If Cody is our of action, then I'm really hoping for a face turn. Although I am very worried a face turn for Rhodes will bomb.
What character would rhodes be able to play as a babyface?
Terrible idea. Rhodes as a face may happen eventually, but right now would just be poor timing. He's so natural in the role as a heel.
Look at The Miz, during his WWE title run for example I would have said the same sort of thing. And the 'eventually' for him is now and most are optimistic about it. Once Rhodes has gone as a far as he can as a heel then try him as face.
I'm just shocked that Rhodes managed to botch a backdrop so badly.
Well it's an example of how difficult it truly is. Even the so-called 'easy' moves aren't actually easy. You could see that with Rhodes Kane did let go earlier than Rhodes expected so he had to change his rotation and he ended up tucking rather than rotating and boom! Bad landing.
