Stars in Progress: Aces & Eights, Cody Rhodes, Sheamus vs Alberto Del Rio


Don't miss an all-new Voice of Wrestling show, hosted by me and Nick Paglino, live tomorrow night from 6:30-7:30 EST. In addition to the usual wrestling discussion, we'll also be joined by John Philapavage of the new Kickstarter project for a documentary on Extreme Championship Wrestling. And as always, I'll be back with VOW Reaction immediately following Raw as well. Visit for details.


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.
