According to a June 8 report from Cageside Seats, WWE superstar John Cena was legitimately injured during a match this weekend against Bray Wyatt. Cena and Wyatt went toe-to-toe at a WWE house show in Madison, Wis., which was not televised. During the match, Cena suffered an eye injury and he was attended to by medical personnel.

Apparently, Wyatt backed Cena into a corner and was smashing him with headbutts. Its not clear if one of the headbutts hit Cena in the eye, or if Wyatt's long, stringy hair is what whipped into the superstar's eye. Either way, Cena was clearly shaken up and was immediately tended to by medical staffers. Cena's eye swelled completely shut.

Shockingly, Cena managed to finish the match. He didn't want to disappoint the WWE fans on hand, who had paid good money to see the superstar in action. Cena certainly deserves props for fighting through adversity to finish out the match. However, it remains to be seen if Cena will be action for tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. His status for next month's Money in the Bank pay-per-view is also unknown.

Cena is scheduled to appear at tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw, but his eye injury may throw a little wrench into the script. The WWE hasn't made any official comment on the matter, and neither has Cena. Luckily, tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw is absolutely stacked, regardless of Cena's status.

WWE fans will find out tonight if The Shield will be getting a new member, and why Seth Rollins turned on his teammates last week to align himself with Evolution. As most WWE fans know by now, Rollins broke up The Shield by smashing Roman Reigns in the back with a steel chair. Rollins is expected to address WWE Universe, to explain his actions.

Besides the drama surrounding the Shield, tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw is expected to feature a divas match, plus appearances from Rusev, Evolution and Bo Dallas. Elsewhere, Daniel Bryan may be making a cameo to discuss the status of his neck injury. WWE Monday Night Raw airs at 8 p.m. on the USA Network.
