Cody Rhodes Takes Pro Wrestling ‘All In’
If you know anything about pro wrestling history, you know the name Rhodes.
The great Dusty Rhodes was one of the most legendary figures in wrestling history. Not just for his work in the ring, but as a promoter and visionary. He built iconic matches, events, and pay-per-views over three decades.
His sons have become wrestling icons in their own ways. His son Dustin is known professionally as 'Goldust', and is a future WWE Hall of Fame member. His other son, Cody, had a terrific WWE career as well. Though not as long as his brother's, Cody chose to walk away from WWE on his own.
Since then, he's worked to build an independent wrestling empire.
Cody has made a name in the US, and overseas, as one of the best pro wrestlers working today. But now he's moving into another aspect of the business...promoting.
Following in his father's footsteps, Cody has turned into a wrestling promoter with tonight's independent pay-per-view, All In.
The All In event will be the biggest Non-WWE pro wrestling event in the US since WCW went out of business. Over 10,000 tickets are sold, and the online pay-per-view rates will likely be bigger than anyone expected when the project was first announced.
This isn't just some small high school gym show either. Just look at the card for tonight's show:
