John Cena Injury Update

How will John Cena's elbow affect him at SummerSlam?

Among the many surprises of Monday night's Raw was an unexpected look at an injury the WWE Universe hadn’t even known WWE Champion John Cena sustained: His swollen, distended elbow, which, as The Champ commented on in his address to Daniel Bryan, “looks like a football.”

The sight of the Cenation leader’s injured arm certainly raised concerns for WWE medical staff, who taped The Champ’s elbow up before his main-event bout with Randy Orton & Daniel Bryan against The Shield, but questions about Cena’s health now extend beyond Monday night's show. With SummerSlam just two weeks away and Daniel Bryan gaining momentum in his pursuit of Cena's tittle how, if at all, will this injury come back to haunt The Champ as the bout approaches? As a master of submission maneuvers, Bryan certainly has a big target now; a well-placed elbow-hyperextending hold could cut the match short before it ever truly begins and take Cena’s reign with it. Even if Cena refuses to submit, a WWE official may rule Cena unable to continue if his elbow is snapped.

For now, it does not appear that Cena’s title defense is in any danger, nor is his eligibility for SummerSlam. He can and has fought back through worse. As for whether he’s truly at 100 percent when he puts his title on the line? That, at least, is no longer a given.

UPDATE: The Champ has commented on his ailment via Twitter as of Tuesday afternoon

WWE Monday Night RAW Results: 8/5/2013

WWE Monday Night RAW Results: 8/5/2013 Live In Green Bay,WI 

Daniel Bryan had some strong words for John Cena earlier in the evening, yet The Champ certainly didn’t pull any punches when it came time for him to take his turn on the mic, turning Bryan’s entertainer-vs.-wrestler comments on their head and daring the submission master to underestimate the challenge that awaits him at SummerSlam. Cena was soon joined by Randy Orton, who reiterated his long-standing promise to strike when The Champ least expected it … and then The Shield’s entrance music sounded and things began to get truly complicated.

Orton and Cena seemed destined for calamity at a 3-2 disadvantage until Daniel Bryan arrived to even the odds, though physicality never erupted thanks to some quick thinking from Raw GM Brad Maddox. Channeling his inner Teddy Long, Maddox decided to make the best of a bad situation and made an impromptu main event for the evening: Cena, Orton & Bryan vs. The Shield in six-man combat.

John Cena Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan Vs The Shield

Hours after The Shield attempted to attack John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton, the three champions suffered a rare defeat at the hands of the troika of Superstars who banded together to battle them in six-man tag action. Despite the fact that Bryan, Cena and Orton are all rivals in the WWE Title picture, they displayed strong teamwork against the “Hounds of Justice,” beating The Shield into the defensive early in the contest.

The Shield eventually isolated Bryan and tossed him into an unsuspecting Orton (more on that in a bit) before Bryan applied the “Yes!” Lock to Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns quickly stormed the ring to suffer the DQ loss, though Cena and Orton quickly drove them out. The Viper struck with RKOs to both Cena and Bryan and seemed ready to cash in his Money in the Bank contract until the “Hounds of Justice” returned. Orton, thinking better of his cash-in, left the ring altogether while Cena was felled with a spear, and Bryan by a Triple Powerbomb.

In the unmitigated chaos that surrounds the WWE Title right now, it may not necessarily be the best entertainer, the best wrestler, or even The Apex Predator who captures the prize, but whoever is simply left standing when the dust finally clears
