SAnitY def. Tye Dillinger & Bobby Roode (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round Match)
ORLANDO, Fla. — Anarchy reigned this week, as NXT kicked off with the unsettling arrival of SAnitY.
The NXT Universe was ecstatic about seeing Tye Dillinger and Bobby Roode join forces for the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The two soaked in the perfectly glorious adulation from the crowd, though the revelries were cut short with their opponents’ arrival.
SAnitY revealed themselves as not just a tag team, but a squad of four hooded figures, stalking their way to the ring through a dark haze. The first two to reveal themselves were Sawyer Fulton and Alexander Wolfe, who would be representing their chaotic crew in the match. Fulton and Wolfe pounced on The Perfect 10 from the outset of the match, even letting their cohorts at ringside get a few shots in.
Dillinger, who wanted to win the classic in memory of Rhodes, his mentor, soon found himself on his own, as Roode ditched him when the four members of SAnitY stared him down. That spelled the end for the “Glorious 10,” as he fell victim to a devastating double team move that saw SAnitY through to the second round.
The punishment did not end there for Dillinger, as the other two members of SAnitY joined in on the attack. The smallest member of the group dove on Dillinger, raining down blows on The Perfect 10 before revealing herself to be Nikki Cross. The last, mysterious member of the crew pulled the furious Cross off Dillinger, before leveling The Perfect 10 with a wheelbarrow neckbreaker. The final member of SAnitY tore away his facemask to reveal Eric Young. In just a few short minutes, SAnitY may have turned the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and NXT, upside down.
