John Cena is no longer being advertised for the Oct. 1, 2012, episode of WWE Monday Night Raw as he continues his rehab from elbow surgery.

Believe it or not, even Superman needs some time off.

Such is the case with top WWE superstar John Cena, who is no longer being advertised for tomorrow night's (Oct. 1, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

There's still a great deal of doubt regarding how long exactly Cena will be out of action. First, WWE.com ran with reports stating he would be out for two-to-three weeks. Upon seeing this, Cena himself took the website to task for the erroneous report, claiming his doctor actually told him his elbow was much worse than it looked originally and he would need somewhere around six weeks to heal.

Then, reports came out that Cena had told a crowd at NXT he would be back to wrestle in three weeks but those turned out to be false. All throughout, he was claiming he would make sure to be at Raw, although it's entirely possible he was only making reference to the next episode, which was last weeks, and he was there, sling and all, challenging CM Punk to a WWE championship match at Hell in a Cell.

That's still the plan, assuming Cena is healthy enough to be ready for it, although there were reports stating Ryback was the backup plan and that's why WWE shot the angle at the end of Raw this past Monday with Ryback confronting Punk after he kicked Mick Foley in the gut.

With this story, though, you just never know. The best we can do at this point is exactly what WWE always wants everyone to do anyway.

Stay tuned.
