While there were many believers who thought that Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks would be able to fill 10,000 seats for their show, almost nobody thought it would sell out within an hour.
Turns out one of the promoters of the event Cody himself didn’t believe it either and he thought they would have to push for the ticket sales to be able to reach their goal.
During his latest appearance on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast, the former ROH World Champion talked about this and said that while in character he was fully confident, he had his doubts as a promoter.
Continuing on the topic, he revealed that they projected low for the first month and they also had an advertising budget to help with the ticket sales:
“I projected low. I thought 4,000 for the first month. And then, after that, we’d roll matches out, we’d push our sponsors. We have a budget for advertising and we didn’t touch that budget, so now we can buy some fireworks or something!”
Apart from this, Cody also recalled Triple H congratulating him on his ROH title victory, how ROH has treated him since his debut with the company and more.
