As announced on Wednesday’s NXT, the 2021 edition of the tournament honoring the late WWE Hall of Famer and one of the pioneers behind NXT’s success, will commence in two weeks on NXT. The winners earn an NXT Tag Team Championship opportunity.
Adam Cole & Roderick Strong already declared their intention to compete on behalf of The Undisputed ERA. Brackets and the remaining competitors will be revealed next week on NXT New Year’s Evil.
The unlikely duo of Pete Dunne & Riddle won last year’s Dusty Classic, and they went on to defeat The Undisputed ERA for the NXT Tag Team Titles at NXT TakeOver: Portland. Other previous winners include Ricochet & Aleister Black, current NXT Champion Finn Bálor & Samoa Joe, and The Undisputed ERA’s Cole & Kyle O’Reilly.
