WWE’s John Cena involved in car accident; driver of other vehicle reportedly ‘couldn’t see him’
Former (too-many-times-to-count) WWE champion John Cena was involved in a car accident this morning when the SUV he was driving in Philadelphia was allegedly hit from behind by a tractor-trailer.
“…The SUV the WWE Superstar was traveling in was reportedly rear ended by a tractor trailer. Police arrived at the scene and no immediate injuries were reported.
Cena is scheduled to meet with WWE medical personnel when he arrives at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center for tonight’s WWE Raw SuperShow event.
In less than two weeks, Cena will face The Rock at WrestleMania XXVIII in the most anticipated bout in WWE history. The effect this accident will have on the Cenation leader remains to be seen. WWE.com will stay with this story as it develops.”
Allegedly, the driver of the tractor-trailer has given a statement to police that he “couldn’t see him”–a classic case of life imitating art.
While I’m happy he’s not seriously injured, that’s what Cena gets for buying a used camouflaged SUV from Sgt. Slaughter.
The Rock has also supposedly issued a statement hoping Cena doesn’t offer this as an excuse as they prepare to meet in Miami for an iconic showdown. After all, the Rock was involved in a serious tractor-trailer accident weeks before his WrestleMania showdown with Hulk Hogan and still managed to defeat the leader of the NWO.
Hell, Jerry Lawler shook off this extreme car “accident” at the evil hands of Eddie Gilbert and was wrestling two nights later in Memphis. C’mon, Cena, get it together.
