It looks like Bullet Club members Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks are very serious in proving the critics wrong about Ring of Honor not selling out a large area. For 15 years since its inception, ROH has found a niche in attracting smaller crowds, with this year’s Supercard of Honor being one of their biggest attendance numbers at 3,500.
Recently, Cody had a heated exchange with WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns. Starting from Cody stating that he is the biggest draw in pro wrestling, to a fan sending it over to Reigns and him responding that it does not matter if that number is under 100,000, Rhodes would extend this feud to a promo, talking about Reigns’ failed drug test and vest.
In a very bold move, Cody and the Young Bucks are planning to self-finance a 10,000 seat event in 2018, as reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet. The locations currently considered are Chicago, London, San Francisco, and Ontario, California (where Bullet Club created the controversy which led to the cease and desist letter from WWE). The three are also looking for ROH to partner with them.
Cody commenced on the project, “We can’t comment officially until we confirm the location, but we are far enough in the process to say it’s happening. In 2018. And we are swinging for the da** fences… dare to Dream.”
Cody posted a picture with the #ROH10000 inside an arena with the Young Bucks and Marty Scurll.

Both Cody and the Young Bucks are naming this endeavor, “ALL IN.”
