Cody Rhodes Opens Up About Torn Pec Injury, Eager For WWE Return

Sep 24, 2022 - by Steve Gerweck

Cody Rhodes is champing at the bit to return to WWE … telling TMZ Sports the torn pec muscle he suffered has him more motivated than ever to step foot back inside the ring.

And, when we spoke to the WWE Superstar at LAX earlier this week, he told us he’s getting closer to making his highly anticipated return.

“They know I’m stupid, and I’d try to test it,” Rhodes told us, adding, “I got in my mind where I want to be, and I think a lot of fans have in their mind where I’d like to be, and that’s hopefully where it’s at.”

Despite the serious injury, Rhodes return to the company has been awesome … as they’ve embraced him with open arms.

“They’ve treated me like the house that built me,” Rhodes said. “And honestly, it was amazing. “We were back, and everything was rolling so fast. And then I tore my pec.”

“It was like the best three months of my life,” he continued. “Hopefully, get back to that soon.”

Rhodes tore his pectoral muscle while weight training before his match against Seth Rollins at “Hell in a Cell,” and joked he was told he had the strength of an 11-year-old.

Rhodes isn’t rushing his return, despite badly wanting to wrestle again … but when he returns, he’s intent on capturing the magic he had with the fans pre-injury.

“Hopefully, it’s a run that people will remember, and I gotta be healthy for it.”
