There Should Be No Rush With Cody Rhodes Career

A lot of wrestling fans have been clamoring for Cody Rhodes to win one of the Money In The Bank Briefcases next month when a Pay-Per-View of the same name takes place.
They want this because being the owner of said Briefcase all but guarantees you are going to win a World Championship very soon, but my reply would be, whats the rush?
Cody Rhodes is going to turn twenty-seven on June Thirtieth and still has a ton of time to continue to mature both in the in the ring and on the microphone. I'm not saying Rhodes isn't good in the ring or on the mic, I am saying that he still has room to improve, which is insane because he is already extremely good and I can't wait to see how good hes going to be.
Lets not forget that over the past number of years WWE has had trouble with their patience as they have pushed numerous wrestlers to the top too fast, with Allberto Del Rio being a recent example. Del Rio is a guy that in his first year and a half on the main roster of the WWE won the 2011 Royal Rumble, 2011 Raw MITB, and WWE Championship twice. That is a very impressive resume and yet Del Rio was and still isn't over with the majority of the fans because he was shoved down their throats repeatedly.
Cody Rhodes is definitely not the same as Alberto Del Rio, but he has only found his niche in the WWE over the past year and I don't want to see the same thing that happened to Del Rio happen to him.
WWE and the fans in this case just need to show a little patience.
Lastly, the Mid-Card needs Cody Rhodes to be its face. It needs him to be there over the next few years to win and lose Intercontinental Championships and bring the best out of guys like Seth Rollins, Richy Steamboat, and Mike Dalton who are just making their way up to main roster, so that they can become the faces of the division and Rhodes can eventually ascend to the Main-Event.
Patience is an art WWE has lost and is something that needs to be found and used in the case of Cody Rhodes. It is also something fans need to find as well because its better in the long run.
So I will ask again, whats the rush?
