Cena out, will undergo surgery today

STAMFORD, Conn. -- WWE Superstar John Cena is temporarily out of action with a herniated disk in his neck.

The injury is the horrific outcome of a high impact Batista Bomb that caught an airborne Cena off the top rope at SummerSlam, resulting in numbness in his right arm and extensive pain in his shoulder.

"You can either do one of two things:  be upset or know what you can do to get better," said former WWE Champion Cena. "The ultimate goal is to be as strong as I can and get back into the ring as soon as possible."

Cena will undergo surgery at 1 p.m. ET today, performed by Dr. Joseph Maroon, renowned Neurosurgeon, Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Team Neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
