Why do you think Cody Rhodes in particular was chosen for the psychopath angle?

To be honest, in a non-PG world I think derivatives of psychopaths would be a really good and fresh angle for a heel.































But why was Cody Rhodes in particular chosen for this role? Even with all the creative marketing in WWE, I still think they would have gotten more out of it if they had chosen someone more convincing.

I think Rhodes does a fine job at it. He does a lot of subtle things that strike me as natural and disturbing, like always trying to cover his face. It's not even like a violent action, it almost seems like a reflex when he does it. I also dig the gravely voice and the Tyler Durden mentality he's amassed throughout this transformation. I could do without the paper bags and the cheesy laugh, but other than that I think he's doing a fine job with the gimmick.































I think the Dashing thing was a rib to begin with. The kid's pretty goofy looking, but still, he pulled off the prima donna gimmick very well, but I do like where he's going with the crazy gimmick. Considering it's getting him wins over Randy Orton, and perhaps a high profile feud for the IC title against Orton, I think the results speak for themselves. Somebody in the back must like what he's doing.

i think they wanted to use him as a heel to make him as different from his legendary father as possible but it's a big mistake the more evil you are the bigger a beating you will get as time goes on.

He's an upcoming young guy and he can pull it off. Also, it kind of keeps with the family history as his brother (Goldust) was a pretty crazy character. Dustin and Dusty also have jobs backstage and can use their pull to get Cody some good angles.

It was done well by the WWE with him doing all those dashing tips beforehand, hes doing well and his mic skills with that psychopathic voice really sell it but realistically his face would have healed, I think he'll take it off soon and still be a top heel maybe after he wins the WHC.
