2018 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic bracket
The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is back, and WWE.com has you covered with the full tournament bracket.
The Dusty Classic kicked off on March 7 and will continue in the coming weeks on WWE NXT on WWE Network. The winners of this year’s tournament will face NXT Tag Team Champions Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly for the titles at TakeOver: New Orleans on Saturday, April 7.
So far, three First-Round Matches have taken place:
- The Authors of Pain def. TM61 on March 7
- SAnitY def. Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli on March 14
- Street Profits def. Heavy Machinery on March 14
That leaves one First-Round Match to go. The hard-hitting pairing of Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch were originally scheduled to face Moustache Mountain on the March 21 edition of NXT, but Moustache Mountain were forced to withdraw from the tournament due to an injury to Tyler Bate.
In response, Roderick Strong asked NXT General Manager William Regal to let him and a partner of his choosing take Bate & Trent Seven's place, to which Regal agreed. As a result, Strong and his mystery partner will battle Lorcan & Burch this Wednesday in the final First-Round Match.
Which team will prevail in this year’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and go on to challenge for the NXT Tag Team Titles at TakeOver? Tune in to NXT every Wednesday night at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network to watch all the action unfold!
