John Cena was initially scheduled to be examined by Dr. Lloyd Youngblood in San Antonio, TX on Wednesday. Youngblood has performed neck surgery on many WWE stars including Steve Austin, Edge, and Lita. There is a fear that Cena's injury is far worse than just the herniated disc mentioned on RAW.
UPDATE: Dr. Joseph Maroon, Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Team Neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is scheduled to perform surgery on John Cena's neck today. WWE.com hopes to have post-surgical interviews with both Dr. Maroon and John Cena later today. Despite the setback, Cena plans on returning to the ring as soon as possible.
"You can either do one of two things: be upset or know what you can do to get better," said Cena, "the ultimate goal is to be as strong as I can and get back into the ring as soon as possible."
