Jericho vs Rhodes Almost Cut Short Due To Injury
The match between current AEW Champion Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes during AEW Full Gear was almost cut short because of injury.
According to a report by Wrestling Inc., Cody took a dive out of the ring and landed hard on a metal ramp. This resulted in a nasty cut opening above his eye. The injury reportedly could have ended the match then and there, but AEW’s Dr. Michael Sampson checked on Rhodes and determined that the match could continue.
The match ended when, as Jericho had Rhodes in the Liontamer, MJF decided to throw in the towel and call the bell. MJF turned heel when he then delivered a low blow to Rhodes.
As per the latest reports, Cody has eight stitches and a costochondral separation, and he is currently not cleared for in-ring action.
Wrestling Inc is also reporting that Adam “Hangman” Page might have ended up with a stinger during his match with PAC, but it’s believed that Page will be cleared for the next episode of Dynamite. No other injuries were reported.
