WWE has confirmed that Cody Rhodes' injury is a torn right pec. He's still scheduled to face Seth Rollins at Hell in a Cell tonight.
Cody Rhodes has suffered an injury ahead of Hell in a Cell.
On today's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Rhodes suffered an injury while weight training this week. Meltzer said the story going around is that Rhodes suffered a torn pec, but Meltzer doesn't know for sure if that's the injury.
Rhodes is scheduled to face Seth Rollins in a Hell in a Cell match at tonight's WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Meltzer said the presumption is that Rhodes will still be working the match.
"Cody hurt himself weight training this week. The story going around backstage last night in Champaign, Illinois is that he tore his pec. I don't know that 100 percent [if] that is the injury. That's definitely the story going around. That's what multiple wrestlers were saying last night, and Cody was there, so he probably told them," Meltzer said.
"The presumption everyone had was he's working Hell in a Cell tonight and from there we'll see. But a torn pec is, you know, that's a pretty serious injury, if it is that."
Rhodes vs. Rollins in a street fight was scheduled for last night's house show in Champaign, Illinois, but it was announced that Rhodes was injured and the match was changed. Rhodes still appeared at the show as part of an angle with Rollins.
Rhodes tweeted this afternoon:
Rhodes and Rollins have faced each other at two straight PPVs leading into Hell in a Cell, with Rhodes defeating Rollins at both WrestleMania 38 and WrestleMania Backlash.
