All Elite Wrestling has confirmed that Cody Rhodes suffered a shoulder injury during his match on Wednesday evening's AEW Dynamite.
The 35-year-old teamed with Lee Johnson to pick up a victory over 'Pretty' Peter Avalon and Cezar Bononi on Wednesday's show, but Arn Anderson would confirm that Rhodes "dinged his shoulder up pretty early on" in the match during Coach's Corner.
In a statement given to Wrestling Inc shortly after, AEW confirmed the extent of Rhode's injury, saying: “Following the recording of Coach’s Corner, it was confirmed by the AEW medical team that Cody Rhodes suffered a slight tear of his left rotator cuff during his tag team match on Dynamite. His current status is TBD.”
'The American Nightmare' would take to social media to post an emoji of an injured man after the statement.
It remains to be seen if the injury is a part of storyline or is a legitimate set-back for Rhodes, who is scheduled to team with Red Velvet against Shaq and Jade Cargill on the March 3 episode of AEW Dynamite.
