Re: Why do they have to put Sandow and Rhodes into a team?

Since Sandow is one of HHH's boys, they put him in a tag team so he never has to get pinned.

Re: The Rhodes Scholars

Honestly they should have paired up Rhodes and Drew. They teamed up before anyways.
Leave Sandow alone WWE!

Re: The Rhodes Scholars

I like the tag team. It gives them something to do while two other heels hold the midcard titles.

WWE clearly seems high on Sandow, so I don't think that they are going to do anything that would hurt him unless he violates the wellness policy or something. Rhodes on the other hand.. When they implode, Rhodes would probably get the worse end of the deal.

Re: The Rhodes Scholars

They won't last that long, and tbh that's a good thing since it doesn't really help either one of them to be in a tag team. Sandow is a good personality by himself, and Rhodes needs to get back into the IC title picture.

Tyrion, btw, Rhodes will be the bitch of the duo. I think it's already established if you consider how poorly they've been pushing Rhodes lately. Sandow stands out more than Rhodes already (while solo), so it'd make less sense for him to take the losses (never been pinned) or end up taking the blame for failures. Rhodes' character has pretty much already been built to take punishment and get made fun of.

Re: The Rhodes Scholars

At least this tag team will be more successful that Rhodes and Drew. The most pointless tag team that held a championship in at least 5 years.

Never in a million years, it was a pure sympathy push to make Edge happy because he had to retire.

Until Extreme Rules 2011, he was a complete failure, a complete, midcard, minor league failure. And I fucking love Christian but the truth is what it is. If you haven't had the world title, you're nothing, your career has no merit and I won't accept Sandow as nothing.

He might be the one who comes out of it great. I don't know, maybe Rhodes is the one who gets buried the shit out of, and I'm cool as hell with it if that's the case, but I don't know if it will be. One of these guys WILL have dramatic career death when this team is over because WWE doesn't do tag teams another way, they pick one guy and the team is used to get one guy over, the other one is ALWAYS thrown away. The Rockers, Edge and Christian, the Hardy Boyz, the Hart Foundation, Miz and Morrison, Eddie and Chavo, the Steiner Brothers, etc. I mean that's just how they do things. I admit up to this point they SEEM higher on Sandow, but I don't know if they're gonna knock Cody completely on his ass, because they've invested a lot of time in him. The only thing I know is that both guys are not becoming world champion, only one of them is, that's not acceptable unless Cody is the one who gets the axe.
I agree with what you are saying about not winning the title = your run and whole career is worthless. In general, I don't care how much someone is pushed or how much fan reaction they get, if they don't win the world title and someone else does, that other person is better than them because they have held the title. It would only not apply to the divas or true tag teams like the Usos, since the Divas title is the world title for a Diva and the tag team titles are the world title to a tag team, since in both cases they are the only title they can compete for. Any male singles competitor NEEDS to win the world/WWE title otherwise it has all been for nothing IMO.

As for Rhode Scholars, I am also worried that they might bury Sandow. I hope not since he is the future of WWE if they book him correctly.

How can that be possible when last Friday Sandrone took 20 chairshots from Kane and Bryan? :bryan

What is this? Don't tell me you buy into such a ridiculous philosophy? That's the definition of markdom.

Putting that aside, I actually wouldn't mind having Sandow and Rhodes bounce in the midcard and be occasionally inserted into a higher up role where they may participate in the main event scene on occasion (along with DB and Kane of course). That's only a personal preference though as I know slow steady pushes are a rarity in today's climate. I want to see some legitimate acts who can be a long lasting impression in viewer's minds rather than recreating a similar scenario to "oh yeah, that Jack Swagger guy. Wasn't that tard a world champ before he fell into a fissure?" Quick, half baked pushes very rarely work unless there's a strong premise behind the character/performer.

Re: The Rhodes Scholars

Rhodes is better than Sandow but that doesn't mean I don't think Sandow is bad he is still great but it's good that they r keeping them in the mix since they have no fueds right now as singles.
