TJ Perkins will partner with Kota Ibushi in Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic

Earlier today, Hideo Itami confirmed his recent neck injury would force him to withdraw from the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic that just got underway on NXT television this week. That left Kota Ibushi without a partner.

William Regal to the rescue:

"Hello. As you've heard, Hideo Itami can not continue in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Tournament, which leaves Kota Ibushi without a tag team partner. Now Kota Ibushi wants to continue in the tournament. So I decided to team Kota Ibushi with a man who I know Kota Ibushi has great respect for: the winner of the first Cruiserweight Classic tournament and the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, TJ Perkins. I wish both men great luck."
