With NXT having earlier today announced that the mystery MSK team will be competing in the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, it’s now been revealed that this tandem will actually make their NXT debuts on tonight’s broadcast.
Previously, the Dusty Classic First Round bout of MSK vs. Jake Atlas and Isiah “Swerve” Scott was expected to take place on next week’s NXT show – but that contest has now been brought forward to tonight!
The identify of MSK is being kept hush-hush right now, yet many believe that this team could be Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz. Xavier and Wentz teamed with Trey Miguel as the Rascalz in IMPACT Wrestling until this past November.
All three wrestlers made their IMPACT departures before 2020 was out, with Xavier and Wentz signing WWE deals. For Miguel, he’s presently a free agent with reported interest from both WWE and AEW.
This latest news means that this week’s NXT will feature three Dusty Classic matches, with the Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole and Roderick Strong vs. Breezango, and Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Ever-Rise also taking place.
Elsewhere, Candice LeRae will battle Shotzi Blackheart, while NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano faces Dexter Lumis in a non-title match.
