With the WWE Slammy Awards in two weeks and the year quickly coming to an end, it’s time for the Give Me Sport Wrestling Awards 2013.
It’s been a big year in professional wrestling, in which we have seen many memorable moments and incredible matches. Both WWE and TNA have produced five star pay-per-views and matches in 2013 and this is the moment where the achievements of both companies and those of their employees are celebrated.
The categories in the awards are newcomer of the year, heel of the year, babyface of the year, pay-per-view of the year, match of the year, female wrestler of the year, wrestler of the year and company of the year. But we start off with the tag team of the year.
Tag Team of the Year
Honourable Mentions: Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, Bad Influence, The Usos, Team Hell No.
Winners: The Rhodes Brothers
If someone told me a year ago that Goldust and Cody Rhodes would win the WWE Tag Team Championships and go on to be the tag team of the year I would have found it very hard to believe.
What I would have found even harder to believe is that Goldust would be putting on some of the best performances of his life. Yet all of this is true and The Rhodes Brothers are the current WWE Tag Team Champions and have helped to revitalise the tag team division after years in the doldrums.
For the last two pay-per-views in a row The Rhodes Brothers have been involved in the match of the night. They have main-evented RAW and Smackdown in high-paced and intelligent matches, in which both Goldust and his younger brother Cody have shown their ability to survive at a top level.
Goldust shocked many fans with his great performance against Randy Orton on RAW in September and Goldust has been a model of consistency every since.
Cody Rhodes has had the best year of his WWE career, performance wise and has earned himself a world Title run in 2014.
What sets this tag team apart from all the others and earns them the tag team of the year award is that they are yet to have a bad match. Not every match has been five stars, although some have been, but in an era when most stars wrestle below average matches on a weekly basis, their achievement is incredible.
The fact that they have helped to rejuvenate the WWE tag team division and make tag team wrestling interesting for the first time in years is enough to earn them the title of tag team of the year.
