The Grizzled Young Veterans def. NXT Tag Team Champions The Undisputed ERA in a Dusty Classic Semifinal
Call it a surprise, call it an upset, call it whatever you'd like, but The Undisputed ERA will not be taking home the Dusty Cup this year after being knocked off by The Grizzled Young Veterans thanks to some help from Imperium.
The UE landed the first blow ahead of Saturday’s Worlds Collide showdown with NXT UK's most dominant faction, but Imperium returned fire with a vengeance. Suddenly appearing at Full Sail, NXT UK Champion WALTER and his allies captured the attention of Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly long enough for Zack Gibson & James Drake to seize their moment with the Ticket to Mayhem, advancing to the finals of The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Meanwhile, the NXT Tag Team Champions' defeat only added fuel to their already flammable issue with Imperium.
