What’s being said about Cody Rhodes’ drawing power heading into WWE Wrestlemania 39

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed Cody Rhodes’ drawing power heading into WWE Wrestlemania 39…

“It’s all been successful. You know we talk about nobody being a draw, blah, blah. It’s the brand that draws. Well, he’s a draw. I mean Sami [Zayn] is a draw, obviously these SmackDown ratings, but Cody is a draw. The weekend at house shows in Columbus and Pensacola. The advances were the same, 2000 – 2500 that they do everywhere else. It was lower than usual. They weren’t bad….they were normal advances. Cody wins the Rumble, and then they announce that Cody is working those two shows, and they did the all-time record gates in both cities – Columbus and Pensacola.”

“WWE house shows don’t usually draw like that, so he’s a mover, at least right now and WrestleMania is going to be big. Remember, he was the number merch seller in San Antonio [Royal Rumble].” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
