The impending WWE big event The Royal Rumble is now generating an incredible amount of excitement among wrestling fans as the time for the event approaches. Corey Graves has revealed that he is putting his money on none other than Cody Garrett Runnels Rhodes.
Since its inception in 1988, the Royal Rumble has been widely regarded as one of the most exciting and entertaining pay-per-view events produced by World Wrestling Entertainment. This year’s version of the annual wrestling event will be the 36th one, and it will feature a great number of top wrestlers, including Cody Rhodes.

Matthew Polinsky, better known by his ring name Corey Graves, gave an interview in which he discussed his thoughts on who might win The Royal Rumble. Without a shadow of a doubt, the retired wrestler placed his bets on Cody.
”We know we’re going to see some superstars show up that maybe we haven’t seen in a while or thought we’d never see before. Now the fact that Cody Rhodes is in The Royal Rumble automatically puts him in the top three, maybe five favorites to win the thing. Period.”

Corey provided an additional explanation as to why he believes Cody is the favorite to win among the many other well-known wrestlers who will be wrestling in the squared circle that night
“You can’t bet against Cody. What we saw at H*ll in a Cell, solidified that. You should believe in Cody because no one believes more than Cody. And that comes through our screens. And I think you’ve got to talk about Cody as a favorite to win the thing.”
