Better Wrestler All Time Records (http://tpww.net/forums/showthread.php?t=102087)

Ted DiBiase.

I like both of these guys, and they both have a lot of potential, but my deciding factor was that I seriously cannot stand wrestlers without knee pads!

12-20-2010, 10:09 AM
Oh wow. On one hand you have two guys with unlimited potential, yet on the other, only one has a solid gimmick working for him and amazing mic skills. Both come from amazing backgrounds and could easily be champs one day with the right exposure. Dibiase is one of my favorite guys to watch in ring, but sadly I feel he's stuck in midcard hell right now, while Cody is just increasing his stock day by day.

Sorry to say it, but I've gotta go with the "Dashing" one here.

Ted is better, although Cody is narrowing the gap since their split......

Ultra Mantis
12-20-2010, 10:57 AM
Always preferred Cody, the Dashing gimmick has just solidified that.

12-20-2010, 11:33 AM
I just pray that one day before we all die, we get to see "Dashing" Cody Rhodes and Goldust with Dusty Rhodes vs Ted Dibiase and Bret Dibiase with "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase for the tag titles. That would be amazing.

Dashing Rhodes of Gold vs. The Million Dollar Dibiases

12-20-2010, 11:54 AM
Ted DiBiase is only smoke n' mirrors to me!!!

12-20-2010, 12:07 PM
Dibiase since he has Maryse.

St. Jimmy

Simply Dashing.

12-20-2010, 02:07 PM
Cody Rhodes by a mile.

Always thought Cody was the better wrestler, but that he was a void of charisma and generally looked like a goof. With his new Dashing gimmick he has shown charisma out the wazoo.

12-20-2010, 02:53 PM
Rhodes, because he has charisma coming out his wazoo

12-20-2010, 03:22 PM
Ted DiBiase.

I am down with that... Plus I like watching dibiase a little more...

The Gold Standard
12-20-2010, 04:58 PM
They both stink

12-20-2010, 05:19 PM
Ted Dibiase is the better one of the two and I always felt that way. Cody is good, but I don't find him nearly as talented as Dibiase in the ring. I personally think Dibiase is the one that deserves a push and he is one of my favorite superstars right now. Rhodes is not.

Cody Rhodes.

When they were a tag team and the initial period after the split from Legacy, DiBiase had the better chance and character to be successful since Cody really wasn't doing anything to stand out as a wrestler.

Once Cody got the "Dashing" character and moved to Smackdown, he's been improving faster than Dibiase has been declining. Finisher move and wrestling-wise, DiBiase still has the better finisher and wrestling skills but promos and character-wise, Cody has DiBiase beat.

12-20-2010, 06:56 PM
Cody Rhodes has always been better than Dibiase, in every way possible.

El Tigre
12-20-2010, 07:57 PM
Voting for Cody on this one. Maybe it's due to how he's been used, but Dibiase just hasn't been wowing me lately. It's a shame though because at the beginning of their debuts I figured it would be Ted who would rise to the occasion. On a side note, the gamer inside of me still wishes Cody had developed an angle involving those triforce boots he used to wear. But where he is at this moment works just as well.

12-20-2010, 08:50 PM
No doubt Cody. I don't get what anybody sees in Dibiase, but to each their own.

Anybody Thrilla
12-20-2010, 08:57 PM
This is a good match up. I like both of these guys, but so far, Cody has show me more. That's not really Ted's fault, I think he's about to get a push in the near future, but the Dashing gimmick is just killing right now. I have to give props to Cody.

12-20-2010, 10:46 PM
gotta go with Cody Rhodes

never been all that impressed with Dibiase

12-21-2010, 12:49 AM
All around DiBiase is better as a worker he's just not getting as much of the spotlight atm plus he's a more naturally charasmatic than Cody is with him it just seems so much more forced.

12-21-2010, 02:23 PM
I think they're both the same, but Rhodes has more going for him because his 'Dashing' thing gets him a lot of heat, which keeps him relevant in the WWE's eyes.

DiBiase is just kinda drifting as most mid-carders on Raw do.

12-21-2010, 08:18 PM
My vote is for DiBiase.

12-22-2010, 02:23 AM
I don't get what DiBiase has done to show he's that much better than Rhodes. If anything, they're pretty much on par with each other, wrestling ability wise.

12-22-2010, 09:54 AM
WoW... Surprised that Cody won by so many votes... I like him too, but I thought Dibiase would win this round... Oops...

Anybody Thrilla
12-22-2010, 09:59 AM
It really shouldn't be surprising. TPWW definitely subscribes to the "What Have You Done For Me Lately" theory. Even still, Cody's been just as entertaining if not moreso through his WWE tenure.
