The stakes were raised for the two remaining teams in the finals of this year’s annual Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic Tournament on Saturday night.

The finals of the 2020 Dusty Classic will feature The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) taking on the team of The BroserWeights (Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne) on the next episode of NXT On USA.

WWE’s black-and-gold brand returns to their weekly Wednesday Night Wars time slot at 8 p.m. Eastern Time / 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, January 29th, with the tourney finals — which are now also scheduled to be a number one contender title eliminator match for the right to challenge for the NXT World Tag-Team Titles at the next NXT TakeOver live special.

During Saturday night’s WWE Worlds Collide: NXT vs. NXT UK live special event from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, it was announced in a ringside interview segment with the aforementioned foursome that the winning team in the 2020 Dusty Classic Finals on Wednesday’s edition of NXT On USA will advance to NXT TakeOver: Portland 2020 to challenge for the tag-team titles.

Currently, The Undisputed ERA’s Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish are the reigning NXT World Tag-Team Champions. If they hold onto the gold until Sunday, February 16th — the date of NXT TakeOver: Portland 2020 — they will be defending the titles against either The Grizzled Young Vets or The BroserWeights in the second official championship contest booked for the live NXT special.
