After his Last Man Standing Match with Ryback at Extreme Rules Sunday, WWE Champion John Cena went against doctors’ orders and decided not to go to the hospital. On Tuesday, WWE.com spoke with WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson to get an update on The Champ’s condition.
“He’s surprisingly doing well,” Sampson stated. “He does have multiple contusions and is pretty banged up from that match, but he is actually doing better than anticipated.”
As for a recovery timeline, Sampson described it as “day by day,” adding that he does not anticipate any problems that would hinder the process.
