WWE NXT General Manager William Regal announced the first-ever Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic to take place this year. This comes after last week’s announcement of the latest edition of the Men’s Tag Team Classic.
There were no details announced for the event, but it would most likely follow the similar eight-person elimination format followed in the men’s division.
The lack of established tag teams in the Women’s Roster could lead to main-roster teams joining the fray.
As for the Men’s Classic, eight teams were announced for the event. It is unclear whether more teams will be added, or will they stick to the eight-person format.
The Men’s tourney starts next week, with Grizzled Young Vets taking on Ever-Rise. The Undisputed Era is scheduled to take on Breezango next week.
Below are the teams announced for the tourney.
* The Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake and Zack Gibson)
* The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Roderick Strong)
* Legado del Fantasma
* Drake Maverick and Killian Dain
* Curt Stallion and August Grey
