As for Cody's charisma, not completely nonexistant, but minimal. Not apparent during either persona, ESPECIALLY UnDashing. When he was UnDashing, he cut the worst promos in the entire company, until they started letting him act like himself again. Cody is the textbook example of the generic, run of the mill CAW wrestler. He is not bad at anything, he is not good at anything, he just...is. His mic work is very average, his charisma is very average, his ring work is very average, and his look is very average.
Disagree, especially on his look, with the right attire he has a great look.



Looked like a main eventer back then, minus the IC Title obviously. He needs to use black knee-pads and boots again, the white ones make him look like a jobber. His mic and ring work are both decent too, if he improves he'll end up being a very complete superstar.

I don't think it's fair to compare him to Sandow, nobody other than Punk and Rock can even match up to Sandow.

Re: WTF is it with WWE burying Rhodes Scholars?

I just wouldn't classify that as a great look. It's fine, but there's nothing about it that screams "main event". I'm sure if you asked a non wrestling fan based on his look, where he was in the company, they'd probably say he was a middle of the pack type wrestler, because that's what he looks like.

Re: WTF is it with WWE burying Rhodes Scholars?

I tend to veer away from replying to Tyrion and thus ignore his hyperbole (is it one 'n' or two? I preferred Pyro for the simplicity', but this is a bit much for me. Cody Rhodes had the worst promos in the entire company? Be real... I realize you have a mancrush on Sandow, which is fine, the guys got it, but what is with this blatant blind Cody hate? The last time Cody didn't have a drop of charisma was when he was in Priceless and everyone thought Ted would be the one who lasted. Cody as both dashing and undashing was a fairly big hit .I would say either of those two gimmicks rival eachother for the time in which Cody was most over. Why do people seem to fear or at least revere Pyro on here? Honestly, all I see are repetitive close minded, whining-centric posts. I'm sure there are reasons why, but as long as I've been on this forum I have yet to see anything but strangely unsound arguments posed in an oddly rational way. Wade Barrett? Mediocre. At least with Sandow I get it. I want to like Wade but they give you little to work with.

So using his theme and him talking is more important than Cody getting ALL of the wins and Sandow taking ALL of the losses, and looking like the worse half of the team? What kind of BS is this?

And by the way, for the first half they were together, they used Cody's theme ANYWAY, so who cares? They're just alternating.


That was a pretty generic, Cody like role. Did he do well with it? Can't remember.

He got almost ZERO tv time and he wasn't ready at that stage, so not really, but it's a completely different time now. This is a hard role to do that he's got now. 95% of people who got this gimmick would be off tv by now.

Rhodes Scholars are not being buried. Take a look at Primo and Epico, that's being buried.

Re: WTF is it with WWE burying Rhodes Scholars?

. yeah obviously they are being 'buried' (jobbing to the point of no return) Obviously, i mean isn't that why they get a segment pretty much every week on Raw and SD? Isn't that why they are challenging for the tag-titles at Royal Rumble? Totally being buried. Idiot.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Re: WTF is it with WWE burying Rhodes Scholars?

If they were being buried, they wouldn't have been given quite a big in ring segment with the Rock on Smackdown a few weeks back, and they wouldn't be getting Title shots. Besides, I think they'll win the Titles at the Rumble.



All Time: Taker/HBK/Punk/Christian
