Re-ranking WWE's 50 greatest tag teams

#35 The Legacy

The sons of WWE Hall of Famers Dusty Rhodes and The Million Dollar Man, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase, respectively, made their first real impact in WWE as tag team partners. Under the tutelage of fellow third-generation Superstar Randy Orton, Rhodes & DiBiase were truly a young and hungry force to be reckoned with. Winning the World Tag Team Titles in their first battle together set the tone for the two competitors over the next two years.

They would clash with some of WWE’s top teams and Superstars including John Cena & Batista, DX, Chris Jericho & Big Show and CM Punk & Kofi Kingston. Although they eventually dissolved into enemies, as two-time World Tag Team Champions, both Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes proved early in their careers that they were destined to live up to the legacies on their fathers. — K.P.
