John Cena to Miss 2 to 3 Weeks Due to Surgery

WWE's top star, John Cena, will miss 2 to 3 weeks of action due to recent elbow surgery.  The WWE website reported Cena underwent the surgery just today with Dr. James Andrews.  They noted that it was a success and helped remove pieces of bone chip cartilege from Cena's elbow which had been limiting his arm's motion.

Dr. Andrews said of the surgery:

"He had begun to lose motion in his arm, and it had been locking up.  I performed an orthoscopic procedure on his elbow and took out a bunch of spurs. Everything went really well. 

Cena’s rehab will start on Monday with trying to improve his range of motion and getting the swelling down."

The timetable that WWE.com gives for Cena's return is 2-3 weeks right now, following his rehab.  The WWE Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View is scheduled for October 28th at Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA.  Based on last night's episode of Raw it appeared that Cena would continue his feud with CM Punk over the WWE Championship heading into the PPV.  Cena has plenty of time to appear live via satellite and still make his return.  To keep things going, he's also been tweeting to call out CM Punk for the rematch.

"Oh.. And @CMPunk u TIED a guy with a blown up ankle, and a shattered arm ... what say when i get healthy ...

We show the @wwe who #thechamp really is? And why would u even try and borrow @therock stuff, stick with #hitman n #macho #dontangerdwayne"

Wishing John Cena a speedy recovery back to the ring for his next round with Punk.
