As of speculation Cena would be undergoing a rotator cuff surgery and if this is the case then he should be out of action for 6 to 9 months. In the absence of Cena, WWE should take a chance to push rising stars like Neville, Samy Zayn, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens from NXT.
Though it is difficult to say how much WWE can recover from this one given that Wrestlemania season is all set to kick off and for the first time in 12 years, The Franchise will miss the spectacular event where he was supposed to face the Undertaker or Roman Reigns at the main event. WWE is already dealing with major superstars’ injuries like Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Cesaro, Seth Rollins etc.
