Report: Why Cody Rhodes Was Cleared To Wrestle At WWE Hell In A Cell WWE

Backstage details have emerged on the reason why Cody Rhodes was cleared to wrestle at WWE Hell in a Cell after tearing his pectoral muscle.

Ahead of Rhodes’ main event against Seth Rollins, WWE announced that Rhodes suffered a partial tear to his pec during a recent WWE angle, but tore the muscle completely off the bone during training.

Rhodes went on to wrestle for 24 minutes in the main event of the show, ultimately picking up the victory over Rollins inside Hell in a Cell.

Per, Rhodes wouldn’t have been cleared if he had only suffered a partial tear. After suffering a complete tear, the reasoning was reportedly that there was no more damage that could’ve been done to the pectoral muscle.

The report noted that some planned spots were removed from the bout, including a moonsault from Rhodes onto Rollins.

After the cameras stopped rolling, Rhodes took to the mic to address fans in the Allstate Arena, stating that it was solely his decision to step into the ring that night.

There has been some fan criticism surrounding the decision to allow Rhodes to wrestle with a serious injury, which you can read more about right here.

We will continue to provide updates on Rhodes’ condition as they become available.
