Documenting John Cena’s Insane Recovery Time Throughout His Career



Source

Quote:
Yesterday, John Cena announced his return date after undergoing surgery for a torn rotator cuff five months ago. On May 30th, Cena will return to the ring and mark his latest swift recovery from a major surgery. Among WWE fans, Cena is known for always beating the odds, something that carries over out of the ring as well. Surgery joins the likes of Bray Wyatt, Rusev and marriage in the list of obstacles that Cena has overcome.

Torn Pectoral Muscle : 3 months 25 days.

October 1st 2007. John Cena suffers the first major injury of his career, wrestling against Mr. Kennedy on Raw, Cena completely tears his pectoral muscle. Cena was ruled out of action for 6 months to a year and was expected to miss WrestleMania. However, as would become the status quo of Cena’s career, Cena was able to overcome the odds and returned January 27th 2008 at the Royal Rumble, eliminating Triple H and earning a WWE title shot at WrestleMania.

Herniated Disk : 2 months 28 days

August 25th 2008. John Cena was unable to battle through his neck injury after a physical SummerSlam matchup against Dave Batista and underwent surgery on a herniated disk in his neck. Originally thought to be out of action for a year, Cena was able to avoid spinal fusion surgery and his new time table was 3-4 months. Cena was once again unable to stay down for a three count and returned November 23 2008, defeating Chris Jericho for the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series.

Elbow : 60 days

September 18th 2012. After staying relatively injury free for the last four years, Cena began dealing with elbow issues in mid 2012. After attempting to work through the injury, Cena & WWE decided to scope out Cena’s elbow with a return anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Cena continued to appear on Raw during this time to update his recovery but did not return to action until two months later at Survivor Series (November 18 2012) where he battled CM Punk & Ryback in the main event. It is unknown if Cena could have returned to action sooner or if the WWE decided to hold Cena’s return match for Survivor Series.



Torn Triceps : 2 months 8 days

August 19th 2013. It was no secret that John Cena was headed for triceps surgery in the summer of 2013, as Cena had a visible lump in his arm the size of a baseball. Cena was once again able to showcase his tag line “Never Give Up” as he worked through the injury throughout the build up to his SummerSlam match against Daniel Bryan and even wrestler an intense match against Bryan at the event as well. The night after, Cena announced that he would be out of action for the next 4-6 months but in typical Cena fashion, he was able to overcome these odds and slice the recovery time in half. Little over a month later, return promos for Cena began airing on Raw announcing that he would be making his return against Alberto Del Rio at Hell in a Cell on October 27th 2013. At Hell in a Cell, Cena returned and defeated Del Rio to capture the World Heavyweight Championship.

Torn Rotator Cuff – 4 months 23 days

January 7th 2016. John Cena’s return from his 2016 hiatus would be short lived, as the WWE announced that Cena had torn his rotator cuff and would be out of action for 7-9 months. Cena had no plans to wait 7-9 months and began teasing a return for WrestleMania (April 3rd) shortly after his surgery. Although Cena made true on his promise and made a breif cameo appearance at WrestleMania to save former nemesis The Rock, he was still not fully cleared for action. All news on a Cena return was quiet for a few weeks after, until yesterday Cena announced that he would make his long awaited return to full time in ring action on May 30th. Known as a workhorse of the WWE, it is unknown what opponent or what injury it will take to fully keep Cena down for the 3 count.

Re: Documenting John Cena’s Insane Recovery Time Throughout His Career

But how many of his injuries did the WWE report as being way worse than they really were? Saying he'd be out for months when in reality he be out for weeks.

Hopefully years of quick turnarounds won't affect his body too bad over the coming years...but I'm pretty sure it will.

That's it. Cesaro had same injury as cena and he was supposed to be out 4-6 months http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/6454...o-section-more

Edge came back quicker from same injury as cena as well

Whatever Cena is doing to recover so fast you can guarantee if he is returning way too early not fully healed he is going to endup suffering later in life.



Thanks to Drago & Fringe for their generosity
