Cody Rhodes has returned to training despite only undergoing surgery just one week ago.

Just one week after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral tendon, Cody Rhodes is already back to work.

On June 16th the Nightmare Factory’s official Twitter account shared a picture of Rhodes working at the training facility with a group of young hopefuls. Pictured in a sling, Rhodes is leading a tape reviewing session with his students. The tape in question featured the 1991 SummerSlam clash between Bret Hart and Mr Perfect.

Cody Rhodes runs the Nightmare Factory wrestling school alongside AEW’s QT Marshall. The school which was opened in 2020 was featured in a recent WWE vignette ahead of Hell In A Cell.

Since returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38, Cody Rhodes has quickly risen to become one the top stars in the company. After defeating Seth Rollins at the spectacular, the feud between the pair continued with two more matches taking place at WrestleMania Backlash and Hell In A Cell.

However, ahead of Hell In A Cell WWE reported that Rhodes had sustained a pectoral injury, which he subsequently damaged further in the lead up to the event. By show night, when Rhodes was due to meet Rollins in the main event inside Hell In A Cell, he had torn his pectoral tendon off the bone.

Despite the injury, Rhodes and Rollins went toe-to-toe for almost 25 minutes, with the American Nightmare picking up the win. The following night on Raw, the two men ended up in another confrontation which ended with Rollins hitting his rival with a sledgehammer as a way of writing him off television.

In the days after the show underwent surgery, which was confirmed to have been successful. While WWE announced that the star will be out of action for up to nine months.
