Legendary WWE superstar John Cena is currently injured due to shoulder surgery last month, but he’s keeping busy in his free time since he’s the pace car drive at today’s Daytona 500. He also took some time to answer some questions about his health and status for WrestleMania 32 on April 3.
Here are some of his quotes courtesy of FoxSports.com. As you can tell, he’s being pretty vague about things and also pretty silly.
“Percentage-wise, I’m somewhere between zero and 100. That’s a safe estimation for me.”
“As far as me participating in WrestleMania 32, the Magic 8-Ball says ‘ask again later.”
“It would be personally unfortunate for me to miss WrestleMania. But if I can’t perform, it would be unfortunate for the people watching WrestleMania to see me suffer through something that isn’t worthy of the event.”
“I take a very unselfish approach to my job and what I do because people spend their hard-earned money to enjoy what we do. And our goal is to deliver the best show possible. If I can contribute to that, great. If I can’t then, it not helping any of fans … we’ll see how it works.”
“I know there will be a WrestleMania 33 and 34 and 35. And hopefully 100.”
He’s really not saying that much there because I honestly believe he has no idea if he’ll be ready for WrestleMania. The expected recovery time for his surgery was supposed to be around four months at best. It’s a 4-6 month type of injury. If he makes it back for WrestleMania then it will only be three months. Yes, he’s a freak of nature when it comes to coming back from injuries early as we’ve seen with his neck, torn pec and torn biceps in the past. However, it may be asking too much for him to return in time for the biggest show of the year.
If Cena does return for WrestleMania, the strong rumor is that he’ll face The Undertaker. Late last night, Cena posted this Undertaker pic on Instagram to get people talking.
Is he just trolling people for attention or is there something to it? I’m not sure.
I don’t think he’ll be ready for WrestleMania, but if anybody can come back from a surgery early it’s Cena. I have my doubts, though. There’s still six weeks until WrestleMania, so time is running out. Can Super Cena do it? I wouldn’t bet against him.
