John Cena Actually Injured? Injury on WWE Raw Was Staged, Report Says

February 25, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

John Cena said he was injured on WWE Raw but a report says that it was all part of an act.

The incident happened during a fight between Cena and the Wyatt family. Cena was clutching his knee while speaking with a ringside medic.

He was then taken from the ring on a stretcher.

But the so-called injury to Cena’s knee was not legitimate, according to PWTorch.

“WWE played up the ‘injury’ throughout Raw, then followed up on their new post-game show claiming that Cena ‘felt his knee shift or give out’ during a scrap with the Wyatts,” the blog reported.

“WWE added in their ‘medical update’ that Cena was transported to a local medical facility, where they wanted Cena to undergo and MRI, but Cena refused. WWE said the medical team would continue monitoring Cena’s health.

“WWE went through with a coordinated effort to sell the injury, as WWE had audio of Cena complaining about the ‘injury’ on a single-leg take down by Erick Rowan and the announcers were prepped to focus on the takedown spot during a post-segment replay.”

Cena is slated to fight Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania XXX next month, and PWTorch says that he’ll sell the “injury” throughout the build-up to the big event.
