It turns out that Cody Rhodes suffered a minor injury in his latest match.
Rhodes beat Wardlow in a Steel Cage Match during this past Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite episode on TNT to complete the final stipulation set out by MJF. With Rhodes winning this match, he’ll face his rival at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view on Saturday, March 29.
Rhodes and AEW announced the injury on Friday night. Cody shared a photo from the match on Instagram where he noted that the injury happened when he hit a big moonsault from the top of the cage.
This is where he suffered a small fracture in his big toe. He added that he’s on a treatment plan and cleared for action for Revolution.
He wrote, “‘Long way down…’ – small fracture in my big toe, but I’m on a treatment plan with @docwholifts_1 & CLEARED for action. @allelitewrestling @aewontnt #aew”
AEW then made a tweet by writing the following:
“As first reported by @CodyRhodes on his IG account And confirmed by @DocSampson13. Due to Cody’s foot hitting the mat after landing the moonsault, he has a: Non-displaced fracture of distal phalanx R great toe. His status: Cleared for action as tolerated.”
