Cody Rhodes Suffers Meniscus Tear, Surgery Required

Cody Rhodes said on Twitter that the results of his MRI on his knee came back and he has a torn meniscus, which will require surgery.

However, he said he will not miss any dates yet and will still wrestle at ROH Final Battle on December 14, and at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 13 on January 4, 2019.

According to Dave Meltzer, his plan is to undergo surgery after those shows, some time in January. No word on how much time he might miss, but depending on the severity of the injury, it could be anywhere from just four weeks to six months. That he still plans to wrestle through it could be a sign that his recovery will be on the low end of that spectrum.

The injury happened at a Ring of Honor show on November 9. Cody said that he heard a “loud pop” in his knee while doing crowd work.
