Cody Rhodes toughs out a grotesque pectoral tear to beat Seth Rollins

Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins turned in a Hell in a Cell match to remember at WWE's titular event.

Rhodes vs. Rollins 3 headlined a solid, well-paced night of sports entertainment at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

The rivalry between Rhodes and Rollins has persisted since Rhodes made the jump from AEW and returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 in April.

The two superstars delivered a gutsy, thought-provoking performance in what might be the final entry in this pocket of their rivalry.

Rhodes suffered a complete pectoral tear shortly before the event. The visuals were disturbing as Rhodes' chest, and bicep turned a deep purple.

 Rhodes bit down and overcame the pain to secure a third consecutive win over Rollins.

Rhodes and Rollins closed out Hell in a Cell with a banger, but credit also goes to the three women who opened the program.

The American Nightmare won that contest and began his stated march toward one day becoming WWE champion, but Rollins was unwilling to let it go and wanted to get revenge on his rival.

The Visionary had that opportunity at WrestleMania Backlash, claiming he would beat Rhodes in the rematch since he had ample opportunity to prepare for his opponent.

Instead, the former All Elite Wrestling star defeated the former universal champion again, this time while holding his trunks during a pinning combination as a means of trying to get back at his opponent for doing the same.

The manner in which Rhodes won only served to infuriate The Visionary even more, and it led to the escalation of their feud with both Superstars agreeing to settle things inside Hell in a Cell.
