Number 8: The Road To The IC Title
It was only a matter of time until Cody Rhodes would capture his first championship in WWE. Although his feud with Ezekiel Jackson is forgotten, his championship reign should not be. Rhodes defeated Jackson on Smackdown in August and would ultimately begin his split with DiBiase. Cody and Ted were so similar in how they were brought up that only one would have much success. DiBiase and Rhodes split, ending Legacy. It would be at Night of Champions where Rhodes and DiBiase squared off for the IC title. Rhodes would win this match and really begin to show fans that he is the one that is built for long term success in the WWE.
