The teams in the Dusty Classic are revealed.
Eight teams will participate in the third Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Those eight teams include The Authors of Pain, Street Profits, Heavy Machinery, Sanity, and Moustache Mountain. The entire bracket was tweeted by NXT's twitter account and can be seen below.
NXT General Manager William Regal announced the tournament earlier this week. The broadcasts will begin in two weeks.
The first tournament happened in 2015 after the passing of Dusty Rhodes who was working closely with NXT at the time. There has not been a Dusty Classic since 2016. The past winners include Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and The Authors of Pain.
Former NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain have the opportunity to become the first two-time winners of the Dusty Classic. Regal also announced the winner of the tournament will get a championship match at NXT Takeover: New Orleans.
Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage of the tournament and NXT Takeover: New Orleans. There will be a recapping podcast after the Takeover event.
