I honestly don't agree with Ziggler being the next anything to tell you the truth. The only reason he gets a reaction is because Vickie Guerrero is by his side day in - day out... Now don't get me wrong, he is an excellent performer and isn't shabby on the mic but, he is unable to draw a reaction by himself.
Cody Rhodes on the other hand, in my mind, is the best WWE performer there is. This guy will flat out whoop ass, will cut you down on the mic, and has a look a persona that couldn't be accomplished by any other current superstar. He has taken what Randy game him from Legacy and soared miles high. This is one of three guys that I will listen to word for word and not once take my eyes off the screen. The other two being Wade Barrett and CM Punk.
