Cody Rhodes' Loss to the Big Show: A Step Backward

With Cody Rhodes losing the Intercontinental Championship to the Big Show at WrestleMania 28, many people think that it will move Rhodes into the World Heavyweight Championship picture. But in reality, that is not the case in my opinion and here's why.
Even though a babyface currently hold the World Heavyweight Championship (that being Sheamus), it does not necessarily mean that Rhodes is the likely challenger.
What people keep forgetting is that the 2012 WWE Draft will be taking place on a very special three-hour Monday Night RAW on Monday, April 23rd and I have Rhodes going to the RAW brand.
By getting drafted to the red brand, it would mean that Rhodes would have to tend with other top heels (i.e., Daniel Bryan [should he be drafted], Mark Henry [should he be drafted], Kane, Dolph Ziggler, and Jack Swagger [should they not be drafted]). As a result, this would put Rhodes in contention for the United States Championship.
In addition, I see the likes of The Miz and Alberto Del Rio getting drafted to SmackDown which will give Sheamus some much worthy opponents for the World Heavyweight Championship.
In other words, the future does not look good for the Dashing One.
