In an update from reports in the last two weeks, The Figure Four Weekly Newsletter is reporting that John Cena had an MRI on January 24 to see the damage on his lower back and neck. At this point it is believed he is working with a bulging disc. As a result, WWE has cut back on his workload in the ring by booking him in shorter matches and more tag team matches. Cena was also pulled from the WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble (being replaced by Randy Orton as the original plan was Cena vs. Sheamus). Despite the injury, Cena was still working main events at WWE house show events last weekend.
