Hopefully it isn’t too bad. Every wrestler, no matter what level they are on, is going to get hurt at one point or another. There is always going to be something ranging from being banged up to full on injured but the question is how bad things are. Sometimes you can work through it and not miss any time, which hopefully continues to be the case with an AEW injury.

AEW does a lot of different things and one of their signature appeals is a rather physical style. Almost all of their wrestlers up and down the card are a mixture of athletic and intense, which can make for quite the showdowns in the ring. Sometimes that can come back to haunt you though and one of the bigger AEW stars is currently dealing with a nagging injury.

In a new Coach’s Corner video, Arn Anderson revealed that Cody Rhodes has re-aggrivated his shoulder injury. Rhodes injured his shoulder in February and then hurt it again during last week’s mixed tag team match with Shaquille O’Neal. Anderson asked Rhodes to take a break but he insisted on wrestling in the ladder match at Revolution. There is nothing to suggest that Rhodes will miss any ring time.

Rhodes has been busy lately. Check out the announcement and what he has been up to in recent weeks:

Shaq Gets Knocked Out by Cody Rhodes! | AEW Dynamite

The Coolest Entrance of the Year - Snoop Dogg and Cody Rhodes | AEW New Year's Smash Night 1, 1/6/21

Opinion: Hopefully this isn’t too bad as a shoulder injury can take its sweet time getting better. Rhodes is one of the most important parts of the AEW roster and it would be quite the negative if he had to miss any time, especially if it was a significant amount. Wrestling so often is not going to help things, but Rhodes seems ok enough to keep going at the moment.
