Kay Lee Ray & Io Shirai will face Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter in the semifinals.

The teams of Kay Lee Ray & Io Shiral and Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter have advanced in the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament.

Ray & Shirai defeated Lash Legend and Amari Miller on tonight’s NXT after a moonsault press from Shirai on Legend. Later in the show, Catanzaro and Carter defeated Ivy Nile and Tatum Paxley, with Paxley taking the fall after a 450 splash/neckbreaker combination from Catanzaro and Carter. As a result, the two teams will face each other in the semifinals of the tournament.

The two other remaining opening round matches will have the team of Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta face Wendy Choo and Dakota Kai, while Cora Jade & Raquel Gonzalez will face Yulisa Leon and Valentina Feroz.

The first women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic took place last year. In the finals, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez defeated Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart. Kai and Gonzalez were later named the first NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.
