Several WWE superstars are gearing up their rehab process. The Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in Orlando, posted a photo of John Cena, Seth Rollins and Cesaro on Facebook. This is a good sign that all of them are back on the road to returning to the ring.
The photo was accompanied by the caption: “Dr. Jeff Dugas checking in on the rehab progress of a couple of #WWE superstars today in Orlando,” the post read. “#SportsMedicine #KeepEmHealthy.”
All of the wrestlers pictured are injured. Rollins is expected to be sidelined until May but according to sources within the wrestling company believe Cena is likely to return in the WWE ring at WrestleMania 32. Cesaro’s return date hasn’t been estimated yet but he isn’t expected back in time for the biggest show of them all.
Cena, who is one of the biggest stars in the wrestling word, underwent surgery on his shoulder in January of this year. Rollins tore several ligaments in his knee in November of 2015. Later that month, Cesaro tore his rotator cuff.
Cena’s return at WrestleMania isn’t secured. However, he’s been hinting his rehab is going better than expected.
Defy critics. Defy logic. Defy “experts”. Defy fatigue. Defy limitation. Defy fear. Obey passion. #Nevergiveup

As a result, Vince McMahon is tasked with finding a way to make WrestleMania successful without his biggest superstars. He was asked on a conference call last month how the WWE will deal with its lack of talent due to the injury crisis while ensuring WrestleMania is the best show of the year.
“By being creative,” he said via WrestlingInc. “We’ll have an awesome WrestleMania. It’ll be very attractive to our audience, just as attractive as last year.”
