NXT announced the inaugural Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and the tourney is all set to kick off next week. Four teams have been announced so far, and it is assumed that four more will be added quite soon.
With NXT’s limited roster, main-roster stars are bound to get involved at some point, and former Tag Team Champion Bayley wants to be a part of tag-team history.
Bayley vouched for a place in the tournament on Twitter while ruling out a possible team-up with Carmella. Bayley and Sasha Banks enjoyed tremendous success together as the Golden Role Models. She has ventured into a singles role since breaking up with Sasha Banks in the summer of 2020.
WWE hasn’t announced the total participants or the brackets so far, but more details will surely be revealed ahead of the first round next Wednesday. The men’s edition kicked off this week with sixteen teams in the tournament.
It was reported a few months ago that WWE doesn’t want main-roster and NXT stars mixing together due to COVID concerns, which is why NXT stayed off Survivor Series this year.
If WWE decides to employ the same approach, it is tough to see Bayley getting her request approved by Triple H!
