Etymology

The name is a play on the Rhodes Scholarship, and is formed from Cody's last name and Damien Sandow's claim to be a teacher of the masses (like an educated scholar).

They announced their name in response to the formation of Team Hell No, so the addition of 'Team' as a prefix to their title is based on that. WWE.com has abbreviated this to The Rhodes Scholars in an article.[1]

Background

Cody was in the middle of a feud with Sin Cara, and Damien was in the middle of a feud with Brodus Clay. They initially united against these common foes.

History

Aug 27 Raw they were defeated by Cara and Clay.

Sept 21 Smackdown, Damien defeated Kane and Cody defeated Daniel Bryan. This was attributed to Daniel distracting Kane during Kane's match, and then Kane distracting Daniel during his.

The pair united and lost to Kane and Daniel in a lumberjack tag team match.

The following raw on Sept 24, Cody and Damien attacked Team Hell No after they received their new name, and debuted their own.

  1. Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow attacked Team Hell No : "Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow stormed the ring, stunning the Tag Team Champions and debuting a name of their own: "Team Rhodes Scholars." The Rhodes Scholars didn't stop there, however, seemingly laying down a challenge for Hell No's Tag Team Titles. It would appear that chair attack from SmackDown has not been forgotten."
