The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is starting to take shape.
WWE announced the teams of Hideo Itami & Kota Ibushi, Tomasso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano, Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss, Bobby Roode & Tye Dillinger, The Revival, and Andrade Almas & Cedric Alexander for their now annual tag team tournament.
The tournament culminates at this year's NXT Takeover: Toronto show. Last year's tournament was won by Finn Balor and Samoa Joe, who would go on to feud for the better part of a full year.
Kota Ibushi is the only name technically not under WWE contract, as he's continued freelancing with the company. Ibushi made it to the semifinals of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic this summer.
Other teams confirmed for the tournament are the Authors of Pain, TM61, The Bollywood Boyz, and Alexander Wolfe and Sawyer Fulton.
NXT Takeover: Toronto takes place November 19 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.
