He definitely has his father's toughness. If it is a minor concussion he will bounce back soon, but the shoulder injury is more detrimental to him.
I like how you described the concussion, spot on. Cody does have his fathers toughness as well, he carried on that match like a champ even though he was out of it, a true professional. He did the exact same thing when Orton legit busted him open and carried on like it was nothing.
