Hello again Bleacher Nation!
It's Joel Brand here and I am excited to be writing about another up-and-coming Superstar on Smackdown's roster. Cody Rhodes, who is most famous for being the son of wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes, has been in the WWE for awhile now. He has held the World Tag Team Championship three times (once with Hardcore Holly and twice with Ted DiBiase.) He has also held the WWE Tag Team Championship with Drew McIntrye on Smackdown.
Rhodes is currently working on his solo career and has ran into a bit of a stale patch. He has been using the "Dashing" gimmick with success lately but it needs a little something extra to really push him into the next level. Vince McMahon clearly sees a lot of potential in him and wants to seem him go far in the business so that is definitely a good sign for him.
Rhodes has the in-ring ability to compete at a high level, the right look to be "the face of the WWE" as he calls himself and tremendous mic skills to cut promos. However, those promos have gotten him in trouble as of late because during a house show he had a promo that included derogatory comments to Hispanics. This hasn't put him in the greatest light but this story is not getting too much publicity so his image hasn't been greatly damaged.
So with all that being said, Cody Rhodes could be making a bigger impact with his career and I have come up with a plan to try and give him some new found pizzazz. The idea for this article was given to me by Rachel Miller in my last article, "10 Reasons Why Kofi Kingston Should Get a Push in 2011." So here is my slideshow on how you revitalize Cody Rhodes and I hope you all enjoy it!
