On last week’s episode of WWE Monday Night RAW, John Cena appeared and confronted Vince McMahon, which lead to his involvement in a fatal four-way match later in the broadcast to determine the who would face Brock Lesnar at this Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV.
Cena was unsuccessful in walking out of the fatal four-way match a winner, but according to a report from WWE, he apparently suffered an ankle injury during the match on RAW. It was then said that Cena re-aggravated the injury prior to tonight’s RAW.
Currently is status for Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV is not known.
A report via WWE.com wrote:
“John Cena’s status in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match is in question following an apparent left ankle injury sustained during the main event of this past Monday night’s edition of Raw, WWE.com can now confirm.
In that match, The Cenation Leader faced Finn Bálor, Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre for the right to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at the WWE Royal Rumble event. As seen in the video above, the injury seemingly occurred when McIntyre trapped Cena in the ankle lock submission hold. Cena can then be seen favoring his left ankle while leaving the ring after Raw went off the air.
The injury was exacerbated earlier today as Cena was training his legs at the gym, which has cast doubt on whether he will be able to compete in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match this Sunday.”
