John Cena is on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery with Dr. James Andrews to repair his torn left triceps, an injury which made his elbow look more like a baseball.

Cena injured his arm in July at a WWE live event and showed just how bad his injury looked on this past week's episode of Monday Night RAW. Cena went under the knife Wednesday and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks of action while he recovers.

A photo of Cena's original injury as well as a grinning Cena in a cast standing next to Dr. Andrews post-surgery can be viewed here.

Despite having just one arm, Cena was still able to tweet following the surgery:

Cena originally downplayed the disgusting looking injury, but it turned out to be a triceps tear, and was attended to by Dr. Andrews who has operated on thousands of athletes including Michael Jordan, Brett Favre and Bo Jackson, just to name a few.

Despite being hurt, Cena still wrestled last Sunday at WWE's 26th annual SummerSlam pay-per-view extravaganza that emanated from the Staples Center in Los Angeles for the fifth straight year. Cena unsuccessfully defended his WWE Championship against Daniel Bryan at the event before Randy Orton cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the gold and close out the show.

Cena could possibly miss the rest of 2014, and the WWE will continue to go on without its face of the franchise.

Cena, 36, has represented the WWE as its biggest star for the past decade and is a record 11-time WWE Champion.
