Men's and women's Dusty Classic matches set for next WWE 205 Live


Next Friday's edition of 205 Live will feature matches in both the men's and women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournaments.

WWE has announced that Ashante "Thee" Adonis & Desmond Troy will face Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari in a men's Dusty Classic first round match on 205 Live next Friday. There will also be women's Dusty Classic action on 205 Live next Friday, though the match that will be taking place on the show has yet to be revealed.

Toni Storm & Mercedes Martinez, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter, Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell, and Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon are the first four teams announced for the women's Dusty Classic. It was stated on 205 Live tonight that the women's Dusty Classic will begin on 205 Live next week, but a first round match between Storm & Martinez and Catanzaro & Carter has already been announced for next Wednesday's NXT.

Undisputed Era's Adam Cole & Roderick Strong, MSK, The Grizzled Young Veterans, Killian Dain & Drake Maverick, and Legado Del Fantasma's Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde have advanced to the second round of the men's Dusty Classic thus far.

Two men's Dusty Classic first round matches have been announced for next Wednesday's NXT. Kushida & Leon Ruff will face NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano & Austin Theory, while Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner will face Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado.

The full bracket for the men's Dusty Classic was revealed earlier this week. It's a 16-team tournament where the winning team will receive the Dusty Cup and a shot at Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch's NXT Tag Team titles.
