Seth Rollins Details Seeing Cody Rhodes' Torn Pectoral Muscle At WWE Hell In A Cell
Cody Rhodes wrestled the match with a nasty injury
One of the most shocking moments of the year took place at June's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view as Cody Rhodes, who had suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the days before the show, removed his jacket prior to his match inside the cell against Seth Rollins to reveal a bruise that covered much of his right side.
There was an audible gasp as Rhodes took off his entrance jacket and Seth Rollins admitted to Digital Spy that he thought the injury was "pretty gnarly."
"I don't think I expected it to look like that. I've had some torn muscles in my day and I know that the blood seeps down, gravity just takes over but I had never seen anything like that. I remember Triple H had torn his pec some time ago at an event and shared a picture of it and it was pretty brutal but nothing like what we saw from Cody at Hell in a Cell. His bicep, tricep, shoulder, pec it was down to his belly button almost, it was pretty gnarly," Rollins said.
"It was definitely shocking and I think the way I felt about it was how the audience in Chicago felt. They were just very uncomfortable for the first little bit. I think people were even wary just to cheer for him because it was so wild."
Cody ultimately would wrestle with the injury and he defeated Rollins inside Hell In A Cell in what many have tipped as one of the matches of the year so far. Rhodes was then written off WWE TV the next night on Raw and the company announced he will be out of action for nine months.
