John Cena has surgery to fix torn tricep

On Monday Night Raw this week, WWE Superstar John Cena announced to the world that he would be out of action for at least 4-6 months with a torn tricep that he suffered at a live event back in July. During the broadcast, he showed off a nasty lump on his elbow that he attributed to fluid buildup due to the tear.

According to multiple sources, including the wrestler’s Twitter account, Cena has completed the surgery necessary to correct the tear and is back on the road to recovery.

Cena was operated on by renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

Andrews has basically worked on anybody who is anybody in sports. Dr. Andrews has worked with everyone from Michael Jordan to Brett Favre.

Most recently, Dr. Andrews is responsible for the recovery of the surgically repaired knee of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Cena, along with a plethora of other wrestlers like Triple H, Edge, and many others, have continued to work through their injuries for long periods of time; some more serious than others.

Sometimes, that can play to their advantage, but more often than not, it can cause the athlete to sustain an even more serious injury.

I hope now that Cena has the surgical aspect out of the way, he can do something that he hasn’t had a chance to do in the last 2 years; sit back, relax, and recuperate.
