Cody Rhodes injured his knee back in November of last year. He said he was going to take some time off to address it, but not until after gutting through a Wrestle Kingom match at the Tokyo Dome last month which was generally rated... no bueno.
That’s part of why the All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice-President decided he couldn’t put off surgery any longer:
Surgery is a must, I can’t afford to have another stinker like the dome match. https://t.co/RYCIl4xAQK— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) February 10, 2019
His wife, Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes revealed that today (Feb. 12) is the day for surgery on what was reported as a meniscus tear:
And it didn’t take long, because the American Nightmare is out of surgery and ready to get some pizza with Don, Mike, Raf & Leo (or Nick, Matt, Kenny & Hangman, more likely, cause those other guys are turtles):
Surgery completed. Went smooth. Back to work. (Cowabunga I guess) pic.twitter.com/xtUmaJKnWX— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) February 12, 2019
See you at Double Or Nothing! And probably a lot of YouTube videos and indie shows between now and May 25, too.
