Buried he is not.
I don't get how people can claim someone is being buried when they're either champion or just lost the title. As someone mentioned before with Punk, its kinda crazy. Being champion and being buried cannot be used in the same sentence. "Not being used right" is kinda ok.
ANYWAYS, I hope whatever they do with Cody he isn't misused or anything. I've basically been 1 of "those guys" that hasn't liked most of the younger WWE guys. Rhodes though has been 1 of my favorites. Even back in Legacy when everybody was all over Ted Dibiase saying he'd be ending Taker's streak by now, I liked Rhodes more. I didn't know why cause he was best described as "What the default character in the Smackdown vs Raw games would look like if he was real" but now look at him. For me hes the guy that might keep me entertained for awhile.
