The Dusty Cup is back!
During the January 4, New Year's Evil edition of NXT, it was announced that the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic would be kicking off soon. Per WWE, the men's tournament will begin in two weeks, January 18, while the women's tournament will commence in February.
The winning team not only earns the prestigious trophy, but also a shot at the Tag Team titles. Last year's victors were MSK for the men and Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai for the women (this was the first year the women's division was included in the Dusty Cup). Both teams would go on to hold the belts.
The tournament first began in 2015, with Finn Balor and Samoa Joe winning the inaugural event.
