As we had noted, John Cena announced on Twitter las evening that he is set to undergo shoulder surgery today in Birmingham, Alabama. As per reports, he is suffering from a torn rotator cuff and is most likely to miss this year’s Royal Rumble Live Stream.
While it was not confirmed in any way, the reports were for him to face The Undertaker at this year’s Mania. This would be the first Wrestlemania without Cena wrestling on the show, since he made his Wrestlemania debut back in 2004.Rather upside down start to 2016 as tomorrow I will head to Birmingham for shoulder surgery.

His last match came on December 30th at a WWE live event against United States Champion Alberto Del Rio. He did not appear on RAW but did appear on SmackDown but did not wrestle.
