The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes are planning something big for 2018. Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned the Bullet Club members are in talks with multiple venues to put on a 10,000 seat event.

As you may recall,The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer tweeted earlier this year saying ROHwouldn’t sell out a 10K seat show “any time soon” and Cody responded saying he’d “take that bet.”

 Sources tell us the wrestler has been dedicated to making it happen since, so the trio recently decided to take things into their own hands by self-financing the event — which is tentatively being called “All In” — and things have been rapidly progressing the past few weeks towards an official announcement.

 Cody tweeted a photo last weekend showing the group on a scouting mission with Marty Scurll.

We’re told the current front-runner locations for the show are Chicago, London, San Francisco and Ontario, California (where Bullet Club’s WWE invasion took place).

Our sources say Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson and Rhodes are looking to partner with ROH, who they have exclusive domestic contracts with, but it’s unclear if an official deal has been worked out yet.

Cody’s “Spend it Now, Make More Later” catchphrase has never been more appropriate.

"Come to this great wrestling show so CODY WE CAN PUT A 10000 SEAT EVENT!"


This is wrong on so many levels I can`t even feel disgustipated.

Good for them. I hope it's a huge success. These guys are everything right about the wrestling business and a million times better businessmen and human beings than anyone in wrestling during Jim Cornette's era.

The plan is for them to have CODY vs. Bryan Danielson for the ROH title and to have talent from ROH/NJPW and possibly a few freelancers on one big card.

Cody started calling Danielson out a few months ago on ROH shows and social media and I figured he was working his own angle.  If they can get him, they'll do 10,000 easy.  If it falls through and WWE convinces him he's crazy for coming back, I hope they have a solid Plan B.  But I think Danielson is very close to a done deal.

They won't need a Plan B. Danielson will do this in a heartbeat.  No way he resigns with WWE. He has the Sickness and needs to wrestle.

Chicago has three roughly 10,000 seat venues they could approach. The new Wintrust Arena just opened at the McCormick Place Convention Center as a home to DePaul Basketball and the WNBA Chicago Sky. Given the demographic for indy wrestling, the location in proximity to lots of South Loop bars and restaurants would be attractive for a Saturday show. The configuration also brings the fans close to the action. The UIC Pavilion is still around and is getting fewer bookings these days due to increased competition. It once hosted AWA, WWF, JCP, and WCW. Being on a college campus, I'm not sure about beer sales. Sears Centre is in the far northwestern suburbs. It's only a dozen years old and is very modern although not as fancy as an NBA or NHL building, but is a good minor league sports venue. It's sort of the in middle of nowhere, but has a couple of bars/restaurants nearby and plenty of parking with room to do some sort of official tailgate if a sponsor can be found.

You think there's any shot if they do it in Chicago that they get CM Punk to show up? Not for a match, just to show up.

is There a legal reason why he wouldn’t wrestle or does he take his retirement seriously?

He's still under contract to UFC now and there's been a lot of talk just this past week that he's training for his second fight.  Dana White is meeting him any day now.  But he hasn't shown the slightest interest in returning to wrestling at all.

Wintrust would be perfect and is what immediately popped into my head.

Putting this in perspective, Hammerstein Ballroom’s capacity is 2,200 (not sure the exact number for wrestling), so they will have to draw more than 4 times that number in a market other than NY than ROH’s biggest shows.

Maybe if they did it in California and had some top lucha matches on the card.

It’s tough to draw in California; I don’t see them getting more than 5k in a building in California.
PWG and PCW both run stacked shows and can’t even touch that number.

They might need to piggyback on a WWE event or big fan convention to get out-of-towers. Not WM because that’s over-saturated already. Maybe Summerslam.
