Dusty Rhodes tag team classic
The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is an annual tournament for the tag teams that WWE produces under the NXT division. To date there have been four editions and the first winners of the tournament were Finn Bálor and Samoa Joe, who defeated Rhyno and Baron Corbin in the final. This year will be the fifth edition and there are still no details if the final will be played at a yellow mark show or the next Takeover.
The last edition of the tournament was held in 2019, with eight participating teams where the prize, in addition to the prestigious tournament, was an opportunity for the NXT tag team championships in the Takeover: New York special. It was also the first time where the entire tournament was held in the yellow mark shows and the finale did not end in a Takeover.
