Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai have won the Women’s Dusty Cup, and with their title opportunity, the duo will now face off against Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax, who confronted the winners during tonight’s NXT episode.
Coming out tonight with MSK to celebrate the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners, Gonzalez and Kai were quickly interrupted by Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax, who came out to spoil the fun and mock the two. As the four superstars began to argue, MSK simply watched along with popcorn, as Baszler said that they may have won the Dusty Cup, but they’ll be on the wrong side of history when they finally get their title shot. It was then that the match was set for March 3, as Baszler said that when that date comes, they’ll show Gonzalez and Kai who the real champions are, and why.
Here is a full recap of the segment from out live coverage:
Back from the break and Alicia Taylor introduces WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix in the ring. She’s standing with the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic trophy. Phoenix recalls some words of wisdom from the late WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, then sends us to a video package on the two recent Dusty Classic tournaments.
We come back and Phoenix calls on fans to join her in welcoming the winners of the 2021 Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic – MSK. The music hits and out comes Wes Lee and Nash Carter. They take the mics on the ramp and ask Beth to excuse their excitement. They start getting hyped up and enter the ring to check out the trophy. They also hug Beth.
We see how MSK’s name is now on the trophy with the other winners. The women’s winners are also on the same plaque, meaning there will not be separate trophies. MSK then talks about their upcoming opportunity, naming NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Beth asks MSK to join her in welcoming the winners of the first-ever Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The music hits and out comes Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.
Kai and Gonzalez hit the ring and MSK opens the ropes for them to enter. Fans chant “you deserve it!” now. Beth asks how they’re feeling. Kai says they feel awesome, crushing the competition will always take their breath away but moments like these are why they do it. Kai says they were by far the best tag team in the tournament. The music interrupts and out come the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions – Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Baszler starts in on the mic. MSK also opens the ropes for Jax and Baszler. Baszler says Kai and Gonzalez were on the right side of history at Takeover, but when they face off, they will be on the wrong side of history. Kai introduces Gonzalez to Jax and Baszler since she wasn’t here when they were in NXT. Kai says Jax is big, and Baszler ran away when Rhea Ripley beat her ass. Gonzalez asks if that’s the same Ripley she beat in a Last Woman Standing match. Baszler says this is the same ‘ol Dakota Kai, who’s scared like when Baszler broke her arm. Kai says she’s not the same person but if Baszler wants to find out, she will happily kick her head off. Fans cheer them on as MSK and Beth watch from the corner, eating popcorn. Gonzalez says a lot has changed since Baszler left as she doesn’t run the place, they do. Gonzalez mentions the title match will happen in two weeks and says they will make sure Baszler realizes who runs NXT at that time.
Jax calms everyone down and says she came here to honor Dusty as she had the privilege of working with him. She recalls Dusty saying, “Baby you are one big beautiful badass b—h!” She says Dusty was right, and she and Shayna are the most dominant force in WWE. Gonzalez says Dusty, God rest his soul, never met her. Shayna says either way, two weeks on March 3, they’re coming back to Dakota and Raquel’s home turf to humiliate them. The champs exit the ramp as their music hits. Gonzalez interrupts and says she’s going to shove her boot so far up “Nia’s hole” that she will never get it out. Wes Lee collapses and spills his popcorn, as fans pop as Jax and Baszler look back from the stage.
