The Grizzled Young Veterans def. Kushida & Alex Shelley in the first round of The Dusty Classic

Kushida & Alex Shelley vs. Grizzled Young Veterans – Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round Match: WWE NXT, Jan. 15, 2020

Kushida & Alex Shelley reunite to take on Zack Gibson & James Drake in the final match of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic’s First Round. Catch WWE action on WWE Network, FOX, USA Network, Sony India and more.

The reunion of Kushida & Alex Shelley electrified Full Sail, but they ran into a focused buzzsaw in The Grizzled Young Veterans, who spoiled the storied duo's return to the ring to advance in The Dusty Classic. 

Kushida & Shelley often looked like they had barely missed a beat since their days tagging in Japan, showcasing their rapport with expertly applied double-team offense — but not quite at the level to topple James Drake & Zack Gibson, who claimed victory after hitting the Ticket to Mayhem on Shelley. 

Met with an opportunity for a sportsmanlike handshake with their opponents afterward, The Grizzled Young Veterans wanted nothing to do with it, instead declaring that their only mission is to capture The Dusty Cup.
