Will Roderick Strong and his mystery partner prevail in their Dusty Classic showdown?
Over the weekend, there was a shakeup in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Moustache Mountain was forced to withdraw from the tournament after it was revealed that Tyler Bate had an injury that would keep him out of action.
Luckily, it didn’t take long for a team (actually, just an individual) to stand up and take their spot. Roderick Strong asked for an opportunity to enter the Dusty Classic with a partner of his choosing, to which NXT General Manager William Regal agreed.
As a result, Strong and his mystery partner will battle the hard-hitting duo of Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch tonight on NXT in the final First-Round Match of the tournament. Despite the secrecy surrounding Strong's partner, Lorcan made it clear on Twitter that he and Burch will be ready tonight.
Danny Burch and I don't necessarily agree that half the team we are suppose to compete against is a secret. This is unfortunate, however, no matter who this secret is we will be prepared for @roderickstrong and his secret to match up against us. https://t.co/eoU6iIHMJ5— ONEY Lorcan (@_StarDESTROYER) March 19, 2018
Who will Strong select to be his tag team partner, and will he and his teammate be able to withstand the punishing offense of their opponents and advance to the Semifinal Round against SAnitY?
See who will advance in this Dusty Classic matchup tonight at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
