Home » WWE News » Backstage News on Why John Cena Is Returning Early, His Match with Alberto Del Rio, More

- It turns out that John Cena wasn’t hurt as much as doctors originally expected. When doctors examined him, they found only a partial tear triceps. This was known when WWE announced Cena’s original recovery time.

There was talk of Cena still staying out of action until January but with WWE’s thin roster, the decision was made to bring him back. WWE officials knew Cena would be returning 4 or 5 days ago but didn’t decide on the match against Alberto Del Rio until this past weekend.

As of Monday, the plan is for Cena vs. Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Title to be a regular singles match, not a Hell In a Cell match.

    Cena is better than Bryan? Wat.

  • Nick McGinniskin

    Agreed, I don’t see the big issue. Cena gets a title, uses his position to elevate the WHC. Stays out of the WWE title picture so Bryan continues to chase it. It’s a win win.

  • Guest

    Exactly. With Cena gone it makes a perfect opportunity to make new stars. Not just Daniel Bryan. But they just say screw that, we’ll just wait til he comes back… that’s some lazy ass bullshit.

    OMG John Cena is coming back to win the World Heavyweight Championship to change the belt to look more like the WWE belt with all the different panels that show off about the current champion……..heaven forbid that because JC couldn’t change the WWE because the Rock did, so now JC gets to do it. Just lame

    Kofi cant act cause look at his stupid ass scripts hes given. Thats a writers problem, R-Truth is another story tho. Hes a jobber and I think its rightfully deserved. Dont be a yes man if u dont understand what u are saying yes too. Justin & Tyson could be a special tag team like they were projected to be before Kidds injury. So they arent complete bums and my last bone to pick with ur statement is Mark Henry retire? Really? I guess u didnt see him carry Cena THE WHOLE TIME during their feud for the WWE title? If u did and say that retirement speech wasnt on point, then ur judgment of wrestling is terrible. I agree with Mysterio because the underdog role was already hard enough to pull off but even harder when u are frequently getting injured. Last but not least, Cena is better than Bryan. Hint the early return and garbage storyline between Orton vs. Bryan. Peace

    1. Can’t act 2. Can’t act, and if you can’t act and show personality you don’t have a shot 3. bullshit gimmick, 4. give it up already, 5. good jobber, 6. talented but will always be known as Hart’s little buddy, 7. Curt Hawkins really? 8. Henry and Mysterio please retire already, 9. good comic relief, Cody is waiting for his time, Goldust is over. And Danielson was the world champion…

    Face Kofi Kingston, Ryder, Gabriel, Kidd, Hawkins, Santino DO NOT have the abilities to be a TOP guy, WWE is lacking top guys, not mediocre mid carders.

    But Herl Truth, Cody, Goldust, Show, Bryan, and a heel Kofi would have ability to be world champion.

    Thank you, I have been saying that too, it helps the world title and Smackdown gain more viewers.

    It seriously gets sickening to keep hearing this “thin roster” bullshit. The only reason a wrestling promotion would ever possibly have a “Thin roster” problem, is because that promotion failed in doing it’s job to push and promote newer stars.

    Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, Big Show, Zach Ryder, Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd (When he finally gets cleared), Curt Hawkins (who they do nothing with), Mark Henry (whenever he gets back), Rey Mysterio (ditto), Santino Marella, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Bryan Danielson, etc. etc. etc. etc.

    Sorry, but “thin roster”? Bullshit.

  • The Table

    I guess I’m one of the few that actually wants to see Cena beat ADR. The WHC hasn’t been relevant for a while and with Cena carrying it around, that problem would definitely be fixed.

  • Irishrhyno

    “but with WWE’s thin roster” only people to blame are the writers/McMahons on that one

  • Man

    I hope they would allow some blood this year for the Hell in a Cell match.

  • ddfindl

    Oh, pssshh! Regular match?! That sucks.
