Re: Please explain why Cody Rhodes deserves to be a legit main eventer?

well cody doesn't really stand out in any of the skills people here discuss about. He doesn't have IT.

I agree with some that he has promo skills and solid inring skills, however I think he lacks some charisma and presence that would make him a bonafide main eventer.

A new gimmick is his only chance i guess. And that has to be one good gimmick for him really get over.

i don't get it either. No charisma, average mic skills and average wrestler.

Re: Please explain why Cody Rhodes deserves to be a legit main eventer?

Cody is one of the best overall talents in WWE. Very good on the mic. Underrated by a lot of people. He's a very good ring worker. Nothing flashy but he's athletic, good ring psychology & technique. He has a great look too. No way is he too small considering the current WWE Champion is CM Punk.

People need to stop using the word "Charisma" when they don't know what it means. Heels aren't supposed to be charismatic. You want them booed. Not cheered.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!

He doesn't. At least not now. A few years down the line maybe, but right now he's just too generic, boring and average in every aspect of wrestling. I agree that Sandow totally overshadows him, but that's to be expected with how much greater of a talent Sandow is.

Re: Please explain why Cody Rhodes deserves to be a legit main eventer?

Cody has no weak areas decent look, decent mic skills, decent in the ring but what he excels at is having a gimmick to work with proven with his dashing gimmick and masked gimmick now and now he doesn't have one making him nothing special. Its like having a great mic worker but never giving him the mic it is bad booking as you aren't playing to the wrestlers skills which is exactly what they are doing with Rhodes. Anyway...my point is that main eventer have to be good overall and have next to weak areas which Cody is but I don't think he is ready just yet and the midcard needs talented midcarders at the moment plus I am enjoying his team with Sandow(as it keeps Sandow relevant whilst they push others which is nothing but good as I would hate for Sandow to be lost in the shuffle and Rhodes will only improve with Sandow at his side).

What's his gimmick? Oh, right, forgot he doesn't have one.

He is directionless. Doesn't stand out in any way (except the mustache)

I like Cody, but at this point nobody should care about him as a single's competitor.

Because he's good at being a wrestler.

the only time the crowd has ever seemed to care about him is just because he looks like a goof with a mustache.
That's true if you started watching wrestling five minutes ago...

lmao your thinking is very disturbing dude but i do agree that he needs an actual gimmick instead of playing bootleg to sandow ...i loved his grotesque\undashing gimmick he plays a disturbed individual very well imo

The fact that his act is always changing should tell you something.

Re: Please explain why Cody Rhodes deserves to be a legit main eventer?

I like him and I think he's doing a good job. That being said, a main event run right now wouldn't make much sense. I'd rather see him develop a legacy (no pun intended) in the midcard, working his way up and solidifying himself up there instead of doing one of those push/pull pushes WWE loves. Give him some defining moments and such before just pushing him into the main event.
