CODY RHODES – ONE STEP DOWNcody rhodes

I'm not near the fan of Cody Rhodes that some of you are, but even I can say that he's deserving of more than Sin Cara.

I'm a firm believer of wrestlers having a role or place within the company. Those roles change, for some. Cena will always be near the top, but Rhodes' status could vary from time to time.

A step back can be fine when it's short-lived, and followed by something more favorable. Rhodes' program with Sin Cara is already taking too long. What's next better be good for Rhodes once this is done.

Quick aside: It was fun to see Heath Slater get a win out of this feud. At least someone benefits. And Slater has turned into someone I don't necessarily look forward to each week, but enjoy when he's there.
