In the buildup to All In, the independent wrestling event starring Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks, Rhodes has released a new T-Shirt collection on Pro Wrestling Tees.
One shirt, which reads “Daddy Eats First,” is a reference to comments made by Rhodes regarding his upcoming triple threat title match against ROH World Champion Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll, and how in the past year he's become “the brand” for Ring of Honor. "My mere presence means this is not an amateur show anymore," Rhodes said. "I'm the guy responsible for filling the bellies of everybody waving the banner of Ring of Honor. I am Daddy and Daddy eats first."
On Twitter, Rhodes retweeted the following video telling all wrestlers, "Get on my level. You're all so far behind. Regards, Daddy."
Dear all wrestlers everywhere,— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) June 6, 2018
Get on my level. You're all so far behind.
All In has one confirmed singles match between Nick Aldis and Rhodes for the NWA World’s Heavyweight Championship. The card will also feature professional wrestlers from the independent circuit, New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Ring of Honor (ROH), promotions which both The Young Bucks and Rhodes and Young Bucks are affiliated with. The event is the first non-WWE or WCW professional wrestling event in the United States to sell more than 10,000 tickets since 1993.
After a fan asked Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer on Twitter if Ring of Honor could sell 10,000 tickets, Meltzer answered "not any time soon," which Rhodes took as a challenge, responding "I'll take that bet, Dave." Not only did the event sell more than 10,000 tickets, it did so in less than half an hour on May 13. To honor the event’s success, Rhodes released a T-shirt with a Michael Jordan-inspired bear wearing a “Sold Out - 10K” shirt.
Rhodes was recently featured on WAGS Atlanta, a spin-off of WAGS, which chronicles the professional and personal lives of “wives and girlfriends of high-profile sportspersons” in Atlanta. Rhodes appeared alongside his wife Brandi, who made her Ring of Honor debut last summer.
