Re: Dashing Cody Rhodes = Fail

This gimmick would work if he was better on the mic and was more charismatic.

He's still better than Ted though.

Nonsense. There's nothing gay whatsoever about his character. In fact, in practically every segment he talks specifically about attracting "the opposite sex." If it feels close to the "homo side," whatever that is, that's probably more a reflection of the person watching than of Cody or the segments.


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

Re: Dashing Cody Rhodes = Fail

HOMO? WTF has he ever done anything to seem like he is attracted to men? I will only go as far as saying his grooming promos are funny. The moment he actually starts grooming a man then we can post a homo thread about chody.

I'm seriously marking out huge for Dashing Cody Rhodes. I always knew he would go farther than Ted Jr., and this new gimmick has me very entertained. Incorporate the above ideas and this could be a long term angle that might even take Cody to main event status considering SD's weak main event scene and declining/retiring stars (Undertaker, Kane etc.)

Booked properly and Cody could make this into something huge IMO

Re: Dashing Cody Rhodes = Fail

Codys got that skin tag by his eye and he keeps going on about how hes 100% perfect and unblemished. Plus his hair looks like its made out of some weird material. Plus he's got that ridiculous nose stud.

Good gimmick.. poor choice of guy to give it to

Re: Dashing Cody Rhodes = Fail

I really dislike the guy's current gimmick, I just don't know why. I can see he actually has talent and potential, but I just don't like him. Even with the other heels, I mark for them, but I can also enjoy being entertained at their expense, but Rhodes is a borderline turnoff.

If anything is wrong with Rhodes, its that he isn't really making any of the more sympathetic guys look good and actually has to be put over at their expense, but he isn't particularly prone to embarrasment considering just how naturally uncredible he is. Practically every other heel on both rosters is embarrased even semi-frequently aside from Barrett, but Rhodes (and McIntyre to a lesser extent) either make the lower-end opponents they are facing come off worse, or are marginalized by their uppermidcard/ME opponents to the point of utter irrelavency.

He's not talented enough to make me cheer for him despite being heel and he just naturally comes off as a weakling, but I never really get to derive enjoyment from seeing him get embarrased which makes him boring to watch.

Re: Dashing Cody Rhodes = Fail

I agree with the OP, the guy has so much tellent. I think this gimmick is holding him back, it either needs to be spiced up or dropped.
