Number 10: The Turn To Ted
Cody Rhodes was in a tag team with Hardcore Holly and began to learn the ropes from the veteran. This got us to a point where Cody was beginning to take more risks in the ring and more opportunities. When Ted DiBiase debuted, he wanted the tag team championships but did not have a partner. He teased his partner debuting and taking the titles away from the faces. At Night of Champions, Rhodes turned his back on Holly and joined forces with DiBiase in a shocking twist. Not many people saw this coming and was the first big step to something better. He lost the titles and won them, in a strange way, in the same night. A new partner gave Rhodes much more exposure and WWE relied in young guys to carry an entire division.
