Why Cody Rhodes Should Win the Royal Rumble.

Ian HarrisonCorrespondent IJanuary 6, 2009

Like many people, I think the WWE's scene is getting stale. We see the same crap every week. But the question is, how do you switch it up? Sit back and relax, here is the best move the WWE could make.

On January 25, Detroit, Michigan, will be host to one of the WWE's biggest pay-per-views: Royal Rumble. Every year there is a number of people who say their choice is not only going to happen, but it's also the best option. Well, here is this year's.

WWE, you need to have Cody Rhodes win the Royal Rumble this year—but not by doing the face-turn crap we always see with heels. You need to put Cody Rhodes over Randy Orton as the top heel. In fact, have Cody Rhodes throw him out.

"But Cody Rhodes has no drawing power. Why have him in the main event at Wrestlemania?"

Just because he wins the match doesn't mean he is the main event. In fact, it doesn't assure him a title match at all.  In 1997, when Steve Austin won the Royal Rumble, who got the title shot at Wrestlemania?  The Undertaker, that's who.  Why? Just because the WWE says something is going to happen, doesn't mean they deliver.

They use their story lines to manipulate what they promised.

So have Cody Rhodes win the Royal Rumble.  Why is this so monumental?

Who gets the biggest cheers on Raw? On average, it's Randy Orton.

Think about it: What does the massive heel turn for Cody Rhodes do to Randy Orton? It enables the WWE to make Orton the biggest face in the business since Austin retired.

He has all the ingredients needed. He is cocky. He is good looking. He has moderate to good skills, and guess what, the fans think he's a badass, so they'll jump on board.

Well thanks for reading.

Ian.
