NXT: Mustache Mountain Are The Clear Favorites To Win The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic
Who should win the WWE Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic? As the tournament kicks off on NXT, we know the winner will get a shot at Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish at Takeover New Orleans. The brackets have been announced. There are a few team’s that have a shot at winning. The only logical choice to win is Mustache Mountain.
Trent Seven and Tyler Bate make up the Mustache Mountain tag team. The two British stars are at the top of their game in WWE. Both have electrified the crowd with their amazing matches. While Bate might be in the doghouse of WWE officials, the tag team tournament is the place he breaks the cold streak. Most importantly, this is where the two become superstars in NXT.
Fans love Bate and Seven. Actually, fans love all the European division on NXT. They are some of the best technical wrestlers in the world. And while some aren’t as technical based (Mark Andrews), that’s the style Seven and Bate bring to the table.
To advance to the Finals of the Dusty Rhodes Classic, Mustache Mountain will have to beat Oney Lorcan and Danny Birch in the first round. Then they’ll match up against either Sanity or Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss in the round two. Both are tough tasks for them. Although, they should come out on top.
If WWE wants to push the European stars, this is the best way to do it. Have the team of Mustache Mountain win and face off against O’Reilly and Fish. They might not win that match. But, the prestige of being named Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners will go a long way for the team, and the entire European division.
A win at the Classic adds some credibility to the entire European wrestlers. With Pete Dunne already one the most established Champs in WWE, a Mustache Mountain win would do the same.
As mentioned before, the path for Mustache Mountain is quite simple. Lorcan and Birch aren’t established enough to get them through the first round. And assuming Sanity beats Moss and Sabbatelli, the road to Takeover got a lot easier.
It’s highly unlikely Sanity faces off against O’Reilly and Fish again. Indeed, we could see Mustache Mountain get the victory to bring someone new into the title picture.
Many are clamoring for some new blood to step up in the NXT Tag Division. Hence, Mustache Mountain is that new blood. In fact, they are over with the crowd, great wrestlers, and a fresh take on the tag team scene. Thus, this is the logical choice to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. So, if they don’t, they don’t. However, NXT needs them to win. It’s going to do wonders for the stock of not only the tag division but European division as well.Follow @DGentleman9288
