Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Rhodes provided an update on his recovery.

"There's a lot of people who have had knee injuries, back injuries, sometimes spinal and neck. When it comes to the titty, your pec, it's a really strange injury. They tie that sucker back to your bicep. I had Dr. (Jeffrey) Dugas, he's the best in the world to do it. The problem with him doing it is, he knows me, and they are being very coy. I was told the last time I was there for my check up, after PT [physical therapy], they are not going to give me a timeline just yet for when I'm going to be back because they are afraid that if they give me that timeline, I'm going to try and jump it by a month or two. The surgery was really...I almost hemorrhaged in the surgery because there was so much blood. People have seen the picture of it in the match. It was pretty gnarly," he said.

It is unknown when Cody will return to the ring.

His WWE return at WrestleMania 38 is nominated for WWE Moment of the Year at the 2022 ESPN EPSY Awards. You can learn more by clicking here.
