The field for the women’s Dusty Cup took shape at Vengeance Day

Last night’s episode of NXT told us which men’s tag team would have their name etched on the Dusty Cup this year (The Creeds). It also spent a lot of time lining up teams for the second-ever women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Tournament. Which is good, because that starts next Tuesday (Feb. 22).

Raquel González & Cora Jade are training hard, and we’ve already seen them trade verbal jabs with Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon. Kay Lee Ray & Io Shirai are doing team-building exercises. Two teams will balance romance angles with their quest for the Cup, but Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter seem to be much more focused than Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta. Amari Miller told Wendy Choo she already has a partner, so Wendy is trying to recruit Dakota Kai to the Choo Crew. Meanwhile, Legado Del Fantasma’s Elektra Lopez says she doesn’t even need a partner.

That leaves us with some question marks, but a pretty good idea of the eight-team field.
