WWE star Cody Rhodes picked up a huge win over Seth Rollins inside the Hell In A Cell at the namesake Premium Live event. It was previously speculated that he might be a part of the show as it was announced that he suffered an injury. He also cut an emotional promo following the victory. Now, the former WWE star Ariane Andrew, formerly known as Cameron in WWE has addressed suggestions that Cody Rhodes faked his gruesome injury at Hell in a Cell.
Cody Rhodes tore his pectoral tendon
WWE announced shortly before the event that Rhodes tore his right pectoral tendon off the bone while preparing to face Seth Rollins. Despite showing severe bruising, he went on to defeat his long-term rival in a gruesome battle that lasted for 24 minutes.
Andrew, who had a stint with WWE from 2011 to 2016, spoke to SEScoops’ Steve Fall about whether or not the injury was legitimate. Here is what she had to say:
“Dealing with wrestling, there’s always gonna be major injuries,” Andrew said. “Everyone always says it’s fake, ‘Oh my God, wrestling’s not real.’ But it is very real. Him showing up [injured], I don’t know, I started to learn with WWE and wrestling, what is real and what is fake? What’s to get people intrigued? Because, at the end of the day, this is still entertainment.”
Andrew then shared her opinion on how Rhodes was able to perform if he really did suffer a serious injury:
“When you are in a match and when your blood’s going, when the adrenaline’s going, you can be very injured but you’re just like, you know what, at the end of the day, as someone who is a superstar, as someone who wants to make sure they give the fans what they want, wants to make sure the fans got their money’s worth, they’re gonna do whatever they need to do to make sure they put on a good show.”
We will now have to see what is next for ‘The American Nightmare.’
