WWE WrestleMania 28: 5 Reasons Why Big Show Will Crush Cody Rhodes
This match needs to get over with already.
I am not sure why I am upset over this one. Maybe because I am more focused on the four other "huge" matches with WrestleMania 28 or that this looks like a joke on television.
But in the end, Big Show must beat the hell out of Cody Rhodes.
Much like Mark Henry beating Randy Orton, the big man must get over again.
Here are the reasons why The Big Show not only needs to win, but must crush the upstart Cody Rhodes.
Too Much One-Sided Abuse
For everything that has been done in this build up, it appears the Big Show has really become the "Big Coward."
Rhodes has basically had his way with Show in backstabbing and then getting over on him. For a man that size and that huge, Rhodes makes it look like child's play.
Has Big Show become the "Big Disappointment"?
Because of all the abuse the Big Show has taken, it is hard to think that he would lie down for Rhodes.
Both should sell for each other and make this a decent match. I am not sure this will be one of those matches we talk about afterward, but both men need to show they can still sell and give the fans what they want.
Rhodes Needs to Move on to Bigger Things
Rhodes, in my opinion, is being held down by the company.
He is way too talented to just hold the Intercontinental Title and the idea of breaking the Honky Tonk Man's streak shows that the writers need a clue as to what makes Smackdown better.
If Rhodes wins, maybe he talks his talents to Monday Night Raw after the draft.
Lifetime Achievements for Big Show
He has been a world title holder and, honestly, a big disappointment in this company because of bad angles and writing (he and Mark Henry).
Giving him the Intercontinental Title is more like a Susan Lucci Lifetime Achievement Award.
Big Show has had his moments, be he truly could have been much better. Rhodes and others have brought out the best in him.
It's the Right Thing to Do
Rhodes needs another angle (Sheamus) and Big Show needs more credibility.
I did not like the match at first and thought it was another one of those odd parings (I still think that it is) but it now makes sense.
This will be a night of four major matches and one needs to set the tone for the evening. This one does that.
While we are not sure where the match falls in line, it could be a very good opportunity for both men to remind the crowds that there are others on the roster who can sell and deliver when they need to.
