Re: Pre-Show: Brodus Clay & Tensai vs Team Rhode Scholars
Tyrion, I can understand your argument but Sandow jobbing in a tag team match doesn't completely mean he is buried. Yes, his position isn't very good at the moment but he has just been in the WWE for 9-10 months (under this current gimmick) and it will take time to rebuild. Just look at Ziggler at the beginning of 2012. He was taking the pinfall loses in tag team matches and Swagger was protected. Ziggler was losing against Clay in single matches whereas Swagger was losing by count out. Look at them now. I know you're going to say "this isn't the 1990s where pushes come years later, this is 2012 where pushes must be quick". Apart from Sheamus and Del Rio, who has been over-pushed? One thing that the current product gets critised for is rushing pushes and getting wrestlers straight to the main event card. Swagger, Tensai and others failed because of that. I would mention Miz as well but his push was actually structured well as he spent time in the tag team division, mid card division and they pushed him to become WWE champ.
My point is that even if Sandow loses, it's not a career-defying loss. You don't get put in segments with DX and The Rock (two times now) for no reason.
