Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament final set for next week’s NXT

 
 

The final match of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament will be held on next Wednesday’s NXT on USA Network.

Last night on NXT, The Grizzled Young Veterans and the team of Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne advanced to the final match after they overcame The Undisputed Era and Imperium respectively.

The NXT UK tag team of Zack Gibson and James Drake got the best of The Undisputed Era after all four members of Imperium appeared to distract the NXT Tag Team champions. Unfortunately for Imperium though, Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner failed to go past Dunne and Riddle for an all-UK final.

To reach the finals The Grizzled Young Veterans went through Alex Shelley and Kushida in the first round and later Fish and O’Reilly while Riddle and Dunne defeated Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster in the first round and later Imperium.

With The Undisputed Era out of the tournament it means that first-time winners will be crowned next week. Samoa Joe and Finn Balor, the Authors of Pain, The Undisputed Era, and Aleister Black and Ricochet are the previous winners.
