The wrestling world is still buzzing over the return of The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes. The prodigal son resurfaced back to WWE after suffering a serious pectoral muscle injury at this weekend’s Royal Rumble event. Cody worked day and night to recover and rehabilitate to get back in the ring, but will never go back to watch his performance with a broken shoulder at the Hell in a Cell event.
The American Nightmare made his grand comeback to WWE at last year’s WrestleMania event after being away from the company for six years. He was revealed as Seth Rollins’ mystery opponent and was able to knock off the Drip God for the win.
The heated rivalry between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins continued for weeks until tragedy fell over Rhodes. Right before their third encounter, Cody suffered a torn pec injury right before the Hell in a Cell event.
Nonetheless, the grandson of the plumber showed the spirit of a warrior and arrived to compete against Seth Rollins inside the Hell in a Cell structure. As Cody Rhodes removed his robe, a visibly discolored skin around his pec area could be spotted.
Despite not being 100%, Cody Rhodes fought valiantly with one arm practically and prevailed over Seth Rollins for the third time. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com recently revealed on Twitter that Cody Rhodes told him that he will never watch his Hell in a Cell match and doesn’t look at it fondly.
“Cody Rhodes told me he will never watch the torn pec match against Seth Rollins and doesn’t look on it fondly.”
Cody Rhodes made his return from injury as the #30 entrant in the 2023 Royal Rumble match. He lastly eliminated Gunther, who entered at #1 spot to punch his ticket for a main event championship match at WrestleMania 39.
