Royal Rumble: New Age Outlaws Will Win Their 6th Tag Team Championship

The WWE has announced that the Royal Rumble pre-show match will be for the tag team championship as the Rhode Brothers (aka Goldust and Cody Rhodes) will take on the challengers, the New Age Outlaws.

The New Age Outlaws are one of the most well-known tag teams in WWE history, and were a key part of the Attitude era back in the late 90s. They are five-time tag team champions of the world. I usually put pre-show on in the background for PPVs, but I will watch it this year due to this match. It should be a good one, and I strongly believe that the New Age Outlaws will win the titles for the sixth time.

They have been back for a bit, and it looks like they are going to be a part of the main roster for the time being. I think it is a good thing for a couple reasons. First, they can still work with anyone on the main roster. Secondly, newer guys can learn from these two. Either way you look at it, it is a positive thing all around.

The Rhode Brothers have had a good run with the gold and will be missed, but it is time to break them up. They have dominated the tag team division, and it’s time to let them have their brother vs. brother match at WrestleMania 30. The New Age Outlaws can hold the titles until WrestleMania 30, where they can put a new tag team over that will carry the tag titles for the foreseeable future. The WWE can’t book it any better than that.
