Cody, Dustin & family unveils Dusty Rhodes Classic Cup at WWE NXT TakeOver: Respect

Sasha Banks and Bayley's main event won't be the only emotional moment on tonight's WWE NXT live special, TakeOver: Respect.

In fact, it may not even be the thing that brings the most tears, considering that the show is also WWE's tribute to the late, great Dusty Rhodes, who meant so much to everyone in wrestling, but especially those he worked with day-in and day-out at the Performance Center over the last several years.

On the Kickoff show, Byron Saxton gathered Dusty's widow and children to unveil the Dusty Rhodes Classic Cup, which will be awarded to the team that wins both of their matches at TakeOver to win the inaugural tag tournament held in his honor.

I'm betting this is one wrestling trophy that doesn't get destroyed as soon as it's unveiled. But, Dream would probably want it to be.

Will it go to Finn Bálor & Samoa Joe, Chad Gable & Jason Jordan, Baron Corbin & Rhyno or Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson?

We'll know in just a few hours.
