Cody not medically cleared to compete after Full Gear injuries

Cody Rhodes has not been medically cleared to wrestle so he will not be in action this week on Dynamite.

He received eight stitches backstage at Full Gear after a bad cut above his eye and a photo showed his mother, an emergency room nurse, stitching him up. Rhodes also suffered a costochondral separation, an injury where the rib is separated from the sternum at the costochondral joint. This injury occurred when Cody went face and chest first following a dive on Jericho, but the AEW champ moved and Cody crashed into the metal ramp.

There was also a scare that he might have suffered a concussion after landing on the metal ramp and ringside doctor Dr. Michael Sampson – the former WWE doc who helped revive Jerry “The King” Lawler following his heart attack – had to check to make sure Cody was alright to keep on going with the match.
