Re: Exclusive: More Details On Injured Star In SD Tapings
I love how people here are like "yay, now Dam13n S4nd0w can winz all the titulz!" We all knew Rhodes Scholars wasn't going to be anything even close to permanent, but is it really the worst thing to establish Sandow as a decent tag team partner? It's not as if Cody was holding Sandow back--if anything, the team was gaining both guys exposure in that "revitalized" tag team division everyone clamors for. So now everyone is thrilled that we've (probably) lost one of those teams just because they figure that the one guy who was going to get pushed anyways is suddenly going to get a Ryback-level push?
It does suck to see that Cody's going to be out for however long. After WM, he lost a shit-ton of mometum and while the tag team wasn't going to push him to superstardom, it was good to see him being used. Now we're just going to have to see how things go upon return.
And really, Cody? I would've been okay with ADR, Orton, or Sheamus (and I mean really okay). But at least it wasn't Barrett, I would've flipped my shit if he had to be out again.
