NXT will not only feature the sixth-annual Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic this year, but the women of NXT are set to make history as well.

The first-ever Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic will take place, as announced by NXT General Manager William Regal at NXT New Year's Evil.

Stay tuned to WWE's digital and social platforms, and watch NXT Wednesdays at 8/7 C on USA Network in the coming weeks as participants are announced and the competition kicks off.

The men's edition commences next week as The Undisputed ERA's Adam Cole and Roderick Strong face off with Breezango, while The Grizzled Young Veterans battle Ever-Rise


How many women's tag teams do they have in NXT?

I imagine we'll get Raquel & Dakota, Candice & Indi, maybe Io & Shotzi. Probably a couple of teams from Raw or Smackdown too.

I haven't looked at their tag roster for NXT women lately, but off the top of my head they have:

1. Candice & Indi
2. Dakota & Raquel
3. Catanzaro & Carter

So obviously there will be some makeshift teams, but I do hope they add teams like the Riott Squad, Baymella, or even Sasha & Bianca.

Could also see them adding:

Duke/Shafir

a makeshift team like Shotzi/Ember Moon

and maybe another female to pair up with Aliyah as the new Robert Stone Brand

Looks like the mens tournament will have 16 teams. Surely there wont be they many for the womens?

Considering it will likely be a championship shot to the winners I would expect involvement from the main roster. Riot Squad, Dana/Mandy etc..

Did we confirm it is Karen Q involved with Xia?

I don't know when this tournament will take place but I wouldn't put Xia in it with anyone. I say that because I don't expect her to win, and she needs to be kept strong for now with her new character.

I'm assuming they bring in a couple of teams from NXT UK if travel is permitted.

I wonder when this tournament will take place. I wouldn't think it would take place during the same time as the Men's Dusty Classic, which will probably go all the way to the Valentines Day Takeover. So, will this take place going into Mania? Later in the year?

Aliyah has been posting pics of herself & Kavita Devi together in their gear, so I'm guessing they might be paired together for this.

Including main roster women would be great as do it as winners get a shit at the WWE women's tag team titles and have them win it.

Riott Squad would be perfect for this and The Way team of Candice & Indi could be great final opponents for them. Dakota & Raquel is another NXT team who make the finals as well.

Not yet but given the obvious Chinese connection its more than likely her, back in Oct they trademarked Karen Kwan so thats likely her new name. I'm personally 99% sure its her.
I don’t think even WWE is stupid enough to build up this mysterious Chinese character and then reveal her name as Karen.

I would be absolutely shocked.

Karen Kwan is the type of name you give a wrestler with a figure skater gimmick. If Xia’s leader doesn’t have some kind of Mortal Kombat type name she’s dead in the water.

Of course with the names they gave Retribution, I guess anything is possible.

Well the first matchup is next week.

Kacy/Kayden vs Mercedes/Toni.

Normally I would be backing Mercedes and Toni to advance, but I have a feeling Io is returning next week to screw them over for disrespecting her and attacking her.

Not exactly easy to tell but sure doesn't look like Karen Q in that costume. Whomever it is they have a badass gimmick to get to the top if they can wrestle.

You might be right about but she is currently listed on the roster under that name so before this story came about maybe that was the name they had planned for her.

Going by the Chinese names WWE trademarked recently and confirmation of the faction being called Tian Sha last night another possible name for her name could be Shi Hun which translates to Soul Eater or Lost Soul
