This week on NXT the finals of the 2021 WWE NXT Men’s and Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic matches were decided, with both matches taking place this Sunday at the ‘Takeover: Vengeance Day’ event.
Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart will be taking on Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez in the Women’s final with the winners earning a shot at the Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Blackheart and Moon outlasted Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell with Blackheart getting the pin after hitting a Senton on both LeRae AND Hartwell at the same time then covering Hartwell for the three count.
In the first of this weeks men’s semi-finals, MSK defeated Legado del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde) and then in the main event The Grizzled Young Veterans advanced by defeating Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher.
That, of course, means MSK will be taking on The Grizzled Young Veterans in the final this Sunday. The winners of the match get the Dusty Classic trophy and also earn themselves a future title shot for the Tag Team Championship belts, currently held by Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch.
