Both IWGP United States Champion Cody Rhodes and Joey Ryan are dealing with injuries at the moment. As a result, neither man was able to compete at their World Series Wrestling booking this week. Rhodes is dealing with a torn meniscus in his knee that he’s rehabbing. He won’t undergo surgery until after his match with Jay Lethal at ROH’s December 14th pay-per-view and after his to-be-announced bout at Wrestle Kingdom 13.
Ryan has a torn left pectoral muscle that will require surgery to repair. Although Cody and Ryan weren’t able to compete inside the ring, they still held a meet and greet with fans at the show. They also did a segment with each other during the event as well. Cody defended his IWGP US Title against Ryan in a staring contest.
It looked like things were pretty even until Brandi Rhodes came out and distracted Ryan, costing him the match. You can check out the full segment here:
