WWE: A Close Look at the Rhodes vs. Big Show Showdown at WrestleMania XXVIII

Cody Rhodes is set to feature in his second straight WrestleMania singles competition this April 1st.

A wrestler with the looks, skill set, and pedigree that Cody Rhodes contains was born for great things in this business, and a victory over the World’s Largest Athlete, the Big Show, at WrestleMania XXVIII is exactly what he needs to propel him on his destined path.

If it was Alberto Del Rio’s destiny to be World Champion, then it is Cody Rhodes' destiny to wrestle the pants off of the Big Show (a sight that possibly no one on this Earth would want to see) and to take his place on the Express Push Bus on which he was destined to ride. 

I realize that the WWE should not be free from criticism. I, much like most WWE fans, would rather see Cody Rhodes put his strong set of wrestling skills to the test against someone more on his level in-ring-wise. Anyone who has watched the Big Show in action recently knows quite well that the man is incapable of putting on a heavily technical match, but we should remember that it is still very well possible for an entertaining match to be had.

Despite many of the obvious drawbacks in the pairing of a technically gifted wrestler such as Cody Rhodes and a big brawler, whining about the match will not help us to enjoy this match any more come WrestleMania XXVIII. For any Cody Rhodes supporter, we should focus on the positives that a victory over the Big Show on April 1 will bring him. Like it or not, this is the match with which we are stuck, so we might as well try and make the most of it.
