The semifinals for the 2022 men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic are set following this week's WWE NXT.
Both MSK and Grizzled Young Veterans advanced past the quarterfinals with wins this week. MSK's Wes Lee and Nash Carter defeated Jacket Time's Kushida and Ikemen Jiro to move on, while GYV's James Drake and Zack Gibson defeated Chase University's Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward to advance.
MSK will now face Malik Blade and Edris Enofe in the semifinals, while Grizzled Young Veterans will take on The Creed Brothers.
MSK captured the 2021 men's Dusty Cup, defeating Grizzled Young Veterans in the finals. Grizzled Young Veterans have made the finals two years in a row, as they dropped the 2020 tournament finals to Riddle and Pete Dunne.
Should they win it all, MSK would become the first team to win the Dusty Cup twice. Grizzled Young Veterans are former NXT UK Tag Team Champions.
