Cody Rhodes has shown off a number of painful looking injuries following the fiery climax of his recent clash with Andrade El Idolo.
On the December 1st edition of AEW Dynamite, the rivalry between Cody Rhodes and Andrade El Idolo escalated to a whole new level. The two men have been battling since early November, but nothing could have prepared fans for their latest bout.
In the main event of the show the two rivals met in a Atlanta Street Fight. The brawl featured chairs, tables, a golden shovel and even a taser. However, it was the finale that got fans talking. With Rhodes and Andrade perched on the top rope, looking to drive each other through the table which had been assembled below, a hooded figure rushed the ring.
The mystery intruder quickly revealed themselves to be Brandi Rhodes, making her first appearance in AEW in a number of months. Not content with simply keeping a watching brief, Brandi then set the table on fire, leaving her husband to suplex Andrade through the now flaming furniture to secure the win.
Immediately after the show, Rhodes was pictured with pieces of the charred table still stuck to his back.
Posting an update of his own on social media, Rhodes has now shown off the gruesome looking burns that the brutal end to the match left behind.
