What's the story

Cody Rhodes underwent successful knee surgery earlier this afternoon to repair a torn meniscus. Cody has been suffering with the knee injury since last November.

In case you didn't know...

Back in November, Cody Rhodes had suffered a knee injury moments before his match at ROH Global Wars: Buffalo. Cody was teasing a simple t-shirt throw for the crowd when he suddenly heard a loud pop in his knee. He would go on to wrestle on that night but would be forced to withdraw from competing against Beretta at ROH Global Wars: Toronto.

Cody would continue to wrestle through the beginning of 2019, having his last in-ring match (to date) against Juice Robinson at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom XIII, dropping the IWGP United States Championship to Robinson. In the midst of the AEW related announcements and rallies, Cody has been very busy as of late and has now taken the opportunity to repair his knee and get back to work.

The heart of the matter

Cody Rhodes underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery to repair damaged meniscus around the knee area. Thankfully, Cody did not suffer any major tears in his ACL/MCL/PCL ligaments that would've been catastrophic for "The American Nightmare". Cody provided a post-surgery update on his Twitter page to inform wrestling fans that everything went okay.

What's next

Cody Rhodes and the rest of the All-Elite Wrestling roster will be holding "Double or Nothing" live on May 25th, 2019 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following this show, more shows have been planned and laid out throughout the Summer months leading into September 2019.
