John Cena

John Cena has a brand new elbow after he went under surgery last month. 

I thought it was gonna be a basic scope but then they found that my elbow was old and worn so they drilled a lot more holes in it

The wrestler-turned-actor was expecting to be going under the knife for a routine operation, but it turned out not to be the case. 

The 12 Rounds star needed a whole new joing in his right arm after years of wear and tear from his days in the ring, the doctors discovered. 

During an appearance on U.S. talk show Live! With Kelly and Michael, Cena says:

"It's OK... I thought it was gonna be a basic scope but then they found that my elbow was old and worn so they drilled a lot more holes in it.

"I got a new elbow, but I can't quite move it yet".

But Cena doesn't expect to be out of action for long: "Pretty soon I'll be back and beating people up!"
