The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Is Back

Lemme tell you about the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic if you will…… you were supposed to read that in the voice of The American Dream by the way!

Anyway, the man in charge of NXT, William Regal has just announced that the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic will be coming back to NXT this year and it will be coming to an end at NXT Take Over New Orleans right before WrestleMania.

The third Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is going to be taking place over the next few weeks and like the last couple of tournaments, The Dusty Cup will be the prize. However this year things are being kicked up a notch as the winning team is also going to get a shot at the NXT Tag Team Titles at Take Over New Orleans.


Past winners were Samoa Joe and Finn Balor in 2015 and the Authors Of Pain in 2016. The tournament starts in two weeks and I am pretty excited to see if it is just going to be actual NXT tag teams or if there are going to be some surprise pairings entering the tournament.
