Former WWE champion John Cena was injured at a non-televised live event in Madison, Wisconsin, on Saturday night.
Cena was wrestling Bray Wyatt when very early in the match Cena was hit in the eye and the injury was considered serious enough for the referee to make the “X” hand sign so medics could check him out. The match was stopped for a bit but then he proceeded to continue the match as planned.
Cena’s eye continued to swell during the match and according to eye witness reports it was completely shut by the time the match was over.
Posting on Twitter, Cena sent an “overdue ‘I love you’” to Nikki Bella who he called a special woman who “had a rough few days dealing with a blind, grumpy me.”
WWE has yet to acknowledge the injury but it should be pretty visible on RAW tonight if Cena appears unless his super-healing powers strike again.
