Cody Rhodes suffered a torn pectoral muscle before Hell in a Cell that has kept him out of action for a couple of months. Although Rhodes can’t perform now, many are excited about The American Nightmare now that he’s back in WWE. He’s garnered so much interest that even his action figure is selling out.

The Rhodes’ Mattel action figure is reportedly one of the highest pre-orders since WWE began their working relationship with Mattel. According to Fightful, the action figure has sold “incredibly well, very quickly.”

Rhodes returned at WrestleMania earlier this year as the surprise opponent for Seth Rollins. He’d later have two more matches with Rollins, the last one being inside Hell in a Cell. WWE wrote Rhodes off television by having Rollins viciously attack Rhodes’ injured pec.

There have been rumors of Rhodes possibly returning next year at the Royal Rumble. He’s currently a favorite to win the men’s match and has said that he wants to become WWE Champion. With many still interested in The American Dream, who knows how loud of a pop he’ll get if he does return during the Royal Rumble next year.
