Kushida & Ruff first teamed together when they lost to Gargano & Theory on NXT last month. On this week's New Year's Evil episode of NXT, Kushida & Shotzi Blackheart defeated Gargano & Candice LeRae in a mixed tag team match.
The Bollywood Boyz are facing Stallion & Grey in a non-tournament match on 205 Live tonight.
The men's Dusty Classic will kick off with Undisputed Era vs. Breezango and The Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Ever-Rise taking place on NXT next Wednesday (January 13). The team that wins the tournament will receive the Dusty Cup and a shot at Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch's NXT Tag Team titles.
