We previously reported that WWE decided to keep John Cena out of the main event at The Royal Rumble because he has been suffering from recent back pain. In an update to that report, The Figure Four Weekly Newsletter is reporting that Cena underwent an MRI last weekend which, at this point, seems to have indicated that he is suffering from a bulging disc. Therefore, WWE has decided to scale back on his in-ring work by having wrestle less time in matches and work tag matches as well so he can split the ring work with a partner. However, it should be noted that Cena has been working main event matches at house shows.
