This was a very entertaining bout and another example of Cody Rhodes and Goldust not being able to have a bad match.
Cody and Goldust almost elevate whoever they are in the ring with just by being there. They know how to sell, they know how to get the crowd pumped up if they start to wane and, most importantly, they know how to wrestle circles around just about anybody.
But that doesn't mean anyone should take any credit away from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. These are two big brawlers with a lot to offer, and they contributed just as much to the quality of this match.
Harper and Rowan ended up picking up the win with a little help from Bray Wyatt on the outside, which probably means we have our next contenders for the Tag titles decided.
Daniel Bryan came out with a steel chair to make the save after The Wyatt Family tried to attack Goldust and Cody after the match was over.
These two teams could have a great feud. The only people in WWE who can be creepier than Goldust are The Wyatt Family, and that will make for some interesting television.
Some notes from the match:
Goldust had no face paint at all by the end of the match.
- The little detail of Rowan not budging an inch when Goldust taunted him really drove home how demented these characters are supposed to be. Everyone flinches when Goldust gets in their face, but Rowan didn't move a muscle.
- I love that Cody Rhodes and Goldust bring a lot of chants out of the crowd. Their popularity is a testament to the crowd's appreciation for real talent.
- Will any weapon ever be as iconic in wrestling as the steel folding chair?
