As previously noted, Cody Rhodes was reportedly “a little ahead of schedule” in healing from his torn pectoral muscle injury.

In an update on Cody’s recovery, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that it is going “well” and he’s back to “normal” when it comes to his ability to train. Meltzer added that Cody has been “working heavily with top level trainers to put on size and strength and hit 240 pounds legit, which may be the thickest he’s been in his life.”
