Following the announcement that the tag teams participating in this year's Dusty Classic will be announced on New Year's Day, NXT Superstar Bronson Reed took to Twitter tonight to pay tribute to Dusty Rhodes, before stating that if he's not in the Dusty Classic, he's going to "bionic elbow all of creative".
Meanwhile, Dio Maddin, who's currently training at the WWE Performance Center as the former RAW announcer pursues a career in the ring, would respond to Reed and seemingly offer his services up as the NXT man's tag team partner for the tournament.
