john cenaConflicting Reports Regarding Cena Injury

PWInsider.com noted moments ago that John Cena is indeed legitimately injured, and he announced to the live crowd at last night's house show in South Carolina that he is suffering from a strained groin.

The report also noted WWE wanted to keep Cena off this weekend's house shows but he refused and insisted on working the events.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, however, is now reporting that Cena is not suffering from any legitimate injury, and he is simply selling the Wyatt Family attack from Raw this week. Meltzer added there was no suggestion from WWE doctors that he not work this weekend's live events, and neither his groin nor knee are actually injured.

We will continue to provide the latest on this developing story as it becomes available.
