BIG SHOW DEFEATS CODY RHODES
Again, looking at the big picture, I'm perfectly fine with Big Show winning the strap from Cody Rhodes. I know most felt going into it that Rhodes should get the win as he needs it more, but I'm not sure that's entirely true.
Big Show is a lot like Kane, in my opinion. Both men have accomplished a lot, but are not as relevant as they used to be. I think the majority of fans appreciate what they do, but not enough to justify either men being in major positions in the company anymore. It's an unfortunate truth.
What does Big Show really have going for him right now? In comparison, Rhodes will have a longer, more productive future going forward.
This loss isn't the end of Rhodes' push. In fact, it could end up helping him more in the end if he regains the IC title from Show rather quickly. I could see it happening at Extreme Rules even.
Some are asking if Rhodes dropping the title could mean he's in line for a major title push. I seriously doubt it, nor do I think he's ready yet. Even further, I'm not sure he'll ever be ready for that. I could be wrong, but I don't see it.
I like where Cody is at right now and I like this win for Big Show. It helps both men with where they are at this moment because I don't think they are done with each other.
