Cody Rhodes Continues His Quest to Bring Prestige to the Intercontinental Title
Even before Cody Rhodes split with his long time partner and crony Ted DiBiase, Rhodes was claiming he'd be bringing prestige back to the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
The thing is, he hasn't had much of an opportunity to do so.
Rhodes hasn't been a part of the new SuperShow concept, nor did he appear on the live Super SmackDown last week, which is a shame as he's a quality heel with solid in ring skills.
This week, Rhodes should make an appearance, and continue to look to build up the Intercontinental title as a significant, meaningful midcard championship.
Of course, that sounds a lot more genuine and well meaning than it really is. One would have to believe that Rhodes is more interested in "resurrecting" his relevancy than the WWE Intercontinental Championship itself.
One option is that Cody Rhodes could pick up a feud with former friend Ted DiBiase.
Prior to the "break up" between the two, DiBiase had a great match with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, and made a fan out of me with his in ring ability.
The "former ally turned enemy" angle is one that each and every viewer will be familiar with, but it would tie up both of these talented wrestlers while the transition into the "SuperShow era" goes on.
Another possibility would be to introduce a superstar from the Raw roster to feud with Rhodes, and eventually have the Intercontinental title being featured during Raw.
With Rhodes' whole "disfigured" angle, a solid match for him would be John Morrison, who is also in need of some direction.
Regardless of what the WWE decides to do with Rhodes, we should most definitely see him on camera and in action tonight on SmackDown, hopefully setting up a future feud or angle.
