Rhodes returned to SmackDown; Team Rhodes Scholars def. The Usos

Damien Sandow came before the WWE Universe, comparing his search for a single, worthy apprentice to finding a needle in a haystack. The self-professed “Intellectual Savior of the Masses” then welcomed his mustachioed tag team partner, Cody Rhodes, back to SmackDown — who was sidelined for several weeks following an injury at the hands of Kane. Rhodes made it clear the quest for an apprentice was over, as Sandow’s “equal” had returned.

In the fast-paced match that followed against The Usos, Jimmy Uso flipped Rhodes into the ring, only to have his brother Jey take the second-generation Superstar out again with an explosive clothesline over the top rope. While impressive, the commotion allowed the legal Sandow to roll Jimmy from behind and pick up the quick three-count with a handful of tights.

Will the reunited Team Rhodes Scholars be able to use this momentum to overcome Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara in a No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tables Match at WWE TLC? (MATCH PREVIEW)
