Five years ago this week, Cody Rhodes competed in his first-ever match on Monday Night Raw. It's amazing to think that these past few years have just flown by since that point in time, as it feels like just yesterday Rhodes was still seen as nothing more than an enhancement talent.
However, the second-generation star has since proven many naysayers wrong, as his evolution over the last five years has seen him grow from just a son of a legend to a tag team wrestler to a solid mid-card act to being on the cusp of the main event.
Following his stellar performance at last Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, there is no doubt in my mind that this young, rising up-and-comer will one day achieve his destiny and become the World Heavyweight Champion.
His rise to the top has been built perfectly, and his time will surely be coming sooner rather than later.
In light of this special anniversary, I'll highlight the top 15 moments in the WWE career of Cody Rhodes over the course of the last five years. One can only assume that these moments are only the beginning of Rhodes' tenure going forward.
