Ever since the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic was announced just over a week ago, fans have been wondering how big the field is. Last time we checked in, there were a handful of teams, such as Undisputed Era, Ever-Rise, Breezango, Imperium and more announced.
205 Live has also been announced to be part of the tournament, and will even host matches, letting them have a bigger field while keeping a steady pace. Let’s take a look at every current announced team, and what teams are being teased by talent and fans alike.
There Are Currently 11 Teams In The 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic
The current field for this year’s tournament alone would make it one of the best ever. Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole & Roderick Strong are looking to bring another win home. Breezango are looking to prove they weren’t fluke champions. Johnny Gargano & Austin Theory are gonna do things the Gargano Way.
Drake Maverick & Killian Dain who have been pegged as future winners of the tournament, given past odd couple winners. Grizzled Young Veterans want to avenge their finals loss last year to Broserweights. Imperium wants to prove that the ring belongs to them, even with WALTER overseas. KUSHIDA & Leon Ruff have only teamed up once, and lost, but if they’re named “RuffHour”, they’re my pick.
205 Live will be represented heavily as well. Jake Atlas & Isaiah Scott have bumped heads recently, but could put their differences aside for a title shot. Ever-Rise will just petition any losses very loudly, but have been really upping their game recently. Bollywood Boyz want to prove they are much more than just Jinder Mahal’s goons. August Grey & Curt Stallion want to just keep moving after both getting fast starts after their debuts.
What Other Teams Are Possible Here?
If the goal for the tournament is sixteen teams, giving two clean brackets with eight, we need five more teams. Bronson Reed took to Twitter to ask for Dexter Lumis as a partner, which would be a very interesting team to get us to twelve. Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese were a steady team in 2020, with some great matches against the likes of August Grey & Curt Stallion under their belts, getting us to thirteen.
Fourteen could be the debutting Rascalz, a tag team that’s been around for years now, and both members recently got signed to WWE. They’d both make the cut for 205 Live as well, boosting that roster. Fifteen could be reached with Brian Kendrick & Ashante Adonis, playing off their 2020 feud which saw Adonis really grow as a wrestler. Sixteen should be Moustache Mountain, but it might be hard to move Trent Seven & Tyler Bate to America for this tournament, so instead can we get Ever-Rise as Los Conquistadores?
