ROH Champion Cody Rhodes recently spoke with The New York Post ahead of tonight’s ROH Final Battle PPV, and below are some interview highlights:
On the recent indy movement in pro wrestling:
“I don’t necessarily like that word [movement], but this is kind of a Renaissance era in our industry and we’ve been tasked — I don’t think we took the task — I think we’ve been tasked, me, Matt, Nick, Marty, Hangman, that group is leading this thing as we go.”
On Bullet Club merch vs WWE merch:
“[WWE is] the biggest global conglomerate. They’re unreal. But I can’t help but see more of our stuff in the crowd than their stuff,” said Rhodes, whose group reportedly sold more than 400,000 t-shirts at Pro Wrestling Tees in the last four months.
“I know the numbers at the store that sells both of our merchandise and they’re not even close. … They have some amazing, amazing talent, but I don’t think when we’re together [the Bullet Club], I don’t think anyone can touch the group we have, that kind of being the elite group.”
