That top pic is actually from like 2009.

Here is a pic of him from 2011



He is bigger now but not as much as your post implied.
This pic is with dimmed light in a position that accentuates his arms. Here is a pic of him, again in 2012 from a somewhat similar stance, the difference is incredible compared to the pic, despite the normal lightning:



And other one:



And this is "undashing" Cody Rhodes with his mask:




Here vs Mysterio in their feud last year:



Those are just randomly browsed pics and the difference is enormous no matter how you look at it unless you're using pics of him flexing or dark lights from 2011 and comparing them to him unflexed and with normal lightning in 2012. He's been riding the bicycle hard in the last 9 months or so.

With Rhodes, the thing I've noticed is his increasingly pronounced forehead ridge.

And how many banned substances on the Wellness Policy can you get a legit doctor's prescription for?

The most common in UFC (for comparison) are:

1. Marijuana. Easy to get an RX in a state like California.
2. Testosterone. Pretty easy to an RX in any state. Many guys use steroids, which then screws up their normal testosterone production. When they go off the steroids they test low for testosterone, go to a doc and get an RX for testosterone.

Not sure what else is banned that you can easily get an RX for. Obviously not harder drugs like cocaine. Prescription narcotics would be hard to believe. If you have an injury that requires heavy duty RX narcotics then you shouldn't be in the ring.

I can easily imagine WWE guys having to be on testosterone replacement therapy. It's legal and the same loophole lots of UFC guys go through.

Steroids are used all the time for many conditions. They are very good against inflammation -- rashes, asthma and the like. A lot of people with tumors take steroids cause they help slow the growth of the tumors.

So a temporary illness or medical condition could easily require temporary steroid usage. Of course, many of those conditions would make it really hard to be an in-ring performer.

And most conditions that would require long term steroid use would likely make the person so sick they couldn't possibly be a pro wrestler. Steroids help elderly people with diseases that cause them to lose muscle mass, for example.

Low testosterone is the big exception. And low testosterone in a young, healthy male athlete is likely due to past steroids abuse.

so in other words, as I suspected a long time ago the reason Cody blew up 15-20lbs of muscle in the last year or so was the juice. lots of people said I was wrong.. the fact is if you know how the god damn human body works, a trained athlete can't suddenly put on a ton of mass without gaining fat at the same time. any time an athletic person who is already weight-trained and made their noob gains in the past, magically gains lean mass with no fat, its steroids 9/10 of the time.

The dirty little secret is that any dude you see that is ripped whether it be wrestling, body building, football, baseball, basketball, etc, all got that way with steroids. Its just not possible without them.

SuperLuchas.net reports WWE performer Cody Rhodes recently tested positive on a drug test for a banned substance but was cleared after providing a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician.

Prior to being cleared, it would appear that Rhodes believed he was facing suspension. He cryptically wrote May 21 on Twitter: "Time off." He appeared at the following day's SmackDown taping in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and subsequent shows since then.

The website also reports that another WWE performer whose name has not been disclosed recently had a positive drug test and will be suspended if a valid prescription is not produced.

WWE announced Wednesday that Randy Orton had been suspended for 60 days for his second violation of the company's Talent Wellness Program. SuperLuchas.net reports the suspension stems from a positive drug test for the anabolic steroid Dianabol, which is banned by the United States Congress under it Controlled Substances Act. He also reportedly tested positive for marijuana, which is subject to a $2,500 fine.

Once again, there is no confirmation to these rumors yet so take it for what it’s worth.
Why post this stuff before you read it?
