What Is the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic?

The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is a tag team tournament, held exclusively under the NXT brand once every few years. As the name of the tournament suggests, the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is named after the American Dream Dusty Rhodes, an American professional wrestling legend who died in 2015.
