The WWE is fake, but John Cena’s injury during “RAW” Monday night was very real.

Cena went up against Seth Rollins, who hit him directly in the face with a high knee.

Though Cena was bleeding (like, real blood) and clearly was in the pain throughout the rest of the match, he fought through it.

His nose was terribly disfigured, but still he eventually defeated Rollins and received deservedly loud applause from the crowd.
