The Many Faces Of Cody Rhodes - From Worst To Best

7. Hardcore Holly's Protege

WWE.com

After doing a whole lot of nothing in his first weeks on WWE TV, Cody would pair up with Hardcore Holly. This came about after Holly defeated Cody in three straight matches, although Cody did manage to win something; Holly's heart.

Okay, not his heart, but Cody did gain the respect of the ornery veteran and the two formed a tag team.

They quickly gained tag team gold, but at this point in his career Cody Rhodes resembled the most hastily put together Create-A-Wrestler imaginable. Everything about him screamed bland, and the only memorable thing about his run with Holly was how it ended.

Cody would turn out to be Ted DiBiase Jr's mystery tag partner at Night of Champions in 2008, ending their 202 day reign. Interestingly enough, as Cody kept the title he held them for 238 days in total, the longest tag title reign for over 10 years at the time.
