Cena Kept off Raw

As noted earlier this week, John Cena's eye was very swollen due to it being scratched in a match with Randy Orton at a live show this past weekend. is reporting that John Cena was kept off of television this week so he would not look bad on camera.

Furthermore, John Cena did not suffer any damage to his cornea, which was a concern earlier in the week. WWE wanted to keep him off so they would'nt have to address the injury or focus the camera on his eye at all. As we reported last night, Randy Orton vs John Cena has been announced for Raw next week, so the injury is definitely not serious.
