The latest on John Cena is that he is not expected to be cleared to return until next month, according to the Wrestling Observer newsletter. The original word on him was July but May is what is being said now. There were reports during WrestleMania weekend that he was cleared but he was actually cleared to do limited stuff in the ring. That’s why he was able to get physical at WrestleMania in the segment with The Rock.
It was pretty clear that he wasn’t ready for a full-time schedule because he would have been The Undertaker’s replacement on the European tour if he was available.
Cena is not scheduled for the Payback pay-per-view.
