Roman Reigns set to replace John Cena on the Indian tour

- Following the shocking injury revelation by John Cena, WWE has announced his replacement for the upcoming Indian tour, scheduled for next week. Replacing the longtime franchise player on the tour is current WWE World Heavyweight champion Roman Reigns.

Reigns, who wasn’t announced to be a part of the initially announced WWE crew to tour India, makes a fitting replacement for the injured Cena as he would be carrying a huge wave of momentum with him, since becoming champion.

As we had noted, John Cena announced on Twitter las evening that he is set to undergo shoulder surgery today in Birmingham, Alabama. As per reports, he is suffering from a torn rotator cuff and is most likely to miss this year’s Wrestlemania.

While it was not confirmed in any way, the reports were for him to face The Undertaker at this year’s Mania. This would be the first Wrestlemania without Cena wrestling on the show, since he made his Wrestlemania debut back in 2004.

His last match came on December 30th at a WWE live event against United States Champion Alberto Del Rio. He did not appear on RAW but did appear on SmackDown but did not wrestle.
