John Cena had surgery on Tuesday to remove bone chips from his elbow. Renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews removed several pieces of the wrestler's elbow through a scope. Cena will begin his rehab immediately in Tampa Bay, according to the WWE.
The news comes just two days after the "Night of Champions," the company's most recent PPV. Cena headlined the event, along with CM Punk. The match ended in controversial draw, the two were expected to square off in a rematch at "Hell in a Cell" on Oct. 28.
Cena wrestled again on "Monday Night Raw," just hours before his surgery. He performed, despite hurting his ankle the night before.
The injury could force the WWE to create a new storyline for the next PPV. Punk and Cena are the two biggest stars in the industry. If Cena isn't read to wrestle again in six weeks, Punk will have to find a new opponent.
Daniel Bryan and Sheamus are maybe the biggest wrestlers, other than Punk and Cena, and could be elevated to the main event at "Hell in a Cell."
