The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic returns for 2021
The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is back!
The tournament honoring the late WWE Hall of Famer and one of the pioneers behind NXT's success, returns for 2021, with the winners earning an NXT Tag Team Championship opportunity.
Action kicks off Wednesday on NXT as Cole & Strong battle Breezango, while The Grizzled Young Veterans take on Ever-Rise.
The unlikely duo of Pete Dunne & Riddle won last year's tournament, and they went on to win the NXT Tag Team Titles at NXT TakeOver: Portland. Other previous winners include Ricochet & Aleister Black, current NXT Champion Finn Bálor & Samoa Joe, and Cole & Kyle O'Reilly.
