Pro-wrestling may be fake but the injuries are real. I have been talking about some of the most dangerous incidents that WWE stars have suffered through in the past while performing inside the ring for quite some time now.

Be it Kane damaging Shawn Michaelsâ skull, permanently making him cross-eyed, or Kurt Angle breaking his neck several times during his career as a âperformerâ resulting in lack of blood flow to his arms and finally atrophying, these are some serious issues and they are very real. 

Today, letâs talk about someone very special. Someone who managed to be the face of the company for over a decade and someone who has been one of the greatest influences to the upcoming generation of wrestling fans, even after moving away from the business - John Cena

There is no denying the fact that Cena looks like a tank. His physique is a testament to the kind of hard work and discipline he has inculcated in his life and chooses to follow no matter what life throws his way.

But what a lot of people do not realise is his willingness to have a great show and make people fall in love with WWE, no matter what. For this, he is ready to go the distance, he is ready to suffer through pain, he is ready to meet any sort of health-related trouble that he might face in the future if it means that the fans are cheering (or booing) and that they go home satisfied.

During a 2007 match against Mr. Kennedy, Cena went for a typical arm-drag move, something he does all the time. He tossed his opponent over his right shoulder and immediately knew that something was wrong. 

According to reports, John Cena tore his right pectoral tendon in a flash and was in excruciating pain. He moved away from Kennedy and to the other corner of the ring, looked at his arm in disbelief, tried to shake off the pain but he couldnât. 

He bent down for a second only to stand back straight up steady his right arm and fought through the entire match with his left arm. He tried to carry out his signature moves just like heâd do in any other fight but you could see his expression change after every bump he took.

Cena and Kennedy had to improvise after the injury. The former trapped the latter in his iconic STFU submission manoeuvre and the match got over in a hurry. 

But it was decided well in advance that once Cena had won the match, Randy Orton would enter the ring and deliver some hard blows to him as a part of a storyline.

You could see Cena asking the referee whether âRandy was comingâ or not and when the referee nodded, he was ready to put his body through some more pain.

And like clockwork, Orton slithered into the ring, caught Cena with an RKO followed by a shot by the steel steps and another RKO on the announcersâ table. Keep in mind that even though the moves and shots were fake, Cena had to crash to the floor with a certain whiplash impact which could not have been good for the torn tendon.

Next week, Vince McMahon came to the show himself to make the announcement and used the injury to further the storyline between Cena and Orton. 

According to the doctors, Cena was supposed to stay out of action for about a year. He came back within four months and the fans lost it too.
