Team Rhodes Scholars was unable to challenge Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara in the final of the Tag Team Championship No. 1 Contenders' Tournament (Mysterio was ill with the flu and unable to compete; the final will take place next week on Raw), but the brainy brawlers had themselves a stiff challenge all the same in the form of former WWE Tag Team Champions Primo & Epico. 

And make no mistake, Primo & Epico made it difficult for Team Rhodes Scholars right off the bat, attacking both Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow before the bell even rang. When the contest did get going, Primo & Epico employed their dynamic offensive style to keep the Scholars from getting into a groove. Once Rhodes and Sandow began to pick up steam, however, the tide of the match began to turn in the favor of the Tag Tournament finalists, with Sandow and Rhodes swarming Primo to keep him from tagging in his cousin and teammate. The dual beatdown continued for some time, with Team Rhodes Scholars alternating offense on Primo until the former champion was finally able to rally and summon the fresh Epico to take over the match.

Epico came into the match like he was shot out of a cannon, stunning Sandow with a burst of offense that nearly spelled the end for Team Rhodes Scholars. But Rhodes made the save, although the ensuing chaos was enough for Sandow to counter Epico and slam him to the mat with Terminus, giving Team Rhodes Scholars a grade-A victory as they head toward Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara and the Tag Tournament Final next week on Raw.
