John Cena announced that he would be taking time off last night on Monday Night RAW to heal from his several injuries.
“Tonight I leave the WWE,” said Cena, as fans erupted in “Yes” chants. Cena smiled, and said that he loved them and he was going to miss all of this, meaning the chants against him.
Cena’s elbow has ballooned due to fluid from a torn triceps and he revealed that WWE doctors advised him to go home before SummerSlam and cancel the WWE title match.
The former WWE champion has been going non-stop since returning from a torn pectoral muscle in January 2008. He suffered the injury just four months before and was expected to be out for seven months but returned as a surprise final entrant in the Royal Rumble.
