Cody Rhodes has undergone successful surgery to repair his torn right pectoral. 

Former AEW CBO Brandi Rhodes, Cody's wife, made the announcement on social media on Thursday that surgery was deemed a success and that Cody is "on the road to recovery."

Rhodes suffered the torn pec while weight training last week ahead of last Sunday's Hell in a Cell bout against Seth Rollins. WWE stated on television that Rhodes had partially torn the tendon in a brawl with Rollins on last week's Raw, with the complete tear coming during weight training. 

Rhodes still performed at Hell in a Cell, defeating Rollins in the main event in a Hell in a Cell match. The following night on Raw, WWE shot an injury angle where Rollins attacked Rhodes with a sledgehammer. 

No timetable has been stated as to an expected return to action for Rhodes, but various sports medicine sources indicate six to nine months as a general guideline.
