The opening round of this year’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic kicked off on NXT 2.0 this week.
In the first match-up, The Creed Brothers from The Diamond Mine took on Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen. It ended up being a showcase for Julius & Brutus, with Malcolm Bivens hyped for his guys ringside. The duo will move on to the semifinals where they await the winner of Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Andre Chase & Bodhi Hayward next week.
Later, Edris Enofe & Malik Blade, who only got in thanks to Harland getting disqualified for being himself a bit too much, went at it with Legado Del Fantasma. In yet another shocker, thanks to an unintended assist from NXT Champion Bron Breakker, Enofe & Blade scored the rollup pinfall victory to bust everyone’s bracket.
They’ll be taking on the winner of MSK vs. Jacket Time next week.
