In Payback we witnessed the promise Cody Rhodes made to Goldust. He said that if they lost against Rybaxel then he will leave and Goldust has to find another partner. Sadly we saw Rybaxel defeats again the Brotherhood and officially ending his partnership. It is sad to watch the Brotherhood split because last year they delivered one of the best matches in Raw history and they defeat The Shield. They were a fundamental part of Daniel Bryan vs The Authority storyline. Even their father, WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes was in their corner. After they won it was one of the most beautiful family moments in the WWE history. Sadly the good things don’t last forever. The question is: what will happen with Cody Rhodes after he split with Goldust?
Cody Rhodes character should have depression right now. He has a big losing streak and he feels angry and sad. He feels like he doesn’t have what it takes to be a great WWE Superstar and most importantly a future Hall of Famer. Now that Cody Rhodes is depressed who should help him? No other than the inspirational Bo Dallas, member of the Bolieve Movement. We also witnessed in Payback when Bo Dallas made inspirational comments to Kofi Kingston about how he will recover of his beating courtesy of Kane. Right now Cody Rhodes has two paths: continue to be a babyface or a heel turn. It will be interesting what WWE make with this storyline. Maybe he will be Bo Dallas tag team partner and they both be the Inspirationals or maybe he will take a darker path and blame Goldust for their losses. Then attack his brother and challenge him to a match at Money in the Bank. I think the last one will be a mistake. Let’s me explain. Titus O’Neill was the partner of Darren Young. They were a good tag team, but then Titus O’Neill blames Darren Young of their losses. Then he challenged Darren Young and defeated him. After that he has become a jobber. It is sad is Cody Rhodes follow that path because then it will be a recycled storyline and Cody Rhodes will be trapped as a jobber forever.
In conclusion, the company has to make a great decision regarding Cody Rhodes career. He is a young superstar with a ton of talent and he deserves to win more than he is winning right now. After all, a few months ago he was reaching the stars and main eventing in Raw. Now for several weeks he has been jobbing. Let’s hope that the WWE make the right decision and both Cody Rhodes and Goldust career continue to improve.
