Both Joey Ryan and Cody are on the injured list at the moment. That didn’t stop them from having a match for World Series Wrestling in Melbourne, however. In fact, Cody put his IWGP United States title on the line.
The catch is the match was contested under “staring contest” rules.

World Series Wrestling was founded in 2005 by Adrian Menara. They often bring in several big names for their tours. Much of WSW’s content can be seen on the Global Wrestling Network streaming service which is largely associated with Impact Wrestling.
Cody vs Joey Ryan – IWGP United States Championship – Staring Contest Rules
Cody tore his meniscus at the Global Wars: Buffalo show earlier this month. He was then unable to make his planned title defense against Beretta on the final night of the tour in Toronto.
Joey Ryan tore his pec recently (something he mentioned has been going around). Ryan wrestled with his arm in a sling at the last MLW show where he teamed with Swoggle under the team name “Size Matters”.
Cody will go into the final weeks of the year working injured at ROH’s Final Battle. He will be in the main event against Jay Lethal for the ROH World Championship.
