You would think that these two men would find something in common based on their characters. Cody Rhodes is the son of a "Common Man", or Dusty Rhodes.

How credible was Priceless? How credible was Holly, and Rhodes? How credible was Rhodes, and McIntyre? Those tag teams with the exception of Priceless were awful, and the only reason Priceless was anything was based on Legacy, and feuding with DX. Cody Rhodes has never made a tag team interesting. He is far better on his own as a singles star, and should be groomed right now as a top "face". He may not have the natural charisma his father had, but Cody has "it". This is Cody's 4th tag team in less than 3 years. That is awful. He should be competing for the WHC.
Actually he isn't. Sandow gets given his mic time to get his gimmick over (which is good work by WWE), but aside from that, Rhodes gets the pins, they use his theme and his name is in the tag team name not to mention even when Sandow gets to take the lead on the mic, Rhodes gets to do his own thing as well and to be honest he even gets the best lines.

Wow, are you guys really arguing over whose theme is used and who gets the better lines? Just be happy that we finally have an awesome tag team

Trust me when I say I'm not arguing. I gave up doing that on here a while back I was just making a point.

Right now Sandow is easily one of the more "over" heels in the WWE. Rhodes has been in how many tag teams prior? He has stood out in none of them. Why would this be any different? Especially with someone like Damien Sandow who clearly outshines him. Who cares who gets the pins, and both men get the pin falls. As to whether Cody gets the best lines is completely irrelevant. It's not what you say, but how you deliver it. Right now Sandow is at the top of his game when it concerns mic work, and over all character. Big deal if Rhodes' name is in the tag team name because that's about as creative as they will ever get with him, making a tag team name from his name. I will applaud that.

House show reports say both of them are decently over although it must be pointed out that Rhodes is a heel that lately has gotten face reactions (like Ziggler). They even tested him out as a face in Egypt.
Rhodes in a tag team as a rookie is hardly fair for comparison. Rhodes was a rookie (an actual rookie) with Holly and even Dibiase in Priceless, and in Legacy he was a lackey. Hardly a chance to stand out. As for Rhodes/Mcintyre he actually did stand out. In fact he outshined the 'Chosen One' with Mysterio reportedly wanting to work with Rhodes at Wrestlemania soon after the split. As for Sandow outshining him? Completely disagree. Sandow is a great mic worker and I respect his abilities greatly as I do Cody's but every time there's an eloquent mic worker in WWE they get lauded as a god. Both Sandow and Cody are great mic workers. Different mic workers at that actually. Sandow is very natural, Rhodes has tremendous variation. In terms of credibility btw, Rhodes is probably one of the most credible tag team wrestlers around. 4 tag title reigns puts him up there. He's always meshed well in tag team wrestling too.

Did they? Who did he face? I know he faced Ziggler but the report I read said Ziggler played the babyface.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

This.

To answer the OP's question, Sandow entertains me, Rhodes doesn't. And just Rhodes being in the tag team means I can't enjoy Sandow as much. I'm hoping that Sandow and Rhodes do not win the titles at Hell in a Cell, which would hopefully lead to them breaking up and Sandow getting the rightful singles push he deserves.

Re: Who else finds Rhodes Scholars EXTREMELY entertaining?

Yes but they need to do something more with them. These two have the best talent and best mic skills on he roster and need to be used right. Give Team Rhodes Scholars more promos.
