Cody Rhodes: Fans react to gruesome pectoral injury at Hell in a Cell

Last updated

WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes took part in the main event of Hell in a Cell tonight from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, despite his injury.

It was confirmed by WWE that Cody had a completely torn pectoral muscle on his right side from lifting weights earlier in the week.

Despite the injury, Rhodes went ahead with his Hell in a Cell match against Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins, and it was brutal.

Cody appeared for the match with his ring jacket on, and when he took it off the crowd gasped at the gruesome nature of his pectoral and shoulder.
