Kushida & Alex Shelley battle Grizzled Young Veterans in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic
The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic continues tonight on USA Network, with the team of Kushida & Alex Shelley reuniting to battle NXT UK’s Grizzled Young Veterans.
Kushida & Shelley are no strangers to each other as longtime friends and tag team partners. The two were standouts in Japan, capturing the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Titles on two occasions.
But Grizzled Young Veterans are no slouches either. Zack Gibson & James Drake are the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions and held onto the titles for a solid portion of 2019. Now, they’re looking to make their mark in the Dusty Classic and have a chance to do just that in a marquee first-round battle. However, Gibson & Drake are days removed from a vicious Ladder Match at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool II that has left them with plenty of bumps and bruises.
Will Kushida & Shelley show they haven’t lost a step or will Grizzled Young Veterans spoil their reunion?
