered a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder and will be forced to undergo surgery this week. The rehab from the operation will see Cena reportedly miss between six-to-nine months.

That period obviously includes WrestleMania 32, which the WWE had hoped to be the biggest 'Mania of all time. However, Cena's injury will certainly put a dent in those plans. Lets find out just what it will change...

Undertaker Retirement Match

The big rumor heading into WrestleMania was that Cena would finally face off against The Undertaker on the Grandest stage of them all in what would be Taker's last ever match in the WWE before riding off into the sunset.

Taker has had a nice swansong in his feuds with Brock Lesnar, and to a lesser extent, Bray Wyatt. But he needs someone big like Cena to retire against, not another Undertaker vs Kane match or to face someone new like Kevin Owens.

What Now?

That's the big question, what is going to happen with the rest of the card now? 

It was always going to be Roman Reigns vs either Brock Lesnar or Triple H in the main event, which left Cena free to either keep himself in the United States title picture, or to have a non-title match against 'Taker.

The U.S Championship will now stay around the waist of Alberto Del Rio for now, with Kalisto being a potential challenger for the belt with Cena out of the picture.

The Roman Reigns Show

If you thought everything was too Roman Reigns based before John Cena's injury, then things are going to get even worse now. Whatever star power the former Shield member has is now going to be sucked dry for the next few months. Vince wants to make Reigns the company's biggest star, well now he has the perfect chance to do it.

Let's just hope that we get more of the ass-kicking Big Dog and less of the Tater Tots/Suffering Succotash promo-ing fool. This is going to be a long few months.
