John Cena Injured, Will he face Ryback? & The Future
WWE.com Posted an article today stating the following:
"WWE.com has learned that WWE Champion John Cena sustained an injury during WWE's European tour. The WWE Champion injured his right Achilles tendon while battling Ryback.
The injury raises questions about the scheduled match between Cena and Ryback at Extreme Rules on May 19. What lies ahead for the Cenation leader? Does this put Ryback one step closer to capturing the WWE Title? There are no details yet about Cena's expected recovery time.

If this is the case then I feel very sorry for WWE. They havent had the best of luck with injuries over the past month or so with Triple H, Brock Lesnar,CM Punk and The Rock all getting injured or having some type of injury following Wrestlemania 29. Now WWE champion John Cena has hurt his Achilles Tendon. I hope that John Cena does not have as serious a injured as rumoured and that he is able to carry on and continue to be WWE champion.
Accordingly to www.Patient.co.uk
"Depending on the type of work, some people need several weeks off work after an Achilles tendon rupture, and the time taken to return to sport is between 4 and 12 months"
Obviously at this point we do not know how bad John Cena Injury is or whether it is a rupture or not or whether this is a less serious injury however this does beg a very interesting question if John Cena can get through he match at extreme rules and then has to take 4 months off for example who do you out in his place to face Ryback?
WWE would be losing their biggest merchandise seller and their biggest babyface too,. This would be an incredibly difficult situation for WWE. These are the options as I see them right now
I mentioned Punk in my last blog and whether The Sheild would be a good fit for him. Now due to circumstances would WWE ask Punk to come back as a Babyface and Face Ryback and carry on the program? CM Punk is a big merchandise seller and is just behind Cena in that regard. So WWE doing this would make sense - however you wouldn't want to rush punk back to action too soon if he is not ready.
Randy Orton could be the man to really help WWE out of a difficult situation. Orton has not been used much in title matches in the last few months and has been kept away from the Main event title scenes. Alot of people would say that this is due to his wellness violations, but whatever the case Orton is a great Wrestler, A Great Hand and his wrestling is crisp and impeccable. If WWE wants someone who is ready to go and wants to get back to the top of his game don't be surprised to see Orton vs Ryback.
Sheamus is the safe and really the most obvious choice for me. Sheamus is already a babyface and already has momentum. If you have Sheamus beat Mark Henry at Extreme Rules then have him go on to face Ryback. Sheamus and Ryback i think could have a good program with each other and I think now Sheamus has had a good few years of main event experience and Sheamus would be able to lead Ryback to some good matches. Sheamus also has that experience of working long programs with wrestlers like the Big Show so Sheamus would know how to keep the matches interesting and enging for the WWE Universe.
