This was a good match from start to finish. Everyone performed at a quick pace and offered up the usual exciting moves.
Rhodes' nearly botched moonsault to the outside was a close call, but everything else in the match went very smoothly, save for the ending.
He and Goldust picked up the win, but the more interesting development is what went on between Cesaro and Jack Swagger during the match.
Both men tagged themselves in when the other was trying to win the match, causing quite a bit of friction. The Real Americans attacked the Rhodes brothers after the match, but the Usos came out and made the save.
Either WWE is planning to break up The Real Americans soon, or they are going to be the next challengers for the tag titles. Or both.
The WWE may choose to have them challenge for the titles, lose and then break up because of it. Whatever ends up happening, at least one good match will come out of it.
Some notes from the match:
- The way Cesaro tried to catch Rhodes when he came off the ropes with a moonsault to the floor area and almost missed catching him looked so dangerous. Rhodes could have been hurt if that had gone just a little worse than it did.
- Still, it was an impressive showing of strength from Cesaro to lift him back up onto his shoulder.
- Steve Austin should be proud of the mudhole Cesaro stomped in Rhodes. I counted more than a dozen stomps.
- WWE did a terrible job of editing what was clearly a messy backslide into a clean one at the end of the match.
