As you likely know by now, John Cena took a vicious beating (a lot of it for real) at the hands of Brock Lesnar last night (Sun., April 29, 2012) in the main event of the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
It was a surprising decision, especially considering the story they're telling and the promo Cena cut afterwards. He told the live crowd his arm is jacked up and he's likely leaving for a while. This led to speculation that he's simply taking a vacation for a few months to heal up some nagging injuries. Or he's possibly filming The Marine 3, which seems ludicrous.
Either way, it appears as though Cena is leaving for a while. WWE.com is running an injury angle on its website to support this idea.
Assuming he is really taking time off, it didn't do so without getting in a parting shot on his Twitter account shortly after last night's event ended.
Warfare is the Tao of deception. Thus: Although you are capable, display incapability. Sun Tzu, Art of War
Oh, screw you, Cena.
