As previously announced, Ring of Honor Wrestling and current IWGP United States Champion Cody was forced to withdraw from the recent Global Wars event due to suffering an injury.
Cody had been scheduled to defend his title against Beretta at the event.
In an update, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Cody’s results have shown that he suffered a large meniscus tear that will require him to undergo arthroscopic surgery. Cody himself, however, has confirmed that his MCL, PCL, and ACL are all “structurally sound,” meaning he won’t have to undergo a more serious surgery.
GOOD news is my doctor is fairly confident that my mcl/pcl/acl are structurally sound.— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) November 12, 2018
BAD news is the meniscus is fairly damaged, gonna’ require a scope. No dates will be adjusted at the moment, and I’ll definitely still compete in the final battle main event & at WK. pic.twitter.com/PtyK1wpoiz
