As we reported earlier today, John Cena suffered some type of eye injury at the WWE live event in Madison, Wisconsin.

Mid-way through Cena's bout against Bray Wyatt, the referee threw up the "X" sign and several members of the WWE medical staff checked in on Cena. Cena was able to finish the match but it was said he immediately headed to the back following the bout and did not stay in the ring to say his usual good byes to the crowd after the show.

Below is a photo of Cena being checked on by the medical staff:
