One of the big stories coming out of Monday’s RAW was that John Cena appeared to injure his knee during a brawl with The Wyatt Family. The injury appeared legit, with the Wyatt Family backing off Cena when he started grabbing his knee and Cena waving off WWE officials who attempted to check on him.
Several reputable sites (including f4wonline.com) reported that Cena was in fact injured, however, we’ve now learned that John Cena being stretchered out was actually written into the RAW script. The stretcher was ready to go even before Cena went out to the ring.
WWE hyped a “medical update” on John Cena for the RAW Backstage Pass show on the WWE Network, so this was basically done to encourage viewers to check out the WWE Network after RAW.
