Cody Rhodes has made quite the impact ever since he came back to the WWE. After making his jaw-dropping return at WrestleMania 38 where he defeated Seth Rollins in a five-star match, Rhodes has since gone on to have two more matches with Rollins with the latest one being inside Hell in a Cell. What made that match even more impressive was that Cody wrestled with a torn pectoral muscle and he not only competed but went on to win the match in what was a once-in-a-lifetime performance.

A lot of wrestlers have been speaking highly of Rhodes and recently, WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T also joined in on the praises. Speaking on his Hall of Fame Podcast, the five-time WCW Champion said, “I wanted to work with Cody Rhodes, I wanted to have my last match in the ring in WWE with Cody. I always thought Cody was at the same level as Seth Rollins, Batista, and all of that other group that came out, John Cena, and all of that. I always thought Cody was just as talented.”

Cody Rhodes may return sooner than expected

Cody Rhodes recently posted a photo of a gym along with the following caption to his Instagram story. “Sling off for rehab in the gym. I’ve heard 9 months, that’s their plan…“I’ve never concerned myself with other people’s projections – I’ve got a plan of my own – let’s finish, all of us.” Given that Rhodes persisted in competing in the Hell in a Cell bout despite having a torn tricep, it becomes clear to assume that he will work hard to recover quickly.

The length of time it takes to recover from an injury is never simple to predict, but WWE usually adds a few more months. This guarantees that someone will frequently arrive earlier than expected and wow admirers. Some fans may have thought that Rhodes’ comeback for the Royal Rumble was ruled out by the announcement that he would be away for nine months, which would make his triumphant return even sweeter.
