Cody Rhodes and Goldust were on top of the world until the New Age Outlaws ruined their push.
Rhodes and Goldust were one of the most exciting parts of WWE just a few months ago. They had lots of great tag-team matches and Goldust looked like he was in the best shape of his life. Not to mention they had good chemistry with the likes of The Usos and The Shield. It appeared the future was bright for the brothers, until their push got stopped by Billy Gunn and “Road Dogg” Jesse James.
I still don’t know why Gunn and James were picked to win the tag-team titles from Rhodes and Goldust. Gunn and James were working as trainers backstage and are around 50 years old. Why were they picked to become tag-team champions again?
When Rhodes and Goldust lost the titles, everyone thought this would lead to the two brothers into a feud. The brothers wanted to face each other at WrestleMania XXX and it looked like this was going to finally happen. Fast forward to today and that match is not happening at all. Rhodes and Goldust are just in the Andre the Giant 30-man Battle Royal for no reason at all.
Gunn and James on the other hand are now teaming up with Kane to face The Shield. This booking makes no sense at all as it seemed like the New Age Outlaws accomplished nothing buy bury Rhodes and Goldust when they stole the tag-team titles from them.
I understand Gunn and James are now on TV just because they are one of Triple H’s buddies. Still, I hope they go back behind the scenes because they’re no longer needed. All they did was have the tag-team titles for a few weeks just to lose them to the Usos and bury Rhodes and Goldust at the same time.
