The 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic will kick off next week with the first matches. We are still waiting for the full 16-team brackets, but some of those teams have already been revealed.

16 teams will battle for a chance to wrestle for the NXT Tag Team Titles. Those belts are currently held by Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, but no date for that match has been announced.

You can check out the updated list of teams below.

  • Jake Atlas and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott
  • The Way (Austin Theory, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano)
  • The Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake, Zack Gibson)
  • Ever-Rise (Chase Parker, Matt Martel)
  • The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Roderick Strong)
  • Breezango (Fandango, Tyler Breeze)
  • Legado del Fantasma (Joaquin Wilde, Raul Mendoza)
  • Imperium (Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner)
  • Drake Maverick and Killian Dain
  • Curt Stallion and August Grey

The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is a great time to show off a tag team’s skills, but it is also an opportunity to establish new alliances. We’ll have to see who comes out on top this year. Past winners include Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle, Undisputed Era, and Finn Balor and Samoa Joe.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
