At the start of the Hell in a Cell kickoff show, the injury to Cody Rhodes was addressed.

Kayla Braxton stated that Rhodes sustained a partially torn pectoral muscle during the brawl with Seth Rollins this past Monday on Raw. Then, while weight training, Rhodes suffered a complete tear of the pectoral muscle.

WWE stated that the Hell in a Cell match with Seth Rollins will still take place tonight in Chicago.

POST Wrestling was first made aware of the injury to Rhodes on Saturday afternoon and Rhodes did not wrestle on the live event in Champaign, Illinois. Instead, Rhodes did a run-in at the event and briefly attacked Rollins.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that the injury occurred while Rhodes was lifting weights. Both of us were told separately that it was a torn pectoral muscle.
