WWE is reporting that John Cena will be heading to Birmingham, Alabama on Thursday to undergo shoulder surgery. Cena himself has confirmed the news by posting the following on his official Twitter page:
Rather upside down start to 2016 as tomorrow I will head to Birmingham for shoulder surgery. Life's full of set backs but #nevergiveup— John Cena (@JohnCena) January 7, 2016
Multiple sources are reporting that Cena is suffering from a torn rotator cuff.
Obviously, this surgery means that Cena will not be one of the participants at the upcoming Royal Rumble event this month. Unfortunately, it also means that Cena may also likely miss WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, Texas as well, where it was reported that he would be facing The Undertaker; however, as of this report, there is no word on exactly how long Cena will be out of action.
