John Cena was kept off Monday’s RAW due to the swelling in his eye. The feeling was that they needed to give him a week off so the eye wouldn’t look bad on TV. The injury was described as a situation where Cena just caught a fingernail to the eye in the live event match with Randy Orton. There was some concern that his cornea might have been scratched but that wasn’t the case. The idea was to keep Cena off TV so they wouldn’t have to do a close-up on camera of his face or anything like that.
