MSK’s Wes Lee and Nash Carter are one of the two most experienced teams in this WWE NXT tournament as they have previously succeeded in the Dusty Rhodes Classic. MSK was the champions of the 2021 tournament while the Grizzled Young Veterans have made it to the finals two years in a row. After not being able to pick up the victory, they will now enter the tourney for the third occasion.
