WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. The New Age Outlaws (Kickoff Match)

Joey Styles: As luck would have it, McMahon Family flunky and SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero distracted The Brotherhood long enough for Billy Gunn to steal a win with a handful of Cody's tights and “earn” a title match for Attitude Era stalwarts The New Age Outlaws. All that said, Cody and Darth Goldie can play dirty, too, and they’ll do so on Sunday, retaining their titles and continuing to live The American Dream. WINNERS: Cody Rhodes & Goldust

Matt Zimmer: The New Age Outlaws are back and haven’t missed a step since their return. As good as Cody Rhodes & Goldust have been since The Bizarre One’s return to WWE, Road Dogg & Billy Gunn may have an ace up their sleeves in DX teammate and WWE COO Triple H. If The Game gets what he wants, The Outlaws will have two words for The Brotherhood … new champs. WINNERS: The New Age Outlaws

Alex Giannini: What a way to kick off Royal Rumble! Sure, seeing Goldust and The New Age Outlaws on a pay-per-view brings back some awesome Attitude Era memories. Truth is, though, The Bizarre One has never looked better, and Billy Gunn & Road Dogg can still go. Throw Cody into that already volatile mix, and you get one hell of a tag team battle. With their motives still unclear and a history of title gold, The Outlaws are a dangerous threat to the champions. But the brothers Rhodes have faced down all challengers thus far, and I think they’ll pull through once again. WINNERS: Cody Rhodes & Goldust

Sean Cohen: Though Cody Rhodes & Goldust are looking to show that nothing is more important than family, I think The New Age Outlaws are going to prove to the WWE Universe that “They still got it!” and earn their sixth WWE Tag Team Championship — even if it means relying on assistance from their friends in high places. WINNERS: The New Age Outlaws

John Clapp: Regardless of which duo comes out on top, this is a victory for fans of tag team wrestling. The Outlaws’ ageless offense looks tighter than ever, and Cody Rhodes & Goldust’s teamwork is without comparison. Look for the bout’s youngest Superstar, Cody Rhodes, to be the reason that the WWE Tag Team Titles stay put. WINNERS: Cody Rhodes & Goldust

Cody Rhodes & Goldust: 3, New Age Outlaws: 2
