• “I think he would be monster money in WWE now” – Hall Of Famer On Cody Rhodes
During a recent appearance on Vince Russo’s The Bro Show podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page was asked which All Elite Wrestling Superstars would do well in today’s WWE.
Here’s what DDP said:
“The third guy I bring in is Cody Rhodes, who can talk as good or better than anybody in the business and I think he would be monster money there now. He proved what he had to prove. He did it in a big way, and it would be brilliant of them to sign MJF, Britt (Baker), and him.”
Cody Rhodes, one of 2 sons of NWA/WCW/WWF Legend ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, already wrestled for WWE from 2007 until 2016, but hasn’t exactly been anywhere near what anyone would consider ‘a draw’.
