Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show

Alfonso: Cody Rhodes

With so many babyfaces going over in the card, this seems like the ideal opportunity to throw the heels a bone, and give some momentum to one of WWE’s most promising young mid-carders. Big Show won’t be hurt at all by putting Rhodes over in this one, and Rhodes can pick up a fairly important win.

Anthony: Cody Rhodes

Truly one of the more underrated feuds going into ‘Mania. Rhodes has a big future in the WWE and I see him wearing the Intercontinental Title for a while longer. Big Show is like Kane in many ways as a loss really doesn’t hurt his character. Rhodes has done a swell job of showing that in recent weeks. Plus, I just can’t see the Intercontinental Title in the hands of the Big Show. In a way it’s beneath him because he seems more intent on just hurting Rhodes rather than taking his title. Rhodes probably wins dirty.

Seth: Cody Rhodes

I really, really want to see Rhodes retain and then break Honky Tonk Man's record for longest IC Title reign. Perhaps he somehow beats Show and then gets knocked out after the match?

Josh: Cody Rhodes

The anti-streak stuff Rhodes has been doing to highlight Show's WrestleMania failures have been pretty entertaining. Why not put Rhodes over and keep that storyline available for Show in years to come?
