Well yeah, a guy with poor in ring skills can become champion but that has a big effect imo on whether or not they're a good one or bad one.

I don't know about main eventer, but Cody is good enough to be featured prominently. I thought they really had something with his IC Title reign heading into Wrestlemania and they should have run with that. But no...Big Show needed a Wrestlemania moment...or something.

I am liking Team Rhodes Scholars. I think they're great, and I'd like to see them get featured heavily on a consistent basis.

How is Cody Rhodes a 'small guy'? He's taller than Cena, and fairly sturdy in his build. I can see why he'd want to hold off on getting bigger, considering the physiques of his brother & father.

Cody is a solid performer, and solid on the mic. But that's kinda it. Nothing about him really stands out. From his generic in-ring abilities to his even more generic look. The mustache helped somewhat, but having a stache doesn't make you a top guy. While I think Cody is talented, at the moment he is not ready to be a main eventer in my opinion. I do think he will get there if he sticks with it and is consistently trying to improve on all aspects. But right now he is still pretty young, and I think it's best he work in the midcard for a bit longer.

I think he could be a big babyface one day simply out of following in his father's footsteps. He's talented enough on the mic, that if he adopts more of a good-guy persona, I think he'd be popular.

I'm no Rhodes mark, but I give him credit where it's due. One of his best matches was against Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania 27. I know Rey could put on a clinic with just about anyone, but I feel Rhodes deserves as much credit. I wouldn't have expected these two to put on a better match than everyone else barring Taker/Trips.

Hes a solid star not a breakout one. I just cant see a scenario where he gets hot climbs the ladder and knock off a world champion and then be "the guy" its not happenin for codey. IC or US champ? completely! even tag champ would be a solid route for him, if he were to get a partner that they could cut a solid angle with. but as for being a top guy sorry i just dont see it

I think Cody Rhodes could be WWE Champion, but he'd be just that. He'd be the guy you can put the belt on while something else is the main focus like The Rock, Brock Lesnar, or Nexus.

I see Cody as a very strong mid carder, and i think he should stay on this level for a couple of years. WWE needs a strong mid card heels like Cody, plus he can feud with more young talents now than being in ME picture

He shouldn't be a main eventer... yet. Not next week, next month, next 2 months, next 5 months, etc. BUT, they should push him a little more. Because to be honest, the tag team division is somewhat boring right now at the moment with The Shield "injuring" Rey or Cara, and not to mention I feel like I only see 2 or 3 actual tag teams on the shows lately + Team Hell No wear those penny belts just so people know that they're still the champions DESPITE not defending it ever and teaming with Ryback, and beating 3MB in a less than 4 minute match instead.

They should eventually break up Cody & Sandow but not do the typical "let's break them up by making one of them turn babyface" type of break up because none of them should be babyfaces, it wouldn't work at all. But anyways, yeah, eventually break up RS and have them part ways, and push both of them or just Cody up a little more but not at the point where you have him gunning for the WHC. Sure, you could add him to the SD Elimination Chamber WHC match and have him be filler in WHC matches once in a while (like how Jericho was at OTL last year lol), but that's it.

Eventually he should be a main eventer, though. Just not this year. Maybe later this year, after Summer, like, maybe tease it? I don't know. Just push him up a bit more in the midcard so that way when he does eventually gun for the WHC and become a main eventer, people know he's not to be trifled with, and that you should take him seriously (despite the pedophile-stache).

But that's just me rambling. Trust me though, I do like Cody, I think he's a solid competitor, not a big fan of the Cross Rhodes finisher, but other than that, I like him, he's decent on the mic, in fact, I can barely even hear the lisp that everybody bitches about when it comes to Cody.

yes he indeed has a lisp, but a speech impediment didn't prevent his father from being multiple world champion. However cody doesn't have main event qualities because he just doesn't stand out.
