(I'm not sure how we got here... but Cody Rhodes might end up being the most influential wrestler of this time)

(That said, he's been tremendous as a heel and what he's done is a great roadmap for anyone who can't get into WWE)

(That also said, he's back in the WWE within 24 months)



Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

I’ve always liked Cody, and while he’s mostly the beneficiary of a great Hot Topic deal with Bullet Club/NJPW, I’m impressed by how he’s been able to work it after leaving WWE. Even with the stupid name since he can’t use “Rhodes” and won’t use “Runnels.”

If they unveil the anti-drug bear as CM Punk in Chicago, you will hear that crowd through your bedroom windows.

I have high hopes for this show. There's so much talent outside the WWE, and Cody and the Young Guns know and work with so much of them.

If I'm the WWE/Hunter, I try to dip my toe in this for cool points. Send along someone who has a good reputation with ROH. Maybe if they re-sign Daniel Bryan...

I’ll tell you what about Cody. The guy was The Northeast Wrestling Champion for close to a year and would work their tiny 300 person building after coming back from Japan and doing ROH shows, so I admire him for his work ethic. I’ll tell you another thing he is way too in your face and nowhere near as clever as he thinks he is. I’ve decided after going back and forth on him more than any other wrestler that I’ll just take the good with the not so good. Cody is one giant eye roll emoji.

I have no idea what to expect from this show. I don’t think they sell 10,000 seats. Other than Bryan and Punk, and I think it would take both of them, who else could you bring in?

I’ve been to really ambitious baseball stadium shows and the most I’ve seen is about 3000 and that had The Bucks, Mysterio, Hardy, Del Rio, Samoa Joe, Dijak.

We should all want this show to succeed, just to open up other wrestling avenues.

I’m really hoping it is Super Fan Dave Meltzer

Even if it would help, I would think they'd reject taking someone from WWE just to prove they could do it without their help. The most important thing here is not to lose their houses on this but the second most important is to show they can do it themselves. They're going to have a tremendous amount of leverage on whatever they want to do next if they pull this off, and so they probably want to do it with as few asterisks as possible.

The Ringer has a really good Cody story.

This inspired me to check out their youtube show.

Being The Elite seems pretty fun. Would not have expected Cody's current look, but it works.

I'm guessing what that show didn't have was the sort of buzz that would result in it having a thread on this board, and they haven't even announced the card yet. I think there are 10,000 people willing to travel to Chicago for this show just to feel like they're flipping off Vince McMahon and Dave Meltzer.

The Ringer did an outstanding profile on Cody and his relationship with Dusty: https://www.theringer.com/2018/3/6/17072332/cody-rhodes-dusty-rhodes-all-in

I think they'll get the 10k because 1-BC is hot (wouldn't be shocked if they plan the end of the Cody-Omega saga for that show) and 2-a lot of ppl will want to be in on the experience.

with it being in Chicago, I guess some will go just because they don't want to miss out on the chance that Punk is there.

The one thing that they need to try and do is sign some unexpected people. I mean, not just ROH/NJPW guys who you've seen fight one another before. Contact ANY available guy.
Include a fan fest with the ticket to meet some older guys.
It might be the clincher for some people to go and see it.

Yes, Pee Wee Herman is culturally relevant in 2010. E: and based on the link above I guess I'm not being sarcastic!
