John Cena taken off live events, Raw, and Australia tour

John Cena

United States champion John Cena has been taken off from the weekend live events and the upcoming tour of Australia due to his broken nose.

Cena, who suffered his broken nose at the hands (or knee for that matter) of Seth Rollins last week, has also been taken off from Monday’s Raw in San Jose. Brock Lesnar is scheduled to be on the show. The champ was taken out from all advertising for Raw on August 10 at the Xfinity Arena in Everett, Washington, as well. His next advertised date is the Raw on August 17 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

On the Australian tour, Cena was replaced by Cesaro who will now be taking on Kevin Owens at the three non-televised live events.
