TM-61 def. Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round Match)
The upstart team of newcomers Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss were out to make their NXT debut a successful one, with a first round win in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. However, the rookies had a tough draw in the tournament, squaring off against the experienced duo of TM-61.
The newcomers put on a good showing, using their size and strength to their advantage, bowling over Shane Thorne & Nick Miller. However, the Australian pair rebounded and put the self-proclaimed “real athletes” away, taking Sabbatelli to Thunder Valley and cementing their place in the second round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
