    jaysus, was just reading an article on this
    It would appear Cena’s injury occurred sometime over the last several weeks, although exactly when has not been confirmed.

    never getting time off again.

    On a side note, was looking for tickets to wrestlemania earlier on out of curiosity and it appears all the tickets besides the ones that cost around $10,000 are sold out already?

    I've just seen it said that its a torn rotator cuff. Thats mania done then. Not a hope.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Jeez this last 6 months has been horrible for injuries. I'm not sure what this means for mania.

    Yeah that's a six month job at least. Reigns to have five matches at Mania?


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,152 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    It's Cena, he'll tape up his shoulder and plough on.

    3 hour Ironman match with an hour video package beforehand. Of course that would mean pushing someone else and they wouldn't want to do that.
    So a 4 hour gauntlet match with a 30 min break during it while Taker makes his entrance.


    Seriously though, I would say about how it gives someone else a chance to step up, but sure Cena's been of and all they did with that time is push Reigns even more. Also the fact that others that could step up are injured as well like Cesaro. And as HHH said previously, bringing guys up from NXT to fill the void isn't a good idea because then he needs something for them when Cena or whoever comes back.

    Explains why he was back suddenly and then gone as quick.

    Its a blow to Mania, but one they should have had backup plans for. It's their fault that they don't have anyone as big a name as active on the roster.

    They could always use this injury (and others) to position and push guys like Cesaro, Owens, Finn etc to be viable top level guys.

    Or have the Rock fight Sting.

    Wouldn't be shocked to see them re position Owens so as to have this match unless they already have big plans (like Brock big) for him at Mania as he is one of the few non massive stars I believe they would have a lot of faith in and be willing to push.

    That said the more I think about it I would love if they used this injury as a reason to debut Finn a little earlier on the main roster. We have talked about it previously on boards how Finn and his Demon character could work very well in a feud with say Wyatt so why not Taker? He isn't really going to get too many other chances to face the deadman and if it was actually to be Undertakers last match imagine the rub that would go along with being the guy that retired him. Have taker hand pick him as the best young star in the industry as the man he wants to face in his final match.

    It really is such a pity that Cesaro got injured too, you would imagine that with all the injuries recently (Orton, Bryan, Rollins, Sting, Cena) he would have been a prime candidate for a much deserved push.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    When is Cesaro due back?

    I wonder would they take a gamble with Daniel Bryan (I hope not for his sake) or would they throw AJ and Nakamura in the mix if they can compete by Mania?

    It could be a long term blessing in disguise, it may force their hand to properly push some younger talent.

    Sting is injured as well!


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭nasty_crash


    its actually crazy the injuries over the last 6 months - but it shows the lack of decent writing over the last year or 2 that no viable main eventers are ready!

    We have had 2 months without cena already and its just been all reigns - and reigns reign will continue which really doesnt excite me for the next 6 months! If I was trips and considering using Finn - i would bring him in with Bullet Club - and do invasion style - i know its been done but its proven... at least after the heat of Bullet Club dies down Finn can bring out Demon Ballor to put him over as a huge face!

    Never thought id say it but Cenas loss is bad for viewers

    List of Injured Stars
    John Cena
    Seth Rollins
    Cessaro
    Daniel Bryan
    Randy Orton
    Sting
    Tyson Kidd
    Sin Cara
    Konnor

    5 of which would be considered Main Eventers - madness!!

    Don't want to see the guy injured but I had no interest in Cena vs Taker with the streak not on the line.


  • Registered Users Posts: 119 ✭✭Psychosis


    They're doing the surprise Cena return angle again aren't they.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,478 ✭✭✭✭gnfnrhead


    They fully deserve to be in this position with their over reliance on a select few and part timers in recent years. I'd say this will teach them a lesson but we all know normal business will be resumed as soon as possible.

    As for Wrestlemania, the card doesn't matter. It sells itself.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,504 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I wonder will huge money to be thrown at Goldberg to come in as a big name replacement.


    I think Cena trying to break his own lifting record last month I wonder did he do it then.

    Wow, this is a disaster.

    Again and again their lack of long term plans, 50-50 booking is biting them in the ass.

    They literally have Roman Reigns who isn't over anywhere close to the level he should and needs to be at, some part timers and a roster full of geeks for WM now.

    Well ****ing done you idiots. Reap what you sow.

    I saw this on Twitter last night and assumed it had to be a wind-up. Has there ever been a time when so many important guys were injured or unavailable?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,820 ✭✭✭grames_bond


    Every champion that came out of WrestleMania 31 is injured

    Goldberg, while may be a draw, he hasnt wrestled in 12 years properly to my knowledge and I cant imagine him being in great in-ring shape.

    Id be against him in a prominent position.

    Let's be honest when was the last time Vince cared about what happened inside the ring:mad:

    WM is all about name value not about ring talent.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,974 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    They knew this was coming and that's why they started Slater's push on Monday. It has to be!


  • Registered Users Posts: 734 ✭✭✭aaaaaaaahhhhhh


    Rock / Taker Mania


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar


    I dont care what he's injured i still expect Cena to be the 30th entrant in the Rumble and go on to be King at WM

    #Nevergiveup

    I would imagine he wouldn't need long to get in shape to do a spear, jackhammer, and pin, to be fair, thats all the crowd want from him

    Edit: Ring shape that is, he still looks in good shape physically

    I believe Goldberg wrestled as recently as a few months ago for some charity gig or something along those lines.
