Randy Orton, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Big Show, Alberto Del and John Cena are scheduled to appear
Keep an eye out for WWE superstar, John Cena. He had surgery in August 2013 on his left elbow after he had injured his elbow in the ring back in July. This type of surgery can take the average, non-wrestling individual up to 6 months to recover.
John Cena’s injury was a separation of the triceps muscle from the tendon. The triceps attach to the bone via the tendon in the upper arm. Normally, when a muscle contracts it shortens pulling on the tendon causing the joint that it crosses to move. Any type of tear between muscle fibers and its tendon will cause the immune system to pump a vital fluid reserve called synovial fluid to the area.
The synovial fluid is a natural lubricant attempting to protect the area. While it may envelope the area with a protective fluid, it causes swelling, pain and reduces joint mobility. This fluid cushion is often drained but keeps reoccurring because it is the body’s defense mechanism.
When the tear occurred, repair was necessary. Reattachment surgery was performed. The surgeon, Dr James Andrews, reconnected John’s triceps muscle to the tendon. This was the second surgery to John’s left elbow. Bone spurs were removed by Dr. Andrews back in 2012.
A major tear as this one resulted from his July injury. John Cena had a regular workout routine. In weight training, muscle fibers are repeatedly torn, which gives rise to the pain before the gain. Scar tissue forms giving muscles that rock hard feel. With multiple sets and repetitions the muscle builds bigger. .
As the muscle bulks it loses its flexibility, so the joint does not go to full extension as it once did. Repeated workouts with heavier weights shorten and the real pull is at the muscle insertion.
Bodybuilders concentrate on the muscle and strength building process. However, wrestlers push weight training to another level using their massive muscle build for strength, agility and quick motion.
Is his recovery sufficient and will re-injury be brought on by excessive weight training?
