WWE officials have confirmed Cody Rhodes suffered a concussion and an injury to his right shoulder on Tuesday night in Cleveland, landing badly on a back drop when in with Kane in a tag team title match with Kane & Daniel Bryan vs. Rhodes & Damien Sandow.

The match aired last night on Ion as the main match on the NWA Main Event show.

Rhodes is scheduled for further evaluation tomorrow to determine if he could possibly return on Sunday for Survivor Series.  WWE has strict rules regarding athletes who hae suffered concussions and he wouldn't be able to work the match unless he passed a concussion evaluation test.

There are reports of Tensai being the potentlal replacement but the company did not confirm that.
