Two teams are headed to the finals of the women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic on NXT 2.0!

NXT 2.0 opened with the first semifinal match that saw Dakota Kai and Wendy Choo take on Raquel Gonzalez and Cora Jade. Kai looked unhinged for much of the match, still unsure about her friendship with Wendy Choo, especially when facing off against her former tag team partner.

Midway through the match, Toxic Attraction members Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jane attacked Gonzalez on the outside of the ring, evening turning the odds in favor of the unlikely underdog duo of Kai and Choo. A determined Raquel insisted on continuing in the match, eventually re-entering and attempting to get the win with a Chingona Bomb, but her injured leg gave out on her as she tried to deliver the move to Dakota Kai and she received a DDT for her trouble.

With Cora Jade isolated on the outside of the ring, Dakota Kai secured the shocking upset victory for her team when she hit a double stomp off the top rope onto the prone and injured Gonzalez.

The second semifinal match of the evening saw the vivacious team of Kacy Catanzaro face off against former NXT Women’s Champion and NXT UK Women’s Champion Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray. The frenetic match saw Kacy and Kayden nearly score another upset victory, but in the end, Io Shirai was able to score the pinfall victory after a moonsault.


Elsewhere on NXT 2.0, Grayson Waller defeated LA Knight in a Last Man Standing Match and Tiffany Stratton fell to Fallon Henley after interference from Sarray.
