John Cena is scheduled to return from his nose injury on the final Raw before SummerSlam—set for August 17, 2015 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Though Cena will miss much of the build to SummerSlam, he is expected to wrestle at the annual event, which takes place on August 23, 2015 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
“Cena is out for a while. I suspect he’ll be wrestling at SummerSlam, he’s scheduled to be back at the go-home shows,” Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio on Sunday.
Cena suffered a badly broken nose on Raw last week, after Seth Rollins landed a straight knee to the face. The break was significant, requiring extensive medical work to be fixed. It is now important for Cena to take the right amount of time to let that heal. It isn’t too serious, but it does require healing time.
It is unknown if WWE will still match Cena with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam, given that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match deserves a strong build. However, the real life nose break could be used as a major selling point..
Cena’s also renowned for healing quickly. It wouldn’t be that much of a surprise if he ends up back on Raw even quicker than the go-home show.
