Earlier in the day, WWE released the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament brackets. Among the 16 teams listed was MSK, a team that we had yet to meet. As expected, it was the Rascalz. The men formerly known as Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz are now using the ring names Wes Lee and Nash Carter.
MSK defeated Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Jake Atlas in the first round of the tournament.
MSK in WWE NXT
The two high flying stars signed with WWE back in December. Though the third member of the Impact Wrestling stable Trey Miguel did not sign with the promotion at the time and it was reported that he was still weighing his options.
This wasn’t the only match of the tournament that took place during tonight’s episode of NXT and The Grizzled Young Veterans defeated Ever-Rise to advance in the first round of Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic as well.
MSK will now be face the winners of the match between Kushida & Leon Ruff and The Way in the second round.
