John Cena injury: Did Cena suffer an injury from The Wyatt Family on WWE Raw?

In a recent John Cena injury update it appears the attack Cena sustained via The Wyatt Family on Monday's episode of WWE Raw did not cause legitimate harm like it first appeared. The incident happened after Cena had called out Bray Wyatt to the ring on the show after The Wyatt Family cost Cena a chance to win the Elimination Chamber on Sunday night. Cena was attacked by Bray, Luke Rowan and Erick Harper, which eventually led to Cena being taken away by a stretcher.

According to ProWrestling.Net in their Feb. 25 report, a WWE trainer said during the Raw Backstage Pass, a live "post-show" for the televised program, that John Cena had suffered a knee injury and was taken to a hospital for treatment. They also noted that Cena had refused to have an MRI done. The WWE reported on their own website that there was some "instability and swelling" in Cena's knee and at the time, they hadn't determined the nature of the injury.

Later reports on various pro wrestling websites would indicate that this was in fact an injury just for the show and nothing serious. The PWTorch site reported that WWE played up Cena's injury as part of the incident involving The Wyatt Family, and that "multiple sources" said Cena's injury was a work and not a legit knee injury. They also added that Cena had complained the injury happened during a single-leg takedown via Erick Rowan.

The entire incident on the Feb. 24 episode of WWE Raw was part of the build-up for a match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt. The two competitors are likely to compete against one another as part of the WrestleMania 30 card of matches. The big pay-per-view event takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana on Sunday, April 6, 2014.
