Cody Rhodes heard a pop in his knee and he knew something was up. This couldn’t have been a good thing so he got it checked out after returning home. Then he found out that while he is injured, it could be much worse.
Dave Meltzer was able to provide new details on Cody’s injury during Wrestling Observer Radio and apparently, Cody has another appointment to seek a second opinion on Friday. So our fingers are cross that he will still have mostly good news out of this injury.
“So his MRI today, it’s a full meniscus tear. He needs surgery. The good news is that he can get it fixed with orthoscopic surgery so he got a knee brace. He’s going to get the surgery I believe in January but he is going to work Final Battle against Jay Lethal. He is going to work the Tokyo Dome it looks like it’s going to be against Juice Robinson. Then probably undergo surgery at that point.”
“He’s got another appointment on Friday and unless he gets bad news. The belief is that the MCL and the ACL and everything they’re all fine. If for some reason it’s bad news and that’s not the case then the whole diagnosis changes but they’re pretty confident that that’s what the deal is right now.”
“So he’s at least going to do those matches and as far as orthoscopic surgery, he could be back pretty quick from it and it’s a lot better than a reconstructive surgery because that would be at least 6-7 months. This would not be a good time for him to be off I suppose.”
Meltzer continued to say that he doesn’t know where Cody will even be in half a year’s time, but only time will tell. Cody has a lot of plans for 2019 and he certainly doesn’t have time to be injured. So hopefully, he will be able to get this fixes and he won’t be required to take any extensive departures from the ring to focus on healing up anything major.
