The tournament’s most experienced two teams have a history of success in the Dusty Rhodes Classic. The 2021 event was won by MSK’s Wes Lee and Nash Carter, and the Grizzled Young Veterans had made it to the finals two years in a row despite not being able to win. The bracket is set up in such a way that a rematch of the 2021 final match between the two teams is possible. Check out the full Instagram post below.
