My favorite WWE feud of 2013

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Forget The Rock vs. John Cena. Forget CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar. And last but certainly not least, forget Punk vs. The Rock.

In my opinion, my most absolute favorite WWE feud of 2013 involves two up-and-coming young WWE Superstars.

Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow first teamed up together on the August 27th, 2012 episode of Monday Night RAW when they lost to the team of Brodus Clay and Sin Cara, but they didn't officially became a tag team until the September 21, 2012 episode of Friday Night SmackDown in which they began a feud with Kane and Daniel Bryan.

Now known simply as Team Rhodes Scholars, they battled Kane and Bryan over the WWE Tag Team Championships for several months until the Royal Rumble PPV but were unsuccessful at winning the titles.

For the next several months, Rhodes and Sandow languished in mid-card nation while being pushed aside by the likes of Cena, The Rock, Lesnar, Undertaker, Punk, Triple H, and other big names heading into WrestleMania 29, often used as either enhancement talent on RAW and SmackDown or being relegated to Superstars, Main Event, and Saturday Morning Slam on some occasions.

Despite all this, they did enter a feud with Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay and Tensai) as well as teaming up with Brie and Nikki Bella to counter with the Funkadactyls (Cameron and Naomi). Their match was cut from WrestleMania 29 due to the WWE focusing too much attention on the big names as well as time constraints but in the end, Tons of Funk got the better of the feud.

Tensions between Rhodes and Sandow continued for the next couple of months as they lost most of their matches, but things would change with these two men big time.

The split began at last July's Money in the Bank PPV where Sandow threw Rhodes off the ladder to claim the MITB briefcase just as Rhodes was about to grab the briefcase and the following night on RAW, Rhodes attacked Sandow after Sandow lost to Christian.

But my favorite part of this feud was when Rhodes stole Sandow's briefcase during Sandow's match with Randy Orton (this year's MITB briefcase winner for a future WWE Championship match) and then managed to throw the briefcase into the Gulf of Mexico in which Sandow was unable to retrieve the briefcase since he can't swim.

And now, the former BFFs will be facing each other at SummerSlam on August 18th which I hope extends until at least the Survivor Series PPV on November 24th.

    my personal favourite and i know most people on here and the internet in general will disagree but i loved John Cena Vs. The Rock, i loved the idea of Greatness vs. Redemption, ill admit though the build up to their wm match wasnt exactly all that good, but be honest did they really need to do to much since all has already been said last year and the year before that. But thats also why i loved it over everything else this year, because its a feud for the ages that been going since Wrestlemania 27 right up till Wresltemania 29 who else can pull that off and not get bored of it?

    I don't know, not over yet, but I've been enjoying Heyman vs Punk thus far.

    Punk vs. Lesner. I say this b/c I have no idea who will win this match at SS. Punk cannot afford another loss against a main event guy (he has lost to cena, rock and taker this year already). Meanwhile, I cannot see Lesner losing if he is going to be used in the main event or a high profile match at Wrestlemania.

    I won't argue you with this assumption. For me, it is between this and Punk/Heyman. I really love undercard feuds with actual history and meaning between them. Heck, Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes feud is the best undercard feud since Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio around WM27. These two have definetly kept things going interesting.

    Hard to argue with Sandow n Rhodes, hopefully both will rocket going into 2014.

    Big fan of CM Punks work, Anything with Punk n Hayman's pure gold.
