The 2021 men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is down to its final four teams.
The quarterfinals of the tournament concluded with Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher defeating Undisputed Era's Adam Cole & Roderick Strong and Legado Del Fantasma's Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde defeating The Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado) on NXT tonight.
Both semifinal matches in the men's Dusty Classic will take place on NXT next Wednesday. Ciampa & Thatcher will face The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake), while Mendoza & Wilde will face MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter). The teams that win those matches will advance to face each other in the men's Dusty Classic finals at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on Sunday, February 14.
The Grizzled Young Veterans defeated Kushida & Leon Ruff in the quarterfinals. MSK defeated Drake Maverick & Killian Dain.
After Ciampa & Thatcher defeated Strong & Cole in tonight's main event, the show ended with The Grizzled Young Veterans confronting Ciampa & Thatcher on the stage. The teams were about to get into a brawl before it was broken up by officials.
MSK also came out to the stage and cut a promo after Mendoza & Wilde defeated Metalik & Dorado tonight.
The team that wins the men's Dusty Classic will receive the Dusty Cup and a shot at Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch's NXT Tag Team titles.
