The show opens this week with a short video announcing the start of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament. NXT General Manager is in the ring and says, since the first one was so successful, they decided to do it again this year. He also announces that the first round matches will take place on NXT. The regular show opening plays.

Tom Phillips welcomes us to the show and announces that tonight, we pay homage to the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes and kick off the second Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament. We go right to the stage for opening match introductions. The Bollywood Boyz are out first. After they make it to the ring, They are featured in a pre-taped short promo where they introduced themselves then Harv said they are here to make a statement. Gurv chimed in with a comment about a “butter chicken beat down”. He finished the promo by saying that they aren’t the types to say to say we told you so but when its all said and done, “We told you so!!”

The Authors of Pain and Paul Ellering come out and make their way to the ring.

First-Round Match in The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament:

Match 1: The Bollywood Boyz (Gurv & Harv Sihra) vs. The Authors of Pain (Akam & Rezar with Paul Ellering)

Rezar starts things off against Harv Sihra and Sihra starts right away slapping Rezar across the face. Rezar shrugs that off, picks up Sihra and carries him to the Author’s corner. He lays Harv across the turnbuckle and makes the tag to Akam. They pound Sihra with forearms and Akam picks him up for a slam. Sihra is able to squirm away, hit a jawbreaker, and make the tag to his brother.

Gurv takes the tag and is taken off his feet with a clothesline. Akam makes the tag to Razar and they drop him chest-first across their knees. Rezar knocks Harv off the apron and nails Girv with a corner splash. Akam takes the tag and they hit the, “Last Chapter” finisher on Sihra for the three count to advance to the next round.

Winners: The Authors of Pain

We return to see Rich Swann make his entrance followed by Patrick Clark

Match 2: Patrick Clark vs. Rich Swann

The crowd chants, “Can you handle this?” to Clark.

Patrick Clark opens with a side headlock. A shoulder block by Clark warrants a bow to the audience. Swann runs the ropes and Clark thinks he has flipped him but Swann actually out jumped Clark’s feet and caught him with a dropkick. Clark is able to sidestep a charging Swann in the corner and plant him with a spinebuster for a two count. Clark clamps on a rear chin lock.

Swann slugs his way out of the hold and nails a charging Clark with a boot to the face. Clark, stunned, charges again but Swan moves and Clark eats buckle. Swann follows up with a kick to the gut. Swann charges Clark in the corner with a running knee then a kick. He finishes Clark with a standing moonsault.

Winner: Rich Swann

Swann dances in celebration of victory. A video is shown of Cedric Alexander’s debut a couple of weeks ago against Andrade “Cien” Almas. The video set up the fact that Almas and Alexander are now partners in the Dusty Classic. They will have their first match in the Classic against the Revival later in the show. The show heads to a commercial break.

We come back from break getting set for women’s action. The announce team set up video highlights from last week of Asuka answering the challenge of Liv Morgan. The video showed Asuka making short work of Morgan and declaring, “No one is ready for Asuka!!” The video forwards to Morgan on a training table getting her shoulder examined when Billie Kay and Peyton Royce come to taunt Morgan. Morgan tries to go after them but is restrained by the trainer.

In the arena, Peyton Royce makes her entrance for the next match. Her new best friend, Billie Kay, joins her. Her opponent, Danielle Kamella is out next.

Match 3: Peyton Royce (with Bille Kay) vs. Danielle Kamella

As the bell rings, Phillips says that Kamella used to be a dancer for the Phoenix Suns and cheerleader for the Arizona Cardinals. She trained with WWE Hall of Famer, Rikishi.

Royce opens up with a body slam on Kamella. Kamella surprises her with a small package for a quick two count. Kamella tries to whip Royce to the ropes but gets reversed. She comes off the ropes with a cross body for another quick one count. Kamella follows up with a dropkick but Royce comes right back with a kick for a two count.

Royce ties up Kamella in the ropes then chokes her with a foot on the throat in the corner. Royce takes her to the mat with a rear chin lock. Kamella makes it to her feet and drives to the corner breaking the hold. Kamella presses her advantage with a handspring back elbow then opens up with heavy forearm shots to the head. Kamella attempts a suplex but Royce blocks it and hits a running knee then finishes off Kamella with a northern lights suplex for the win.

Winner: Peyton Royce

We go the back where the new team of Bobby Roode and Tye Dillinger aka Perfectly Glorious is being interviewed. They are set to debut next week and are asked how training is going. Roode gets the ball rolling saying next week is a big week for two reasons; first, they will prove they are the team beat in the tournament and secondly, takes his next step by teaming with Roode.

Dillinger interjects and says that Dusty meant a lot to him and he can think of no better way to honor him then by winning. Dillinger is distracted when Roode does the Glorious pose behind Dillinger. Dillinger asks if Roode is ok and Roode if he can feel it. When Dillinger asks what Roode says how Glorious its going to be when they are victorious. Dillinger is asked if he has any information on their opponents for next week, Sanity. Roode again cuts him off and asks why do they want to talk about Sanity when the whole world is talking about the “Glorious Ten!!” Roode then tells Dillinger he is expecting big things from him next week. Dillinger says that Glorious Ten is the team to beat as Roode is dragging him away.

