The Men's And Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Tournament Continues Tonight On NXT
The black-and-gold brand will see several Quarterfinal Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic matches featuring MSK, The Grizzled Young Veterans, and Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez. Check out the full preview here.
The Men’s & Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic continues on NXT.
In the Quarterfinals, The Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake, Zack Gibson) and MSK (Wes Lee and Nash Carter) will hope to advance into the semi-finals. Both teams will face off against Leon Riff & Kushida and Drake Maverick & Killain Dain respectively.
In the main event, NXT Champion Finn Balor has chosen to tag with Kyle O’Reilly to fight NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Now that the war between O’Reilly and Balor is over (at least for now), the NXT stars mutual respect for one another will hopefully carry over in the non-title match-up against the champs.
However, Lorcan and Burch have been teaming for years and we’ve seen in the past, tag team competition vastly differs from singles. Can the NXT Champ and his recent challenger co-exist long enough to beat the veteran duo?
All this and more is set for tonight’s episode of NXT on the USA Network at 8pm Eastern Time. Check out the confirmed match-card below:
