Last week, WWE announced several of the teams billed for the Dusty Rhodes Classic tag-team tournament. Today, more names in the 16 team event were released, and it’s shaping up to be a great event.

Those joining the NXT special event include Lince Dorado & Mustafa Ali, No Way Jose & Rich Swann, HoHo Lun & Bin Wang, The Authors of Pain, Niko Bogojevic & Tucker Knight, TM-61, and The Bollywood Boyz. These teams will join the previously announced roster which includes Kota Ibushi & Hideo Itami, Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss, Bobby Roode & Tye Dillenger, Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa, Cien Almas & Cedric Alexander, and NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival.

Austin Aries will be taking on the competition with an as of yet unknown partner.

Last, but certainly not least, is the inclusion of Team Aries, which includes Austin Aries and a mystery partner. Already a marked man in the eyes of Ibushi, Aries obviously is looking for the right answer to the Japanese equation he must solve to survive.

This tournament is shaping up to be a treat. With a plethora of grudges to settle, up and coming teams able to show off what they can bring to the ring, and even some international flair in the mix, this will certainly be worth the watch.
