• Cody Rhodes Is Already Doing Big Numbers For WWE
After Cody Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38, WWE released 3 new T-Shirts for The American Nightmare.
According to PWInsider, all the Cody T-Shirts that were put on sale at the AT&T Stadium and the Superstore Axxess were sold out.
Cody’s return was also one of the reasons why RAW drew its highest viewership in 15 months this week.
This week’s episode of RAW after WrestleMania 38, which featured Cody appearing for the 1st time on RAW since 2016 and Roman Reigns’ 1st appearance as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, drew 2.1 million viewers with a 0.63 rating in the 18-49 demo.
This was RAW’s highest viewership since the January 4, 2021 episode of RAW Legends Night.
This is up from last week’s 1.98 million viewers with a 0.55 rating.
In comparison, RAW after WrestleMania 37 last year drew 2.03 million viewers with a 0.68 rating in the 18-49 demo.
On RAW, Cody revealed that his goal is to go after a Title that no one from his family could win – the WWE Championship.
