Tag team champions

September 17 they qualified as #1 contender to the WWE Tag Team Championship (after it had absorbed the World Tag Team Championship) tag team title by winning a non-title match on SmackDown against then-champions the Hart Dynasty.

September 19 they successfully wrested the title from the Dynasty at the Night of Champions 2010 pay-per-view by eliminating Mark Henry and Evan Bourne (who would later form APPLE). They then successfully defended it September 24 after the Dynasty invoked a rematch clause.

October 1 they lost a match against then-WWE champion Randy Orton. October 8 they defeated the team of Kofi Kingston and Kaval.

October 15 both members were unable to join Team Smackdown for Bragging Rights, Drew and Cody lost to Kofi and Rey Mysterio respectively.

October 24 at Bragging Rights 2010 they later lost their titles to Nexus members John Cena and David Otunga. They were unable to get a rematch for the titles because the following night Cena and Otunga dropped the titles to fellow Nexus members Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel. After losing to Big Show and Kofi Kingston on the following Smackdown, TDO broke up.


November 5 they both lost a 3-way match for the number 1 contendership to the IC title when Drew was pinned by MVP. Cody and Drew were later participants in a 3-way number 1 contendership for the Heavyweight Championship (versus Big Show) but ultimately Cody was pinned by surprise 4th contestant Dolph Ziggler who outwitted him.

Cody and Drew later went on to pursue individual feuds against Rey Mysterio and Edge respectively. Cody would later also become an Intercontinental champion, then form The Rhodes Scholars, while Drew would form 3MB.
