WWE star John Cena suffers eye poke in advance of Monday Night Raw

According to a Feb. 3 report from, WWE star John Cena suffered an eye poke in advance of tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw.

Cena, 36, was reportedly poked in the eye by Randy Orton during a recent match at a WWE house show, and it may keep him from making anything more than a quick cameo at the Feb. 3 "Raw" in Omaha, Nebraska.

The legendary WWE wrestler apparently was down to work through the eye injury by wrestling on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw, but WWE officials decided against it.

Cena is arguably the face of the WWE, so they probably made the right move by keeping him off the official fight card.

Tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw will emanate live from the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska, and its the first "Raw" since CM Punk left the WWE.

Cena was being looked at to keep the card stacked due to Punk's absence, but he may not be actually wrestling at the event.

Despite the possible absence of Cena, there will be plenty of good stuff going on at tonight's Monday Night Raw in Omaha.

The event will feature the The New Age Outlaws against former WWE tag-team titleholders Cody Rhodes and Goldust, in a rematch from last week's "Raw" taping.

Randy Orton, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, The Shield, The Wyatt Family and Christian are also slated to appear on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw, to help build momentum for the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event.

Another key storyline to watch tonight is how The Shield will respond to The Wyatt Family costing them spots in the upcoming Elimination Chamber battle.

The Shield and The Wyatt Family are both "heels," but perhaps one group will turn face on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw.

No other matches have been announced for tonight's episode.
