Found May 23, 2013 on Midwest Sports Fans:
John Cena missed Raw on Monday in order to sell the injuries he received at Extreme Rules but he will surely be back this coming Monday to accept Ryback’s challenge for the Payback pay-per-view in June. It is a rare occasion for Cena to miss an episode of Raw as he is the poster boy for the WWE and also the favorite of many in the live crowd. It was odd for him and CM Punk to both be absent from Raw on Monday, but Triple H was there to add some star power to the show. It should be noted that both the WWE Champion and World Heavyweight Champion were absent from Raw on Monday. Cena was selling his injuries while Dolph Ziggler has to remain at home thanks to Jack Swagger concussing him with a kick to the head. To stick with the theme of the post I found an example of a much more exciting and surprising return from Cena’s past. It came at the 2008 Royal Rumble when Cena entered last at No. 30 to shock those in the ring. He had been out for a few months due to a torn pectoral muscle and returned far ahead of schedule. Cena fans and haters alike can remember this return and should be able to appreciate the surprise and genuine shock value of the moment. Even if you prefer the “Cena sucks” chant over “Let’s go Cena,” this video can bring some excitement. The post WWE Throwback Thursday: John Cena Returns appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
