Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart successfully made it to the final match in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. On this week’s NXT, the duo defeated the tough team of Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell to advance. They will be taking on Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai this Sunday at TakeOver: Vengeance Day.
Both teams in the semi-final match tonight showed great teamwork. In the final moments of the match, Moon hits her Eclipse on LeRae. Hartwell puts herself on top of LeRae to protect her after the move. Blackheart then hits a Senton on both women and pins Hartwell for the big win.
After the match, the winning team celebrates as their challengers come out to face them. Both teams go face-to-face in front of the Dusty Classic Trophy before General Manager William Regal comes out to make an announcement. Not only do the winners win the trophy and make history as the first winners of a women’s Dusty Cup but they also get a shot at the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
The current Women’s Tag Team Champions are Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler who recently became two-time champions at the Royal Rumble. Currently, the number one contenders of Lana and Naomi have the next shot at the champs. That match has not been given a date yet.
