At the time the full nature of the injury was unknown, although it was expected that the American Nightmare would still be appearing as advertised.
WWE have now offered an update on the situation, announcing that Rhodes suffered a partially torn right pectoral tendon during his brawl with Rollins on the most recent episode of Raw. However, things then went from bad to worse for the former AEW star.
Rhodes aggravated the injury while weight training, tearing the tendon “completely off the bone.” Despite this, the update from WWE states that Rhodes has vowed to still step inside Hell in a Cell.

Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins have been locked in a heated feud ever since Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38. At the ‘Showcase of the Immortals,’ the American Nightmare emerged victorious, much to the disgust of the former WWE Champion.
This led to a rematch at WrestleMania Backlash after Rollins complained that he didn’t have time to prepare for the original match as Rhodes was a surprise opponent. However, Rhodes picked up the win again, grabbing hold of Rollins’ tights after the Architect had tried to do the same to him.
The defeat set Rollins into even more of a downward spiral which led to Rhodes challenging him to a Hell in a Cell match to finally settle their differences.
