Royal Rumble Review: Kickoff Show: Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. The New Age Outlaws for the WWE Tag Team Championships


The New Age Outlaws are the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

This match was unbelievable. Good back-and-forth early on that set the tone. So many awesome moves and reversals. The spot where Cody reversed one of Road Dogg’s moves into an awesome Cross Rhodes was amazing.

This could have some big repercussions, though nothing happened on-screen between the two guys, it could be later to come in the Royal Rumble match itself.

Seeing these guys come back and win the tag team titles is very interesting. It’s a great story due to their long history with Triple H. At their age many would not expect them to be able to carry their weight in the ring, but they did that here big time.

The end to this match was great, Billy Gunn had a blind tag on Road Dogg. Cody hit Road Dogg with a Disaster Kick and while he was recovering, Gunn hit him with the Fameasser for the win.

We should see plenty of dissension between the two brothers in the Royal Rumble match, but I still see them getting their rematch together at February’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

Winner: The new WWE Tag Team Champions, The New Age Outlaws
