Aleister Black & Ricochet prepare for semifinals action against #DIY
Black & Ricochet overcame the dynamic force of Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel in the first round, while NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano got back to their old ways with a victory over Undisputed ERA’s Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly. Both teams now find themselves one victory away from stepping into the final round of the Dusty Classic, which begs the question: Who will advance?
Black & Ricochet have made headlines across NXT, Raw and SmackDown LIVE as one of the best things going in the Tag Team division. For Ciampa & Gargano, a pair with enough history to fill an ESPN “30 for 30” special, their experimental reunion has proven to be successful, thanks to wins secured across the red, blue and black-and-gold brands.
In a collision that could alter the trajectory of both teams, the pressure will approach boiling levels when they lock up inside the squared circle for an explosive showdown.
It’ll be do or die when Black & Ricochet battle #DIY on the road to the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Final and NXT TakeOver: New York, where the winner of the tournament will face NXT Tag Team Champions The War Raiders.
