Roderick Strong & Pete Dunne def. SAnitY (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals Match)
So far, so good for the least-experienced duo in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
Roderick Strong & WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne might only be two matches into partnership, but as they proved in their Semifinals win over former NXT Tag Team Champions SAnitY, they’re already operating like longtime teammates.
The victory was anything but easy, with Eric Young & Alexander Wolfe throwing everything in their arsenals at the makeshift duo. The bout was rough-and-tumble, with fists flying throughout. Wolfe & Young claimed numerous near falls, but Strong & Dunne exhibited exceptional teamwork, breaking up several pin attempts to stave off elimination.
After a flurry of big hits by Strong & Dunne, The Messiah of the Backbreaker tossed Young into Dunne’s clutches, allowing The BruiserWeight to connect with a variation of the Bitter End for the win. Strong & Dunne’s remarkable run now leads them to next week’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals, where they prepare to face The Authors of Pain in a match that will not only decide the tournament victors, but also the next challengers for NXT Tag Team Champions Undisputed ERA.
