Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne def. Grizzled Young Veterans to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic
After an exciting 2020 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, it all came down to the finals pitting Matt Riddle &Pete Dunne against the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions Zack Gibson & James Drake.
The high-stakes nature of the match was evident from start to finish with both tandems demonstrating their elite tag team chemistry from the get-go. This included a key moment early on in which a two-on-one assault by The Grizzled Young Veterans outside the ring caused an injury to The BruiserWeight’s shoulder and threatened his team’s chances for the win. Nevertheless, Dunne and Riddle would fight through it and unleash a series of tandem offenses that matched the aggression of their dangerous foes.
The two determined combinations continued to trade the advantage back and forth as the contest ragged on, growing more and more intense with each passing moment as both tough-as-nails tag teams refused to be outdone in the all-out free-for-all.
In the height of the match, Dunne was nearly taken completely out of the action. But, somehow he roared back with heroic resolve. And after executing a flurry of offensive maneuvers, The BroserWeights worked together one more time and executed a faithful popup into a devastating kick to pick up the three-count and claim the Dusty Cup Trophy!
