WWE announces Cody Rhodes suffered a torn pectoral tendon

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE announced that Cody Rhodes suffered a partially torn right pectoral tendon during his brawl with Seth Rollins on Monday’s Raw. Rhodes then tore the tendon from the bone while training on Friday. Despite the injury, Rhodes will work tonight’s Hell in a Cell match against Seth Rollins. Read the full story at WWE.com.

Powell’s POV: A really tough break for Cody, who has been pushed aggressively since his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38. Although Cody is going through with tonight’s match, the injury is expected to require surgery. If so, that seemingly throws a wrench into the company’s plans, as Rhodes was widely regarded as the favorite to win the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match next month.

  1. After all the stupid shit he did in AEW he hurts himself brawling in WWE? Didn’t see that one coming.

  2. Well as somebody who has been into bodybuilding for 30 years now I can say that it is foolish to resume normal training that quickly after the initial injury. I know because I have made that mistake myself in my younger years and turned a one month injury into a one year chronic situation (No surgery though). I’ve made that mistake more than once too.

    I don’t know what they mean by training but going into a therapeutic rehab phase is the only productive way to manage the condition. If he was training like nothing happened then that is going to be a lesson learned.
