Cody Rhodes is on cloud nine after coming out as the winner of the 2023 Royal Rumble. The American Nightmare will have fans swarming for his merchandise due to his recent return, and they’ve already sold ton. However, the number of products sold in his name by WWE is ridiculous, and he had to warn fans about how the company plans to capitalize on his pec injury.

Cody Rhodes was a part of the post-show press conference at the 2023 Royal Rumble. He addressed the bout and subsequent things related to the high-intensity match. He later went on to announce that WWE is releasing new merchandise in the near future.

Cody Rhodes suffered a new injury at the WWE Royal Rumble premium live event, but it was only popped eardrums. WWE now plans to release merchandise themed around his previous pectoral injury. He preemptively asked his fans to not get annoyed when those products are out for sale.

“I went out and I was in there with an unbelievable wrestler in Seth Rollins, an unbelievable Superstar. I’m glad people like it [the match with Rollins]. Please don’t get irritated with the amount of merchandise that’s going to come out around that pec, ’cause by god, y’all … if you thought my AEW figures were bad, whew, we’re buckling up. It’s really cool, but I hope people don’t get too annoyed with it. I’ve never watched it back [his match with Rollins], I never will watch it back,”


During Hell in A Cell Premium live event last year, Cody faced Seth Rollins in a heated matchup. Cody previous tore his pectoral muscle off the bone, but he still wrestled the match with a purple chest. During the match, Rhodes and Rollins went ham at each other inside the steel structure and the former suffered an injury. Despite the gruesome-looking injury, he put on a heroic performance and won the match.

At the 2023 Royal Rumble, Cody Rhodes admitted to having his eardrums popped during the event. He told the camera behind the scenes to not tell anyone about the injury and not make a medical report. He couldn’t hear much, but felt a fair amount of high when people cheered for his win.

The American Nightmare entered the Men’s Royal Rumble match at number 30. Cody lasted over 15 minutes before eliminating Gunther for the win. He will now challenge the world champion at the main event of WrestleMania 39. Only time will tell what’s next for Cody Rhodes, but he certainly has a lot of merchandise on the way.
