– WWE has announced that John Cena has suffered an injury and may not be part of the Royal Rumble match as planned. The company announced the news on WWE.com on Monday afternoon, noting that the injury is to Cena’s ankle and was suffered during the main event of last week’s Raw. The story is that McIntyre injured Cena in his ankle lock. Cena was favoring the ankle after the spot.
The WWE.com article adds that “The injury was exacerbated earlier today as Cena was training his legs at the gym.” His status for the Rumble is said to be “questionable.”
Of course, this could all be a work. It is worth noting that per PWInsider, sources backstage say Cena is not at tonight’s Raw taping.
