Pete Dunne & Matt Riddle took on Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster tonight as part of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and the highly energized duo came away with a win, taking down their opponents to advance to the next round of the classic.

After the Dunne & Riddle victory, it was time for another match in the Tag Team Classic, this time featuring a fan-favorite tag team duo in the form of Kushida and Alex Shelley. After coming out to a large greeting, the duo was unfortunately unable to grab the win, as they suffered a brutal loss at the hands of the Grizzled Young Veterans. While it looked like Kushida and Shelley could grab a victory, Kushida was interfered with at the end, as he was shoved off the top rope by Drake, which allowed both he and Gibson to land their finish on Shelley for the win.