The announce team hypes the debut of Dan Matha for next as the show heads to commercial.

We return to see Dan Matha make his entrance. Phillips tells us that Matha was a former college wrestler and football player and played pro football with the Cincinnati Bengals.

As Matha is waiting in the ring, the crowd starts to stir and you see Matha start to jaw with someone that appears to be headed to the ring. Samoa Joe enters the ring and proceeds with his new segment, “Beatdowns ala Joe: Week two edition. Joe grabs a mic and tells NXT General Manager William Regal that he just took out his golden boy blue chip prospect. Joe asks how much more of NXT’s future will have to suffer before Joe gets what he wants? Joe tells Regal, again, to bring him Nakamura or bring him the championship. As Joe is walking up the ramp to the back, he screams at Regal that he has one more week or things get escalated.

We cut to a shot of the hallway where the Revival is preparing to walk out to the ring for the opening round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. That match is next as the show goes to commercial.

We return from break and the Susan G Komen PSA is aired. We go the interview area where No Way Jose and Rich Swann are being interviewed. They are asked why they decided to team up? Jose says its simple; they just listened to the people. Jose says Swann knows about hard times. He said that when life tried to put him down, he simply said, “No Way!” Swann said he chose Jose because people seem to take him lightly because he likes to dance to the ring and have a fiesta. Swann says people forget he happens to be 6’3” tall and full of Latin fire so why wouldn’t I want him on my side? Swann says he has one question for the NXT Universe, he sings, “Can you handle this?” and Jose sings back, “No Way Jose” as they dance away.

A Sanity promo video airs that teases their debut for next week.

We are set for the ring entrances for this opening round match of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Almas and Alexander get individual entrances followed by the Revival.

First-Round Match in The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament:

Match 4: Andrade “Cien” Almas & Cedric Alexander vs. The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder)

Wilder starts the match against Alexander. Wilder makes a quick tag and they try to play the numbers game with Alexander. Alexander quickly backs to his own corner and all four men are in the ring ready to mix it up. Dawson starts fast with two shoulder blocks on Alexander but Alexander comes right back with a head scissors and arm drags to both members of the Revival. Dawson decides to try his luck with Almas who puts both members of the Revical in a head scissors of his own. Almas and Alexander hit tandem dropkicks that send Dawson and Wilder to the floor.

Dawson and Wilder try to devise a strategy to distract Alexander but it is unsuccessful. Alexander makes the tag to Almas and the new partners execute a double hip toss and a double dropkick to the back of Dawson’s neck. Almas goes for the cover but only gets a one count. Dawson drives Almas into his corner wher Wilder distracted Almas enough that the champs seize control. Almas is able to grab a headlock. When Dawson sends him to the ropes, Alexander makes a blind tag and they send the Revival to the floor. Dawson and Wilder looked as though they were walking out when Alexander dove over the top rope on to both members of the Revival. Alexander rolls Dawson inside the ring and goes for a pin but Dawson is out at two. Almas takes the tag and continues the upper hand until the champs execute a blind tag and perform a double team move on Almas. Dawson and Wilder target Almas’ arm and shoulder as we head to another commercial.

We return to see the Revival still in control. Dawson hits a hammerlock suplex into a bridge for a two count. Wilder takes the tag and flies into Almas with a knee off the rope but a cover only gets a two count. Dawson tags in and, after a double team move, goes for another pin but only gets a two count.

Almas is able to block an attempted suplex and put Dawson in a small package but Wilder distracts the referee and by the time the ref turns around, Dawson kicks out at two. Dawson tags Wilder then cuts off Almas from making the tag. Wilder tries a move off the second rope and sees Almas try to counter by getting his foot up. Wilder stops short of the move and grabs Almas but Almas creates space with an enziguri .
Both teams make tags and Dawson and Alexander are back in. Alexander starts unloading on both members of the Revival. He hits a handspring enziguri on Dawson but Wilder breaks up the pin attempt. The Revival tries a double team on Alexander but Almas shields Alexander. Dawson sends Almas to the ropes for an attempted roll up but Alexander sunset flips Dawson and gets a near fall. Alexander goes for a tag but Wilder pulls Almas off the ring apron. Dawson and Wilder hit Alexander with the Shatter Machine to advance to the next round.

Winners: The Revival

As the Revival celebrates walking to the back, Almas and Alexander are in the ring. The crowd starts to applaud their effort when Almas snaps and attacks Alexander. He jumps him, works him over then drops him across the ring steps. As Almas makes his way up the ramp, the crowd, “You Suck!!” Almas kneels at the top of the ramp and soaks up the boos to close the show for this week.
