As seen at the 2022 WWE Hell in a Cell PLE, Cody Rhodes defeated Seth Rollins inside HIAC despite having a torn pectoral muscle. Rhodes vs. Rollins was the first main roster WWE match to receive a five-star rating from Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com since John Cena vs. CM Punk at the 2011 Money in the Bank PPV.
According to Meltzer, Rhodes had surgery on Thursday, June 9th in Birmingham, AL under Dr. Jeffrey Dugas. WWE had mistakenly listed the surgery date as Wednesday. The belief is that Rhodes will be out of action for up to six months. John Cena recovered from the same injury after four months and Triple H took five months to recover.
Brandi Rhodes wrote the following about her husband’s surgery via Twitter…
“The doctor just repaired Cody’s pectoral tendon which was torn completely off the bone. Successful surgery. He is on the road to recovery now.”
